Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted to assess the yield and quality of ginger treated with different combinations of organic and inorganic nutrition. Among the different treatments, maximum number of rhizome per clump (16.64), girth of fingers (2.34 cm), length of fingers (10.20 cm) and clump length (21.25 cm) were observed in plants raised with Vermicompost + NPK 75% + Azospirillum + VAM + PSB (T5). This combination also produced the highest essential oil (1.57%) and oleoresin content (5.34%). However, the recovery of dry ginger was maximum (21.96 %) in T1 (Compost + NPK 100% + Azospirillum + VAM + PSB) which was at par with T7 (Neemcake + NPK 100% + Azospirillum + VAM + PSB) and T4 (Vermicompost + NPK 100% + Azospirillum + VAM + PSB) with a recovery percentage of 21.95 and 21.94 per cent respectively. The highest yield/clump (162.23 g) was from the plants raised with Vermicompost + NPK 75% + Azospirillum + VAM + PSB (T5) followed by T8 - Neemcake + NPK 75% + Azospirillum + VAM + PSB (159.95 g). From Benefit : cost ratio point of view, the best treatment was observed in T5 - Vermicompost + NPK 75% + Azospirillum + VAM + PSB (4.09) followed by T4 - Vermicompost + NPK 100% + Azospirillum + VAM + PSB (3.83), clearly indicating the chance of saving 25 per cent inorganic fertilizers.
