Abstract views: 95 / PDF downloads: 145
The actual problem of low productivity of vegetables in Arunachal Pradesh has been attributed to the extremes of rainfall (2,500 mm) and 142 rainy days, which prohibits year-round vegetable cultivation at large scale. This difficulty is also an opportunity of growing vegetable crops in protected cultivation and the area under protected cultivation is growing larger day-by-day and now farmers can cultivate in off-season with the induction of an artificial technique like low-cost plastic rain-shelter and poly-tunnel.
