Millets have been an integral part of our diet for centuries. In addition to a plethora of health benefits, millets are also good for the environment with low water & input requirement. With the aim to create awareness and increase production & consumption of millets, United Nations, at the behest of the Government of India, declared 2023 the International Year Millets. To commemorate this,

One day Seminar on Horticulture Farming

Horticulure Farming

Horticultural products include all products, raw or processed, that arise from the horticultural industry. This broadly inclusive definition is appropriate and even necessary in a time when traceability from the producer to the ultimate consumer is of growing interest to government and industry. Products from horticultural industry that go to market still respiring (fresh produce) are clearly horticultural products. When juiced, sliced or pureed, fermented, frozen, preserved, canned, dried, irradiated, or used in an ornamental construct (such as a flower arrangement) they remain, in our view, a horticultural product. However, when a horticultural product becomes a major ingredient of another manufactured item the categorization becomes more complex. Thus, when apples are used to make apple pie or yogurt is fortified with fruit, the product can be considered both a horticultural product and a bakery or dairy product.

Horticultural Crops

But to use this definition of a horticultural product, it is necessary to know what crops are appropriately assigned to horticultural industry. It is generally accepted by researchers and educators in horticultural science that horticultural crops include:

  • tree, bush and perennial vine fruits;
  • perennial bush and tree nuts;
  • vegetables (roots, tubers, shoots, stems, leaves, fruits and flowers of edible and mainly annual plants);
  • aromatic and medicinal foliage, seeds and roots (from annual or perennial plants);
  • cut flowers, potted ornamental plants, and bedding plants (involving both annual or perennial plants); and
  • trees, shrubs, turf and ornamental grasses propagated and produced in nurseries for use in landscaping or for establishing fruit orchards or other crop production units.

Sometimes the horticultural plant is used by an animal to produce the crop. Honey is a good example and is often considered to be a horticultural product. Raw silk is produced by silkworms feeding on mulberry trees (which also produce an edible fruit) but silk is not a horticultural crop. In Canada both honey and maple syrup are classed as horticultural crops. Cultivated or gathered mushrooms (edible fungi) are most often classed as horticultural crops.

2 Days On Campus Training Program

Farmers Training

The Krishi Vigyan Kendra ( "KVK" -  "Farm Science Centre" )  was established in  2005. During the last seven years farmers, farm women, rural youths of the Mehsana district have derived  problem oriented training and ultimately in their entrepreneurship a lot of benefits form the services it has rendered.

"Mehsana" (Mahesana) district is famous for white revolution (Milk Production) and  Asian’s no.1  APMC (Unjha) which clearly indicate  that the district mainly depends  on agriculture  and animal husbandry. thus, KVK become most important institute of the district. There is a prime need to evolve healthy synthesis between Indian’s ancient wisdom and modern Science of Agriculture, to revolve sound Indian economy. It is time taking process but that now is centre’s main objective.North Gujarat in which the centre is located is rich in tradition of Agriculture Practices.  So the centre is now busy in fulfilling the said purpose.

Host Institute is providing the basic facility to KVK help them to achive target and I wishing that Our KVK will put farming community in their success.
