Ginger Bacterial Wilt (Ralstonia solanacearum) Management Approach in Ethiopia: A Review

Afework Legesse


Ginger is produced for its spice and medicinal properties in tropical and subtropical climates around the world. In diverse parts of the world, ginger, like most cultivated crops, is affected by biotic and abiotic variables. One of the most frequent diseases in many crops, including ginger, is bacterial wilt (Ralstonia solanacearum). This review aims to highlight key scientific findings on this economically significant ginger wilt disease in Ethiopia, as well as disease management choices, problems and future considerations. Cultural, chemical use, Biological, and Resistant Cultivars are some of the primary management approaches that can aid in the reduction of ginger bacterial wilt disease effects. However, due to the disease's novel strain creation, no one effective management plan exists. As a result, using an integrated disease management approach is the most effective, ecologically friendly, and cost-efficient option for consumers. Because there is currently no single effective control measure against the target pathogen, a well-coordinated effort is needed to design an integrated disease management program that will help to reduce disease related damage and yield loss.
