The active components of ginger are reported to stimulate digestion, absorption, relieve constipation and flatulence by increasing muscular activity in the digestive system. The experiment was conducted to assess the qualityof ginger genotypes under Soppinabetta ecosystem in Karnataka. The genotype Rio-de-Janeiro recorded maximum oleoresin and essential oil content (2.55% and 8.04% respectively) which was on par with Hummnabad Local (7.10% and 2.33%). Maximum dry ginger recovery percentage was recorded in Hummnabad Local (27.35%). The genotype Himagiri recorded maximum crude fiber content (4.87%). The study indicated that the local genotype also have the potential to perform better<em></em>following standard package of practices<em>. </em>It indicated that local cultivar Humnabad Local is well<em></em>acclimatized with the soil and climatic<em></em>conditions of the state<em>.</em>
