Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted in the year 2013-14 and 2014-15 in Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat district, Assam, India to analyse the total cost and profit due to different treatment combinations of inter-cropping systems and chemical weed management practices in ginger. There were 16 numbers of treatment combinations, comprising of 4 inter-cropping systems and 4 weed management practices. Intercropping of Cowpea in between rows of Ginger and incorporated at 40 days after sowing (DAS) along with the application of Metribuzin 500 g ai ha-1 + hand weeding (HW) at 70, 100 and 140 days after planting (DAP) recorded higher ginger rhizome yield, gross return, net return and benefit : cost ratio.
