Effects of seed-ginger weight on the flowering and rhizome yield of field grown edible ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.) in Nigeria



Effects of seed-ginger weight on the flowering and rhizome yield of field grown edible ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.) in Nigeria



Tropical Science 28(3): 171-176



Increasing the seed (sett) weight (5-40 g) produced significantly more flowering and yield of edible ginger, but the sett-harvest-to-multiplication ratio was inversely affected. Ginger had 2 types of inflorescence-bearing shoot; one type had normal foliage but bore smaller inflorescences; the other carried closely appressed leaflets and larger inflorescences, and the shoots were more easily identified.
