Diverse agro-climatic regions, wide variety of soils supplemented with substantial rainfall has made the NE region a forerunner in agriculture sector. Small and marginal farmers holding maximum area of the total arable land of the NE region have chosen vegetable growing as the best alternative for their livelihood along with food grain production. In spite of immense scope for production of quality vegetables in the region, there are some constraints representing low productivity of vegetables. About 40% of the people are below the poverty line in terms of energy intake as well as socio-economic status. Low production of vegetables leads to low availability of vegetables to the rural and city dwellers. Maximum amount of vegetables thereby need to be imported from the nearby areas and other states.
