Aeroponic cultivation of ginger (Zingiber officinale) rhizomes


Aeroponic cultivation of ginger (Zingiber officinale) rhizomes



Acta Horticulturae 659: 397-402



ISSN/ISBN: 0567-7572

Ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.) rhizomes are popular as a spice and an herbal dietary supplement. The anti-inflammatory and anti-nausea qualities of ginger have applications in the pharmaceutical industry. Conventionally grown as a tropical field crop, ginger is plagued by soil-borne disease and nematode problems. Aeroponic cultivation of ginger can provide high-quality rhizomes that are free from pesticides and nematodes and can be produced in mild-winter greenhouses.
