Three sizes of seed rhizomes (5, 10 and 15 g) of ginger cultivars Kuruppampady, Maran, Nedumangadu and Rio de Janeiro were planted in the open, or as an intercrop in a 30-year-old coconut plantation, at Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India. The crop was harvested 8 months after planting, when volatile oil, non-volatile ether extract (NVEE), crude fibre and starch contents were analysed. Volatile oil and starch contents were not significantly influenced by rhizome size.
