PREFACE
India has a well known reputation as a land of spices from time immemorial. Once considered a luxury, spices have today become an integral part of the daily diet. India is endowed with a diverse climate ranging from tropical to temperate that it is possible to grow an array of spice crops in one or other parts of our country. India is the largest producer, consumer and exporter of spice and spice products in the world and produces more than 50 spices. Research on spice crops has been in progress in different parts of the country over the past century. The technology for intensifying production of these spices has been slowly built over the past few decades. Commercial cultivation has gained importance and lot of interest is being evinced in the cultivation of spices in several parts of the country. To meet the growing demand for human resources in Horticulture and allied fields, many state agricultural universities offer specialized undergraduate, post graduate and doctoral programmes. In many conventional universities also, spice crops have been included in the curriculam of Botany programmes. In this context, these students need a basic book on spices for ready reference. Since many farmers lack knowledge in the scientific production of spices, this book will also be helpful for their systematic cultivation. An attempt has therefore been made to consolidate the available information on the scientific cultivation of the commercially important as well as minor spice crops in this book. This book will
be useful as a ready reckoner for the students, teachers, extension workers and literate farmers. Department of Horticulture Faculty of Agriculture Annamalai University November 3, 2012.
