Abstract

A survey was undertaken to study the prospects of protected vegetable cultivation technologies in Punjab covering six
districts viz. Amritsar, Gurdaspur, Sangrur, Moga, Jalandhar and Kapurthala. From these districts a total of 150
respondents were selected for the purpose of study by probability proportion of protected vegetable cultivation growers in
the selected districts. Data were collected by personal interview method. The prospects and satisfaction of the protected
vegetable growers were studied. Questions were asked from the farmers regarding the prospects of protected vegetable
cultivation. The results reveal that protected cultivation of vegetable gained importance since 2009 in Punjab because
majority of respondents adopt this technique during 2009-2013. The data further showed that 34.48 per cent of
respondents were willing to increase the area under protected vegetable cultivation due to profitable enterprise. While
maximum number of respondents (45.98%) wanted to keep the area constant under protected vegetable cultivation
technologies due to non availability of land to increase the area and unable to handle protected structures on more area.
Majority of respondents preferred poly house followed by net house for cultivation of vegetables and maximum number
of respondents were satisfied from this technology. It may be concluded that it is a profitable enterprise for farmers due to
off season production and high yield so maximum number of respondents were willing to keep the area constant or
increase the area under protected structures for vegetable cultivation.
