Further, several growers also cater to the needs of small scale industries which specialize in processing into powder form the turmeric rhizome and marketing it commercially in small packets.In order to boost production of the crop, Department of Horticulture has also introduced the var. Lakardang from Meghalaya in the state. In addition to improved yield, the introduced variety also contains higher (7-9 %) curcumin content.Turmeric shows more resistant to pests and diseases and therefore this can be a better crop for organic cultivation.
