The sources of organic manures were FYM,. Vermicompost,. Coirpith compost. . Neemcake and 3 levels of organic manures.1. FYM-F1 – 20.0 t ha-1, F2 – 30.0 t ha-1, F3 – 40.0 t ha-1, 2. Vermicompost, V1-– 15.0 t ha-1, V2 – 20.0 t ha-1, V3 – 25.0 t ha-1, 3. Coirpith compost- C1 – 20.0 t ha-1, C2 – 30.0 t ha-1, C3 – 40.0 t ha- and 4. NeemcakeN1 – 3.0 t ha-1, , N2 – 4.5 t ha-1, , N3 – 6.0 t ha-1 and absolute control with no organic manures. The quality analysis were done

Keywords: The quality analysis was done at 4 MAP and 8 MAPThe quality parameters analyzed were Curcumin content, Volatile oil, Non volatile ether extract, Crude fibre, starch, Total carbohydrate, Protein,
