Extensive cultivation of ginger for years caused ecological environment worse off and ginger productivity decrease due to wilt diseases, which also happens in nearly all crops in continuous cropping, especially in Ralstoniasolanacearum caused wilt farmlands. In the present mini-review, based on analysis of Ralstoniasolanacearum species complex (RSSC) host plant phylogeny and RSSC control factors, an organic ecological method to combat the wilt is proposed that is expected to guarantee continuous cropping of ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.) achieving double harvest in economy and environment.
