About this book

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. It is now used universally in traditional medicine as well as in modern medicine for the treatment of nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy and for the prevention of motion sickness. 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.
