Propagation

Propagation is mainly through  slips; North Indian types can be propagated through seeds also.

Slips separated from clumps of previous crops with rhizome portion intact having 15-20 cm of aerial portion is used. 
Slips thus obtained should be kept moist and stored in shade.
Dry leaves are removed from slips to avoid chances of spread of diseases.
About 40,000 slips are required for planting one acre.
