Ginger yield per acre and farm profit

Due to easy growing conditions, this precious crop is not only grown by farmers but also by ordinary people in their garden backyard. This post will help you to figure out the profit margin and expected yield in 1 acre along with other practices. 

Quick overview – Ginger per acre yield is 6000 kg (6 tonns) to 10,000 kg (10 tonns), seed rate is 600 to 750 kg per acre and estimated farm income is Rs 1,30,000 in 5 to 8 months.

Ginger is one of the most demanding crops due to its use in vital regions including kitchens, medical sectors, the perfume industry and the oil industry.

Ginger yield per acre and farm profit

Ginger yield per acre and per hectare

By sowing 600 to 750 kg seeds around 6 to 10 tonnes of ginger yield can be achieved in 1 acre. 

The yield of ginger per hectare – With the seed rate of 1500 to 1800 kg in a hectare 15 tonns to 25 tonns of yield can be achieved.

Ginger farming profit income in 1 acre

Farmers are obtaining 6000 to 1000 kg of gingers in 1 acre by sowing 600 to 750 kg of seeds. In India 1 kg ginger price varies between Rs 35, Rs 50, Rs 55, Rs 60, Rs 80, Rs 100, Rs 150 Rs 250 or more depending on the season, variety and availability in the region. Let’s take the minimum average price of Rs 42 per kg. If 6 tonnes i.e. 6000 kg yield is obtained in 1 acre then to calculate the profit simply multiply Rs 42 x 6000 kg = Rs 2,52,000.

Assuming the approx cost of Rs 1,22,000 then after deducting the cost you will get a net profit of Rs 1,30,000. This is a decent amount which can be achieved within 8 months by following the good practices given above. You can view a complete in-depth project report here

Seed spacing 

The treated seedlings should be placed with a spacing of 20-25 cm along and in between the rows. They are covered with well-decomposed FYM and a thin soil layer. 


10 to 12 tonnes per acre of decomposed cow dung, cattle manure or compost is applied at planting time. Neem cake application is helpful to reduce rot disease and is recommended to use it in intervals. Apply NPK in the ratio of 200:75:100. If the soil is deficient in zink micronutrients then you can add 2 kg of zinc in one acre for high yield.

Growing zone in India

Tips to get better yield

Cow dung – People often practice a small mistake which is actually a big mistake. They use fresh cow dung instead of rotted old dung. Some people are confused and think that fresh cow dung will work well but they don’t know it will damage their crop. It is recommended to always use rotted dung and if you can arrange 2 years old rotted cow dung it will definitely increase the ginger yield quality. This type of rotted cow dung should be used for every crop.
