India: Floriculture making strides in Nagaland

According to the Nagaland State Human Development Report 2016, during the last few years, the floriculture sector has made tremendous strides in terms of coverage area and production through support provided by the State Government. Provision and installation of hi-tech structure, inputs in terms of seeds and extension services, post harvest handling and provision of market linkages for the commercial farmers have boosted floriculture in the State.

This has led to establishment of florist shops hitherto unknown and increased use of locally produced fresh flowers for functions and occasions which were earlier imported from other states. Flower Growers Associations have also been formed for the welfare of the flower growers enhancing their bargaining power as a collective in the supply demand chain.

According to the Department of Horticulture, a total area of 96,800 square metre produces 78,57,600 stems with productivity of 100 stems per square metre. Potentials of the State in this sector have to be realised through provision of essential inputs, capacity building of farmers and construction of cold storages.
