The experiment was conducted with five treatments and four replications in Randomized Block Design (RBD) during Kharif season of 2016-17 at Agronomy Research Farm, N.D. University of Agriculture and Technology, Kumarganj, Ayodhya (U.P.). Five treatments are selected of which two treatments were supplied with 5 t/ha and 10 t/ha paddy straw mulch and other three non-mulched viz. four hand weedings alone, herbicide (metribuzin P.E.) with two hand weedings and weedy check. Among all the  five treatments maximum plant height (107.2 cm), number of leaves (9.0), number of tillers (4.71), root length (35.1cm), root weight (25.2 g), root volume (28.4 cm3), number of primary, secondary and tertiary rhizomes (6.6, 15.8 and 5.1 respectively), weight of mother, primary, secondary, tertiary rhizomes(43.2g, 174.2g, 270.1g, 14.3g respectively) and fresh rhizome yield (32.9 t/ha) observed in the treatment applying paddy straw mulch @ 10 t/ha followed by paddy straw mulch @ 5 t/ha.
