Abstract:
The experiment was conducted to find out the effect of three different tillage practices such as zero (dibbling), furrow and conventional (spading) and mulching (mulch, no mulch) on the growth and yield of ginger. Tillage practices and mulching showed significant influence on the growth, yield and yield components of ginger. The highest yield (18.75 t/ha) was recorded from zero tillage which was significantly different from other tillage practices. Significantly higher yield (17.87 t/ha) was obtained from the mulched plants than that of unmulched plants (11.85 t/ha). In case of, combined effect, the most satisfactory yield (22.36 t/ha) was found in the zero tillage with mulch while the lowest yield (9.41 t/ha) was in conventional tillage with no mulch.
