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.
