About Us

Horticulture is a significant and upcoming sector in Karnataka. Horticulture has proved to be the best diversification option for agricultural land use, because of assured and the remunerative returns to the farmers.

  • Horticultural Crops are highly remunerative.
  • The diverse agro-climatic conditions prevailing in the state are quite congenial for growing different Horticulture crops, successfully, almost throughout the year.
  • The usefulness of Horticulture has been specially felt in scanty rainfall and drought prone areas of the state, as several perennial Horticulture crops provide an effective drought proofing against the odds of the nature and assure the farmers satisfactory returns even during the years of deficit rainfall. This is the reason why Horticulture crops are fast replacing agriculture crops in dry tracts of the state.
  • Another important benefit that the farmers can avail is related to value addition of several Horticulture produce, which offers very good scope for meeting the needs of different strata of consumers.
  • With the introduction of advanced horticultural technologies, there are increased opportunities for the export of better quality horticultural products.
  • With the onset of protected cultivation and consequent high quality produce, the horizons of export have greatly been expanded, offering unlimited scope to hi-tech farmers in the state.
  • Of late, in response to the increasing awareness for nutritional security, consumption of protective foods such as fruits and vegetables has greatly increased and this has helped to hike the production process.
  • The aesthetic needs of the people are also warranting for expanding the demands for flowers and their products, resulting in an incredible boost for floriculture, be traditional or hi-tech.

With all these developments that are taking place, the Horticulture in the state has opened new vistas of hopes and bright future for the farmers of the state.
