Abstract: Medicinal value of ginger is well known. It has an extensive use as a spice to improve the taste in most of the Indian foods. The productivity of ginger is very low due to infertile soil of the area and unawareness of farmers regarding appropriate use of fertilizers. The present study was undertaken in the form of on farm testing in the Shahdol district of Madhya Pradesh. There were four replications having plot size of 3x2 m2. The treatment comprised of five sources of nutrient application. The result of the study revealed that the highest plant height (90cm) and maximum number of shoots (12.3 per plant) were recorded when 10t/ha vermi compost was applied.
