Study was conducted to determine the shade loving turmeric can be a potential cover crop under the plantation program hence yield performance of Curcuma longa (Turmeric) under Eucalyptus based Agroforestry system, where two variety ranga and roma of turmeric crop was cultivated at in open field and under 20 years old eucalyptus plantation at 3x 3m spacing, three spacings i.e. S-1 (50cm x 50cm), S-2 (50cm x 30cm) and S-3 (40cm x 30cm). The yield obtained from open field was 225.79 qha-1 while it was reduced by 33.77% under eucalyptus plantation. In case of variety Ranga (V-1) produced maximum yield of 196.06 qha-1as compare to roma (V-2) 179.53 qha-1Among the crop spacing maximum yield of 197.63 qha-1 was recorded at S-1 spacing. The cultivation of cover crop under tree crop plantation is the land utilization management which in beneficial for tree crop and finally to growers of plantation as economical viable system.
