In India, agriculture is the most important economic sector (Sucheta, 2019). It ensures food and income stability. Different types of soil and climate in India, which spans numerous agro-ecological areas, allow for the cultivation of a wide range of horticultural crops. According to a United Nations research on global population trends, India would surpass China as the world's most populous country by 2020. The grape (Vitis vinifera) is thought to have originated in Armenia from the regions south of the Black and Capsian seas in Russia, and then moved west and east to temperate and tropical locations. The research was carried out in the Nashik district. Twenty-four villages were chosen at random. A total of 240 farmers were chosen from each community, with ten grape growers chosen from each village. The information was gathered through personal interviews. Pesticide overuse and indiscriminate application have resulted in residue problems in fruits, which is a major concern in most nations, including India. Pesticides' effects on human life, wild life, aquatic life, and environmental change have recently received a lot of attention. Some grape growers reported that the main impediments to grape export were the difficulty in meeting export criteria, as well as lengthy procedures and formalities for export. Other minor issues were a lack of understanding of the export procedure, the absence of updated export market information, the shortage of refrigerated vans, and the lack of exportable varieties.
