India: State to promote orchid cultivation in Jalpaiguri, greenhouse to be set up

The state Horticulture department will now promote orchid cultivation as an alternative source of income alongside flower and fruit cultivation in Jalpaiguri. For this, the farmers’ producer organizations and self-help groups are being engaged in various workshops.

On the other hand, the Jalpaiguri Horticulture department is taking initiatives to establish a greenhouse spanning 2,000 square meters in the Haldibari area of Jalpaiguri. This project aims to promote orchid cultivation and create a garden.

According to department officials, there is an increasing demand for orchids in the current market. Additionally, the favorable weather conditions in the region are conducive to orchid cultivation.

Therefore, efforts are being made to utilize this weather advantage in the cultivation process. About 36 to 37 species of Dendrobium orchids and Vanda orchids are found. A suitable environment for these species is present in the Nagrakata and Malbazar Meteli areas.
