Description of Encyclopedia of Horticulture and Allied Terms

Agriculture gave the primitive man a settled life on earth towards the growth and development of civilization. The search for food with the creation of green life slowly made him satisfied, rational and social. Horticulture initially started as aesthetic agriculture in a confined garden, slowly changing its stand towards high-value high return crops per unit area, time and input with the ultimate aim for food and nutrition security of the ever-increasing population of the entire globe particularly in the developing countries. 

India is no exception to this pragmatic trend to assimilate and welcome horticulture in her vision and mission. Harnessing the compelling strength in biodiversity, India is on its way to becoming the global hub for fresh horticultural produce outsourcing with diverse agro-climatic zones, and a wealth of native knowledge contributing to the sector's development. Our country also shares a warm relationship with several gross importers of horticultural produce.
