Where is Pukka turmeric grown?

Pukka turmeric is grown in Karnataka and Maharashtra, two neighbouring states in the West of India. Many of our turmeric farmers also grow ginger, and in some regions they grow it as an intercrop with tulsi, sugar cane and kapikacchu (Mucuna pruriens, a medicinal legume that climbs up the sugarcane). In India alone, approximately 140,000 hectares of land are used for growing turmeric (that’s an area just smaller than the whole of Greater London).
