Description: May be subject to a natural loss in weight due to loss of moisture content, or to chafing and consequent seepage from containers. The extent of any such loss will be dependent upon the condition of the roots at the time of shipment, the nature of the voyage and handling, storage and stowage. Loss may be enhanced by poor packing. Due to roots being prone to loss of weight they are often sold on the basis of the arrived weight. This is particularly applicable to dry ginger. If not properly dried before shipment, some roots may develop mold growth. Roots are also subject to infestation and are affected by humidity. If roots should become badly wetted during transit they may rot. This, however, is not always the case, and certain roots, after being cleaned, dried and scraped to remove mold or foreign matter, may have a good market value.
