The Effect of Soil Physico-chemical Properties on Rhizome Rot and Wilt Disease Complex Incidence of Ginger Under Hill Agro-climatic Region of West Bengal
B. R. Sharma, S. Dutta, S. Roy, A. Debnath, M. De Roy
A study was conducted to find out the relationship of physico-chemical properties (viz. organic carbon(OC), pH, electrical conductivity, nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium content) of ginger growing soil with incidence percentage of rhizome rot and wilt disease complex of ginger. Organic carbon content and pH of the ginger soil contributed significantly (93%) in the prediction of ginger rhizome rot and wilt disease complex incidence with negative correlation. Soil having weak acidic reaction with OC percent greater than 2.25 was observed to have the lower average incidence of the disease.
Key Words: ginger, rhizome rot and wilt disease, soil physico-chemical properties
