Abstract:
The experiment was conducted to assess yield and economics of ginger (<em>Zingiberofficinale</em>Rosc.)cultivation under Soppinabetta ecosystem of Karnataka. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design (RBD) fashion with 16 treatments replicated twice. The investigation indicated that the Humanabad Local was the most promising genotype in terms of yield and economics. It has recorded highest yield per plant (360.20g), yield per plot (8.08kg)and fresh rhizome yield per hectare (21.55 ton) which was on par with IISR-Mahima. Genotype Humnabad Local also recorded maximum dry recovery (27.35%) which was on par with IISR- Mahima (25.10%), Rio-de-Janeiro (24.80%) and Karkala Local (24.03%).Highest cost-benefit ratio was recorded in genotype Humnabad Local (Rs.4.918) and the least cost-benefit ratio was recorded in genotype Jorhat-1 (Rs.2.407). Higher cost-benefit ratio is attributed to the increase in fresh rhizome yield of the genotype
