About this book

This book deals with area, production and productivity of horticulture crops. Horticulture is the cultivation of garden plants, fruits, vegetables, flowers and shrubs. Horticulturists work for plant propagation, crop production, plant breeding, genetic engineering, plant biochemistry, plant physiology, storage, processing and transportation. They work for better crop yield, quality, nutritional value and resistance to insects, diseases and environmental pollution. In India, farmers are having small quantity of land and less money. They cannot invest large amount on agriculture. So, they shifted from agriculture to horticulture.
