Synopsis Since time immemorial, flower growing in India has been an integral part of culture. Traditional methods in flower production have changed during the last two decades due to active patronage of Govt. of India inducing radical changes in commercial floriculture. new concepts of flower production with hitech pre and post-harvest production technologies, and also new flowers and improved export quality cultivars have been introduced. Greenhouse method has also become an integral part of the cultivation of flowers. This transmutation in commercial flower growing in India has necessitated the publication of this book on twelve selected commercially important flowers embracing the most up to date scientific and technological information on pre and post-technologies. Each chapter on flower comprises introduction, origin and history, factors influencing plant growth and flowering, propagation, selection of cultivars, cultivation under open and greenhouse conditions, pests and diseases and their control measures, harvesting and post-harvest technologies for enhancing the vase life of cut flowers alongwith an extensive list of cultivars and research references.

Hope, the readers will find this book informative and useful for pursuing their love for flowers and to take up flower growing as a commercial venture.
