Rs: Indian Rupees, B.C.: Benefit: Cost ratio

An investigation to determine the fertilizer requirement of ginger under varying shade intensity using ginger cv. Rio de Janeiro was laid out in strip plot design with four shade levels (0, 25, 50, and 75 percent) and four fertilizer levels (75, 100, 125, and 150 percent of the recommended dose of 75:50:50 N, P2O5, and K2O/ha) and was replicated five times. Under open conditions, a significant increase in the dry ginger yield was obtained, up to 125 percent, and the highest profit was also realized from this treatment. The growth and yield of ginger were highest under 25 percent shade. The response to fertilizer treatments in terms of growth characters and yield were highest under this shade level. A significant increase in green and dry ginger yield was obtained with each increment of fertilizer dose up to the highest level (Jayachandran et al., 1991).
