Abstract:

A field experiment on ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.) was conducted at College of Horticulture Dr. Y.S.R Horticultural University, Andhra Pradesh during 2014-2016 to study the yield and quality performance of ten varieties of ginger. Among the varieties, Suprabha recorded the highest rhizome yield (32.02 t ha-1), specific gravity (1.27 g cm-3) and dry recovery (22.00 %) where as the variety Regodi has recorded highest oleoresin (10.10 %). Himachal recorded significantly higher essential oil (2.95 %), Zaherabad local recorded higher peel /100 g of rhizome (18.40 g), and peel and pulp ratio (0.22) and Pundibari had recorded higher pulp/100 g of rhizome (89.80 g). There is a need for genetically superior strains contain high essential oil and oleoresin content. Besides obtain higher yields, superior quality of the produce is also important for export to fetch premium price in the international market. Quality of the produce is largely determined by the minimum fiber content and good aroma. On the basis of good performance with oleoresin content, the genotype Regodi may be considered as the most suitable for quality aspects.
