Author(s): Charu Singh, Dr. Prabha Rani and Dr. Kishore Kumar
Abstract: Agriculture is the dominant sector of the Indian Economy. Horticulture has emerged as an indispensable part of agriculture, offering a wide range of choices to the farmers for crop diversification and much needed nutrition to the people. The term ‘Horticulture’ is derived from the Latin words ‘Hortus’ means garden and ‘culture’ means cultivation. It also provides ample opportunities for sustaining a large number of agro-industries which generate substantial employment opportunities. The objective of the paper is to analyze the Issues, Challenges, and Scope of Supply Chain Management in Fruits and Vegetables in India. The trend analysis reveals wide variation in the growth performance of fruits and vegetables across states. The productivity growth at all India level is low, which needs to be addressed. The major concerns of the sector are improving the productivity through research and development, enhancing the share of value-added products, geographical diversification of exports and enhancing the infrastructure including cold storage and rural roads.
