About The Book

India with diverse soil and climate comprising several agro-ecological regions provides ample opportunity to grow a variety of horticulture crops. Horticulture is an inseparable segment and important crop diversification option in context of Indian agriculture. In any country, there is strong correlation between agricultural growth and economic prosperity. It is estimated that all the horticulture crops put together cover nearly 24.2 million hectares area with an annual production of 277.3 million tonnes. Though these crops occupy hardly 13% of the cropped area, they contribute over 29% to the gross agricultural output in the country and 37% of export of the agricultural commodity. They play an important role in ensuring food security, generating income thus elevating the standard of living of Indian farmers.
