ABSTRACT

A field trial was conducted at the Horticultural Research Station, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, Pedong, Darjeeling, West

Bengal for two consecutive years to study the effect of mulching on growth and yield of ginger (Zingiber officinale Rose). The beds of

ginger cv. gorubathan was covered with four different mulching materials viz. wheat straw, ulu-grass and dry leaves @ 5.0 tones per

hectare and black polyethylene sheet @ 2.0 quintal per hectare immediately after planting of seed rhizomes, along with a control plot.

Among the different mulching materials, dry leaves showed maximum height (78.05 cm), number of pseudostem per clump (4.26),

leaves per clump (62.65) and highest yield (52.17 t/ha) with an increase in yield by 12.92 t/ha over control followed by wheat straw

and ulu-grass.

Key Words: Mulching, rhizome and ginger.

ulu-grass, dry leaves @ 5 tonnes per hactare and black
