Ginger (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) is grown in tropical and subtropical regions of the world for its spice and medicinal values. The emergence and early growth of ginger is inherently slow and weed growth can impact on yield. It has slow initial growth rate and shallow root system. As a result, it is invaded by a variety of weeds. A field experiment was carried out during 2015-16 and 2016-17 in randomized block design with three replications under AICRP on Weed Management at College of Horticulture and Forestry, CAU, Pasighat, Arunachal Pradesh, India with nine treatments. The experiment was conducted to identify an alternative to suppress weeds, enhance yield and income of small ginger farmers. Results showed that hand weeding twice recorded lowest weed density, dry weight of weeds, highest weed control efficiency, fresh rhizome yield (9.4 and 9.8 t/ha) and B:C ratio (1.7 and 2.0) during both the years. Among herbicidal weed control, integration of one hand weeding followed by mulching with pendimethaline @ 1.50 kg ai/ha and/ or oxyfluorfen @ 0.20 kg ai/ha proved effective in controlling weeds with higher fresh rhizome yield and BCR.

Keywords: Integrated weed management, Mulch, Pendimethalin, Oxyfluorfen, Glyphosate, Ginger, Yield.
