Abstract:
A field trial was conducted at the Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Raisen, Madhya Pradesh for two consecutive years during 2016-2017 &amp; 2017-2018 to determine the influence of different mulch materials on vegetative growth and yield of ginger (<em>Zingiber officinale </em>Rosc.) under drip irrigation system. The research trials for the consecutive two years showed that plastic mulch resulted significantly higher in plant height, No. of tillers clump<sup>-1</sup>, Number of leaves clump<sup>-1</sup>, No. of primary rhizomes, Length of primary rhizome (cm), Diameter of primary rhizome (cm), Number of secondary rhizome, Length of secondary rhizome (cm), Diameter of secondary rhizome (cm), Rhizome yield plant<sup>-1</sup> (g) and Rhizome yield (t) ha<sup>-1</sup>,whereas days to maturity were lower in the treatment of control. The highest yield plant<sup>-1</sup> and ha<sup>-1</sup> was observed under the treatment of plastic mulch (434.13 gm plant<sup>-1</sup> &amp; 34.730 t ha<sup>-1</sup>) with 124.20% increase in yield as compared to control without mulch (193.80 gm plant<sup>-1</sup> &amp; 15.49 t ha<sup>-1</sup>). Followed by yield plant<sup>-1</sup> and yield ha<sup>-1</sup> were observed under the treatment of <em>Butea monosperma</em> and Paddy<sub> </sub>straw almost at par for both treatment (293.53 gm plant <sup>-1</sup>, 23.480 t ha<sup>-1</sup> &amp; 272.617 gm plant<sup>-1</sup>, 21.807 t ha<sup>-1</sup>, respectively).
