Organic Turmeric (CIDE FREE )

Organic Turmeric experiment, grown geoponically using mixed methods.

A brief fact about Turmeric — and especially its most active compound, curcumin — have many scientifically proven health benefits, such as the potential to improve heart health and prevent against Alzheimer’s and cancer. It’s a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. That can also help improve symptoms of depression and arthritis.

It is also the spice that gives curry its yellow color. It’s been used in India for thousands of years as both a spice and medicinal herb.

And now, without further ado, let’s jump to the experiment.

Mixed methods: Is a combination of growing methodologies like, “mandro technique” or manual hydroponics, aquaponics and geoponics.

Soil medium: A combination of compost, coco peat/coir, rice hull, carbonized rice hull and local soil.

This experiment took place on the 30th of November 2017- June 23, 2018. In just less than 7 months, from transplant. This plant produces at least almost 3 kilos (2.850kilos) of clean, fresh, organic, cide  free turmeric.

Fact: Is turmeric plant invasive?

NOTE: Be aware that both ginger and turmeric can be invasive if grown in the ground. Keep an eye on your plants, and if it starts to creep outside of the garden boundaries, place a shovel where you want to stop the growth and stomp on it! These rhizomes can be very tough, so it may take some work.

Or just simple put them in a container. I hope this info is helpful.
