    Hello Sir

    Selection of Planting Material:

    1) Select healthy rhizomes free from diseases (rhizome rot and leaf spot) and pests (rhizome fly).
    2) Sprouted rhizomes are broken into pieces keeping 2-3 sprouted eye buds on each rhizome.
    3) Each piece should be 2.5-5 cm long and 20-25 g in weight.
    Ginger can be planted from start of May up to middle of June.2nd forth night of May is found to be the best time for planting of ginger.
