Review of vegetable production by participants

A review of vegetable production was discussed in groups by participants in their respective camps. The participants brought out any issues on small-holder farmers practices. The camp/block extension officers actively followed the discussions and I was able to make suggestions and give clarifications. Later I presented a brief outline on the current horticultural practices by smallholders summarising the following:- site selection, cultivar choice, nursery management, organic and inorganic fertiliser management, land preparation, irrigation, pest and disease management, post-harvest handling and marketing. The major constraints and gaps were outlined.
