Horticulture sector has a lot of potential in this district. Due to naturally gifted agro climatic conditions, at various elevations there is a lot of scope for cultivation of various types of fruits, vegetables, spices etc. This sector is of prime importance if seen in the con

text of prevailing “money order economy” of the region i.e. it can improve the socio-economic status of hard workingwomen folk of the region. There is tremendous potential for growing off- seasonal vegetables at various altitudes both under rain fed and irrigated Conditions. The resources of horticulture development are available in the different hilly tarain in tropical and sub-tropical conditions. But due to lack of hi-tech facilities the productivity is less than the national average. The “Horticulture programmes” can upgrade the economy of the hill people and can also provide the best alternative to traditional farming. To strengthen the economic status of the farmers affected from the drought and to provide self-employment adopting advanced horticultural techniques is essential. Through this programme, quality-planting material will be provided to farmers with hi-tech facilities from horticulture department of Himanchal Pradesh Govt. as well as Uttaranchal Tarai Seed and Development Corporation.
