Economics of Ginger Root Production in Hawaii

This publication examines the economics of producing ginger root (Zingiber officinale Roscoe) in Hawaii’s major ginger growing area, the eastern half of the Big Island. The economic analysis is based on a computer spreadsheet budget for managing a ginger root enterprise and uses information gathered from knowledgeable growers and packers and from research and extension faculty and publications of the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR), University of Hawaii at Manoa. The production data used in the model are typical for a small ginger root farm in the late 1990s.
