Abstract

India has maintained its second rank in the global production of fruits and vegetables, next only to China. Though the production of food grains and Horticultural produce are not meaningfully comparable due to fundamental differences in the nature of their farming, characteristics of produce, nature of land requirements, and most importantly, their nutritional purpose and value, it has come to light that horticultural farming is more productive and gainful. The special attention given to the sector, especially after the introduction of
the Horticulture Mission for North East and Himalayan States (HMNEH) and the National Horticulture Mission (NHM) in the 11th Plan, has resulted in bumper production of horticulture produce in India and Northeast region.
