Career in Horticulture

Introduction::

Horticulture has the challenge of mass scale multiplication of any species of plants for commercial purposes. It not only encompasses cultivation of plants, vegetables, flowers, fruits, herbs, shrubs, bushes, ornamental trees and landscaping for gardens, maintaining nurseries, green houses, gardens, orchards and plantations but also includes floriculture or cultivation of flowers.

Nature of Work:

This career is extremely lucrative since not only are the demands for good plants, flowers, fruits increasing but the technology (in terms of preserving these perishable products) too is becoming more sophisticated which ensures better results. The export industry is also helping build up the number of available jobs.

Eligibilty:

Although entry into the field does not require formal training, it is certainly advisable since the industry is expanding at a rapid rate and more information implies better opportunities. Most of the educational institutions in India teach horticulture as a part of the agricultural sss, while some offer a separate B.Sc. degree. Candidates can choose between doing a B.Sc. in agriculture or horticulture.
