Abstract: India is a major producer and consumer of ginger, accounting for about 21 per cent of the global production, followed by China, Nepal and Indonesia. In India it is growing on an area of 1.42 lakh hectares with production 7, 63,000 tonne (Anonymous, 2016). The study was conducted in Shivamogga district of Karnataka State during the year 2016-17. Ex-post facto design was decided to be used for the present study. The total sample size of respondents is 120. Majority of the respondents (74.16 %) belonged to medium category of technology gap followed by 16.67 per cent of the respondents belonged low category of technology gap and 9.17 per cent of the respondents belonged to high technology gap category. Regarding Land preparation, cent per cent of the ginger growers had adopted recommended practice of size of bed for planting rhizomes and filling material used in bed, suitable soil for ginger crop and 6.67% of technological gap was observed regarding ploughing of the land. it was revealed that there was no technological gap found regarding correct time of planting Rhizomes, spacing, seed treatment, and the least gap was found in rhizome weight(0.83%)and there was 100.00 per cent technological gap regarding the quantity of rhizomes used per acre. In case of irrigation and weeding, higher technological gap (99.20%) was found. There was a least (0.83%) technological gap found regarding the use of control measures for the major pest shoot borer.
