Abstract:

A field trial was conducted at the Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Raisen, Madhya Pradesh for two consecutive years during 2016-2017 & 2017-2018 to determine the influence of different mulch materials on vegetative growth and yield of ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.) under drip irrigation system. The research trials for the consecutive two years showed that plastic mulch resulted significantly higher in plant height, No. of tillers clump-1, Number of leaves clump-1, No. of primary rhizomes, Length of primary rhizome (cm), Diameter of primary rhizome (cm), Number of secondary rhizome, Length of secondary rhizome (cm), Diameter of secondary rhizome (cm), Rhizome yield plant-1 (g) and Rhizome yield (t) ha-1, whereas days to maturity were lower in the treatment of control. The highest yield plant-1 and ha-1 was observed under the treatment of plastic mulch (434.13 gm plant-1 and 34.730 t ha-1) with 124.20% increase in yield as compared to control without mulch (193.80 gm plant-1 and 15.49 t ha-1). Followed by yield plant-1 and yield ha-1 were observed under the treatment of Butea monosperma and Paddy straw almost at par for both treatment (293.53 gm plant-1, 23.480 t ha-1 and 272.617 gm plant-1, 21.807 t ha-1, respectively).
