Uttar Pradesh government, NBRI agree to join hands to promote flower farming

The Uttar Pradesh government has agreed to join hands with the CSIR-National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI) to prepare a roadmap for the promotion of flower farming in the state under the National Floriculture Mission launched by the Centre more than two years ago, people aware of the development said.

A decision in this regard, according to them, was taken in a meeting chaired by chief secretary Durga Shankar Mishra here after CSIR-NBRI director SK Barik made a presentation on the need and scope for the promotion of floriculture in UP. The NBRI director sought the state government’s support in its endeavors.

The CSIR-NBRI is the nodal body appointed by the Centre for the promotion of flower farming across the country.

“We, in association with the NBRI, will soon prepare a detailed project report (DPR) for the promotion of floriculture in the state and provide all the support the NBRI expects from us,” horticulture department director RK Tomar said when contacted. He said that the current state government had no separate scheme for floriculture promotion.
