Growth Influencers

Robust increase in population and food demand.

Rising entrepreneurship under horticulture due to government intervention.


Diverse agro-climatic conditions in India ensure the production of all types of fresh fruits, vegetables and medicinal plants.

Horticulture crops perform a vital role in the Indian economy by generating employment, providing raw material to various food processing industries, and higher farm profitability due to higher production and export earnings from foreign exchange.

The comparative production per unit area of horticultural crops is higher than field crops.

Such crops are of high value, labour intensive and generate employment throughout the year. It has gained prominence over contributing a growing share in Gross Value Addition of agriculture.

They have national and international demand and are a good source of foreign exchange.

It is imperative to cater to the country’s estimated demand of 650 MT of fruits and vegetables by the year 2050.

These crops account for 37 per cent of the total exports of agricultural commodities from India.

During the year 2019-20, the country recorded its highest ever horticulture production of 320.77 million tonnes from an area of 25.66 million hectares.


Faces high post-harvest loss and gaps in post-harvest management due to less or limited input by machinery and equipment.

Lack of supply chain infrastructures like cold storage and well-connected transport networks.

Difficulties in setting up due to higher input costs and limited availability of market intelligence, mainly for exports.
