How to Harvest
The size of the ginger seed, named as rhizome, is necessary to the production of ginger. The larger the rhizome piece, the faster ginger will be produced and therefore the faster it will be sold onto the market. Prior to planting the seed rhizomes, farmers are needed to treat the seeds to prevent seed-borne pathogens and pests, rhizome rot and other seed-borne diseases. There are various ways farmers do seed treatment.
Planting the irrigated ginger is commonly drained in the months between March and June as those months’ account for the commencing of the monsoon, or rainy and season. Once the planting stage is done, farmers go on to mulch the crop to “conserve moisture and check weed growth”, in addition as check surface run-off to conserve soil. Mulching is completed by applying mulch to the plant beds directly after planting. So after mulching comes hulling break the firmness of the soil from rain, and conserve soil moisture.
Farmers must irrigate their ginger crops every two weeks at the least between September and November (when the monsoon is over) to ensure maximum yield and high-quality product. The final farming stage for ginger is the harvesting stage and for items such as vegetable, soda, and candy, harvesting should be done between four and five months of planting, whereas when the rhizome is planted for products such as dried ginger or ginger oil, harvesting must be done eight to ten months after planting.
