I just discovered lots of curl grubs in ginger roots when I replanted them because they are not going well. Is there any method to prevent curl grubs? Neem oil works but is not suitable for edible plants.

Neem can definitely be used on edibles and is widely used in organic farming. You can get eco neem as well.

Neem oil should help. They don't like water, keep garden or lawns moist.

Use Condy's crystals. Something like tea spoon in 1-2l of water.
