Now let us consider the next segment.

FARMING GINGER - The Production Segment

The following conditions are very necessary preparatory steps for a good ginger farming business.

Mulched fertile soil. Loam is the most preferred soil type

Ridges should be made for the planting of the crop

A minimum annual rainfall of about 1500mm is needed.

An average daily temperature of about 30°C should be maintained.

Viable ginger rhizomes with buds must be used

Good drainage to prevent water logging/flooding.

Ginger is cultivated vegetatively from its rhizomes. The vegetative propagation of ginger involves the following steps:

Sett preparation: When the fingers of rhizomes to be propagated begin to develop buds, they are cut into smaller pieces called SETT. A sett is about 3 cm in length with each sett having at least a bud. The sett to be propagated is usually stored until signs of growing are noticed before planting is performed.

Ginger soil

Ginger plants need acidic soil for better and healthy growing. It is also necessary for rhizome production. Do not forget that ginger requires the soil pH at 5.5 – 6 Level. Do not expect much from the ginger if your soil is above or below these limits. If the pH level is too high – you can lower it with a composted manure. If the pH level is too high – you can increase it with the calcium carbonate mix. Ginger plants also like clean and fertile soil. Do not forget to clean soil from parasites, fungus or pests if you want to get maximum use of ginger.

Why do you need rich and fertile soil for ginger? Only this type of soil can help ginger with nutrients. Therefore, you would not need to pay additional money for amendments and fertilisers. If the soil is not the first class quality, then stick to a regular fertilisation of ginger plants. Do not forget about the calcium amendment in this case or your ginger plants will suffer tip rot. Do not fertilise ginger before a rainstorm. Rainwater takes away all your fertilisers and supplements from the soil.

Planting: Ginger is planted by burying each sett in a hole about 8cm deep with the bud of each sett pointing upwards in the soil. The sett should be spaced 30×30cm apart. Each sett grows into a new ginger plant. Planting should be performed about a month before the rains come. The planting rate is 2500 kg per hectare.

Ginger can grow perfectly in the ground, raised beds or containers. Always mulch ginger plants which grow directly in the ground. Mulch is a good way for soil to keep moisture. If you want healthy rhizomes, then try to reduce water on the ground. Still, do not forget that soil should remain moist.

Fertiliser: Both organic and inorganic fertilisers can be used. Compost manure is preferable. The preferred fertiliser in Nigeria for ginger growing is the N.P.K 15:15:15 which is applied twice; first about twenty days after planting at a rate of 4 bags per hectare. The second application is about 40 days after the first application at the rate of 2 bags per hectare. Urea is used during the second fertiliser application.

Weed control: Controlling weed growth in the ginger farm can be done manually by hand picking or by using chemicals (herbicides). Ensure you use the right type and of the right mixture.

Pest and disease control: Mites, shoot borers and leaf rollers are some major pests that usually attack ginger plant. These pests can be controlled by using pesticides and insecticides. Captan is used to control some diseases that affect ginger plant like leaf spot.

Harvesting: On the average, ginger takes about nine months from the time of planting to mature. The rhizome can be harvested at different times depending on its purpose. If fresh ginger is required, it is harvested about six month after planting. If a matured ginger rhizome is required, it is harvested nine months after planting. Sometimes the rhizomes are left in the ground for nearly two years for propagation to continue. In Nigeria, harvesting begins in October and runs all through to May. Ginger rhizome can be harvested manually by hand or with machines such as the mechanical digger. The expected yield is 20 tons per hectare

Processing: The activities involved in processing ginger depend on the end product required. When the harvested rhizome is washed with boiling water and dried later, the product is called dried ginger and this can be grinded to produce ginger powder  or can be used as a full dried ginger rhizome. The rhizome can also be processed as fresh ginger or be peeled.
