About this eBook

Preface The Indians are mainly vegetarian. India today has earmarked its vegetable production just to surpass any other country of the world. At present in India vegetables are grown in five million hectares of land and the production rises to 50 million tonnes per annum. India is the second largest country in the production of vegetable, still the per capita consumption is comperatively small. Hence more production is needed to cope with the demand. The garden-fresh vegetables are more crisp and tasty than those which are sold by the green grocers. The fresh vegetables have more vitamins. Therefore, every house owner should have a kitchen garden to get fresh vegetable. Growing vegetable in home gardens has a special charm with a joy of creation. Generally, the housewives are more interested in kitchen gardening. The attraction of the fresh vegetables from one s own garden excites interest in gardening. Growing vegetable is comparatively easy. It takes less time than growing cereals. In the context of these aspects, vegetable growing should be increased to replace cereal in our dietary to some extent. Many people take to growing vegetables in view of more financial gain. The present book will provide up to date knowledge and will develop interest in general public for growing vegetable.
I am grateful to those who have extended their help in preparing the manuscript especially with the photographs. If the readers find it useful, the efforts of all who are involved in bringing out the book will be fruitful.
