This book is the first comprehensive monograph on ginger, which has been valued as a spice and medicinal plant from ancient times both in India and in China.

The present volume covers all aspects of ginger: botany, crop improvement, chemistry, biotechnology, production technology in the major producing countries, diseases, pests, harvesting, processing, products, economics and marketing, pharmacology, medicinal uses, and uses as a spice and flavoring. Experts in genetic resources conservation, botany, breeding, and biotechnology of ginger give an in-depth analysis of these important topics.
