    National Horticulture Board (NHB)
    Coconut Development Board (CDB).
    Central Institute of Horticulture (CIH), Nagaland

    Challenges

    Horticulture does not enjoy a safety net like the Minimum Support Price (MSP) for foodgrains.
    Lack of good cold chain storage and transport networks to extend the life of perishable products.
    Very less or limited input by machinery and equipment so it is tough to minimise the time restraints.
    Higher input costs than foodgrains make it a difficult set up, especially when there is no support from the local governments to the smaller farmers.
    It gets challenging for marginal farmers to cope with the high price fluctuations.
    Limited availability of market intelligence, mainly for exports makes it a tougher option to choose.

    Way Forward

    The diversification in the agricultural sector mainly of the horticulture sector has become a major source of positive growth for the sector itself and for the nation.
    It has emerged as a promising source of income acceleration, employment generation, poverty alleviation and export promotion.
    India can emerge as a far bigger producer and exporter if sufficient emphasis is given to resource allocation, infrastructure development, more R&D, technological upgradation and better policy framework for horticulture sector.
    Horticulture sector with strong forward and backward linkages as an organised industry can stimulate and sustain growth.
