Soft Rot in Ginger caused by Pythium spp. belonging to the kingdom Stramenopila and phyllum Oomycota are of most concern because various species can cause rotting and yield loss on ginger at any of the growth stages including during postharvest storage. The bases of the aerial shoots become soft watery and then rot. The affected plants become pale, the tips of the leaves turn yellow followed by complete yellowing and drying up of the leaves. The present investigaton showed that the biofumigation  treatment has been given, only 8.33 % disease infestation with  155.61 q/ha of yield.

Key words: Biofumigation, Ginger, Pythium, Soft rot etc.
