National Horticulture Mission

Annual Action Plan 2009-10

Rajasthan Horticulture Development Society

Directorate of Horticulture, Pant Krishi Bhawan, Jaipur



Rajasthan Agro-ecological situation

  • Rajasthan is endowed with diverse soil and weather conditions
  • The state has well identified 10 Agro-climatic zones











The diversity in climatic conditions of the State creates potentiality to develop certain belts of horticultural crops in the State.

Strategy for implementation of NHM


The strategy is:

  • To cultivate horticultural crops under a cluster approach, wherein all focus and operation will be emphasized on a cluster of horticulture crops and all common resources are pooled and put in to cultivation excellence.
  • End-to-end approach covering all production, post harvest and market related aspects for holistic development of horticulture to assure appropriate returns to the growers / producers and nutritional security of common people.
  • Integration of fruit orchard plantation with farm ponds and water saving technologies of drip system of irrigation
  • Enhancement of scope of employment with the intervention of pre and post harvest infrastructure and hi-tech green house cultivation.
  • Skill development and capacity building of all stakeholders.
  • Forward linkage with processing industries by providing financial assistance to the horticulture based processing units from state plan schemes.
focus crops for the state
Focus crops for the State


Focus crops: Based on

    • Market linkages (existing and potential)
    • Return to farmers
    • Production advantage- potential in the domestic market
    • Export potential
  • Fruits: Mandarin, Kinnow, Pomegranate, Mango, Papaya, Bael, Ber,

Aonla, Guava, Lime, Sweet orange

  • Spices: Coriander, Cumin, Fenugreek, Fennel, Mehandi
  • Flowers: Rose (Dutch rose & Desi rose), Gerbera

Focus crops are being promoted with cluster approach near the existing infrastructure for pre & post harvest, market, processing and AEZ's having a minimum area of 50 ha in each district

market linkages
Market Linkages


  • Four Food parks
  • Two AEZ’s
  • 81 Cold Storages
  • 57 Processing units (fruits)
  • 125 Mandis
  • (19 Commodity Specific Markets)


Proposed Action Plan for 2009-10

Rs. in Lac

Provision of Rs. 1117.00 Lac as state matching share



Major Thrust

  • Planned to brought 34500 ha area under fruit crops during next 3 years for doubling the production by 2011-12
  • 2009-10: 10000 ha
  • 2010-11: 11500 ha
  • 2011-12: 13000 ha

State has established an excellent model by integrating fruit orchard plantation with farm ponds and water saving technologies of micro irrigation- Drip System

Reason: Rapidly depleting ground Water

  • Over exploiting ground water in almost all blocks of the state
    • Semi critical- 14
    • Critical- 50
    • Over exploited –140 dark zones
    • Safe- 32 only






Major Thrust


  • Promotion of green house cultivation through provision of additional subsidy. Now subsidy available for green house in the State is:
    • 75 % for SF/MF farmers instead of 50% under NHM
    • 50 % for other farmers instead of 33% under NHM
  • Capitalize on the naturally growing organic produce
  • Organic Farming linked with Internal Control System & Certification
  • Private sector participation in pre and post harvest infrastructure:
      • Allowing direct purchase from farmers
      • Allowing setting up of private mandies
      • Contract farming in horticultural crops
      • Subsidy on Aonla, Mandarin & Isabgol produce based processing units- @ 50 % of the cost of plant & machinery or Rs. 100 lacs whichever is less
      • Subsidy on planting material for green house/ shade net house cultivation
      • 20% additional subsidy on drip irrigation system installation under MIS
measures to ensure the quality of planting material
Measures to ensure the quality of planting material


  • Formation of RAJHANS, an autonomous society for raising of quality planting material of fruits
  • Mother plants assessment by scientists at RAJHANS units
  • District level committee to monitor, supervise & register private nurseries
  • Procurement of quality material from SAU’S & registered nurseries
  • Establishment of new mother plant blocks from ICAR Institutes/ SAU’s
  • Focusing on production of plant material for the varieties which are in short supply
