Soft rot is also called rhizome rot or Pythium rot. Butler (1907) recorded the incidence of this disease for the first time from Surat (Gujarat) in India. The disease is prevalent in India, Japan, China, Nigeria, Fiji, Taiwan, Australia, Hawaii, Sri Lanka, and Korea. Nepali et al. (2000) reported the severity of rhizome rot in Nepal and found that the losses due to this disease were 25 and 24 percent in the field and storage, respectively. Distribution of Pythium species causing soft rot of ginger is shown in Table 8.1.
