Correlation and path analysis studies were carried out on 14 growth and yield traits in 19 cultivars of Turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) during the year of 2011-12 at college of Horticulture, Mudigere. There was the highest significant positive association of fresh rhizome yield per plant with plant height, number of tillers per plant, number of leaves per plant, number of mother rhizome, number of primary fingers, number of secondary fingers, weight of mother rhizome (g), weight of primary fingers (g), weight of secondary fingers (g), length of primary fingers (cm) and length of secondary fingers (cm) at both genotypic and phenotypic level. There was significant and negative association of fresh rhizome yield per plant with petiole length (cm) and leaf area index (dm2 ).
