About this eBook

PREFACE India is endowed with diverse agro-climatic conditions ranging from temperate to humid and from sea level to snow line. Varied agro-climatic conditions is one of the greatest assets of Indian Agriculture which offers unique opportunities to grow nearly more than 175 vegetable crops around the year in one part of the country or the other. However, we have not been able to fully harness this vast natural opportunities so far, primarily due to lack of sufficient production technologies and unavailability of well trained human resources. In the recent past, due emphasis has been given by Government, both Central as well as State for all-round development of Horticulture The Golden Revolution, more specifically for vegetable cultivation.

This book, Production Technology of Tropical Sub Tropical Vegetable Crops is aimed at Horticulture graduates, Agriculture graduates, Extension specialists, Research workers, Faculties and others seeking information on important Tropical Sub-Tropical vegetable production. Strenuous efforts have been made to compile the information literatures from various sources including published literature, research papers, books,
