Special horticultural practices for vegetable crops under protected cultivation
The concept of modern horticultural technologies has widened the horizon of vegetable industry in India. Now-a-days, it is not only a question of providing enough vegetables for a balanced diet, but also to produce quality vegetables throughout the year. The present per capita availability of vegetable in India is only 210 g against the requirement of 300 g/capita/day (Saravaiya et al.). The crops grown in open conditions are often exposed to varying levels of temperature, humidity, wind flow etc., which ultimately influence the productivity as well as quality of a crop extensively. Further, with globalization of markets and global climate change, protected cultivation along with special horticultural practices emerged as the single most important technology for ensuring high productivity, improved quality and lucrative return.
