Ginger Yields Better with High Beneficial Soil Microbe Populations

Use products like Actinovate, Contans, and Trichoderma to build these populations in a soil that is not robust in beneficial micro organisms.  These supplements are also helpful when growing ginger in containers with soiless media.

Adding compost and compost tea to your ginger helps boost soil microbial activity, too. Worm castings have also been found to aid in ginger production!

These beneficial bacteria and beneficial fungi help ginger take up more nutrients; an important feature that boosts yields in your ginger harvest!  These supplements are a very good investment, along with proper nutrition, to ensure a bountiful return.

2012 Season Note: The siginificant heat we experienced in 2012 taught us that ginger grown in soil or media that has a healhty population of soil microbial activity fares better against the stresses of heat than soil/media with no inoculation of beneficial microbes.

2013 Season Note: The cloudy, rainy season we experienced on the east coast taught us that microbial activity is crucial to helping yields when soils are too moist. The benefial microbes help keep soil pathogens to minimum during a period of high moisture.
