India: Floriculture boosts exports in Bangaru Telangana

Floriculture is one of the focus areas of horticulture and has significant potential for exports. The department provides incentives for encouraging farmers to take up floriculture activity.
Bathukamma festival, declared a state festival, is basically a festival of flowers decorating the Goddess in which people of Telangana repose their faith, and is expected to provide impetus to the coming years. 

IPM and INM have played an important role in quality enhancement by control of pest and diseases in horticultural crops. Use of bio-inputs like T.Viridae, Pseudomonas, Neem Oil etc. not only reduced pesticide residue and improved the quality of produce but also enhanced market price of the produce. An area of 5883 ha under various fruit crops was covered under IPM / INM practices. A total of 14350 Light Traps were distributed to reduce pest incidence in mango.
