Ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.) in South Eastern Nigeria. II. The field response of the uncoated ginger Yatsun-biri for rapid seed ginger production



Journal of Spices and Aromatic Crops 3(1): 1-5



The Nigerian ginger cultivar, Yatsun-biri, is used in perfumery and as a spice. Ginger sets (3, 5, 7 or 9 g) were planted in rows 20 cm apart, with in-row spacing of 10, 15 or 20 cm, at 2 locations (Umudike and Bori) in Nigeria in 1988 and 1989. In both years, the yield of ginger decreased with increasing with-in row spacing, but the yield increased with increasing set weight, due to reduced sprouting and survival of smaller sets.
