Planting Methods

Flat planting
Ridge and furrow
  • In flat planting, generally furrows of 5-7 cm depth are opened with wheel hoe and rhizomes are placed horizontally and covered with soil.

  • Ridge and furrow method of planting is preferable over flat planting as the ridges protect the rhizomes from water stagnation and the furrows act as micro-drainage channels during peak rainfall and also conserves moisture during dry periods.
