The experiment was carried out with the aim to study on the effect of different seed rate and spacing on yield of ginger. The experiment was carried out at the Horticultural Research Station, Mondouri, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, Mohanpur, Nadia, and West Bengal during the year 2013-14 and 2014-15. The variety ‘cv. Gorubathan’ was used under the study. These experiment shows that among the five different spacing (20 x 15 cm, 20 x 20 cm, 25 x 20 cm, 25 x 25 cm and 30 x 20 cm) and two seed rhizome size (20g and 30 g), increasing trend in yield per plant was observed with increase in spacing. The plants raised from the bigger seed rhizome (30 g) produced bigger clump 276.13 g. In case of interaction effect, closest spacing (20 x 15 cm) in combination with bigger seed rhizome (30 g) produced highest yield per ha of 13.95 t and 11.04 t. It was observed that maximum cost of cultivation were recorded (Rs. 104,312/-) and (Rs. 101146/-) in both the year respectively with 20x15cm spacing and 30g seed size. The benefit: cost ratio was highest in P5S1 (2.16 and2.29) followed by P4S1 (2.12 and 2.27) in the respective years.

Keywords: Ginger, Seed rate, Spacing, Yield, Economy.
