The report titled “India Protected Cultivation Industry Outlook to 2017 - Government Initiatives Paving the Way for Future Growth” provides a comprehensive analysis on the protected cultivation in India and the market analysis of various methods being used for the protected cultivation such as greenhouse, shade nets, mulching, anti-hail/bird nets. In India, protected cultivation has been implemented in an area of ~ hectares in FY’2012. The protected cultivation in India has witnessed a rapid growth of ~% for the period of FY’2007-FY’2012. The area under protected cultivation was 0.23% of the total area under the horticulture cultivation in India in FY’2012.The major crops grown in the protected cultivation are tomato, capsicum, cucumber, melons, rose, gerbera, carnation and chrysanthemum. With
the coordinated efforts of the center and state governments, protected cultivation is expected to gain popularity in India in the coming years. The states and union territories that have adopted protected cultivation in the country have increased from 9 states in FY’2007 to 30 states and union territories in FY’2012. The phase wise implementation of protected cultivation has bolstered the adoption of protected cultivation across the country.
Combined efforts of the national boards such as NHM, NHB and RKVY have created awareness and are providing financial assistance to the farmers to adopt protected farming methods for agricultural cultivation. The states that have consistently expanded the area under protected cultivation for the period of FY’2007-FY’2012 are Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Haryana, Punjab, Tamil Nadu and West Bengal. Maharashtra and Gujarat had a cumulative area of 5,730.23 hectares and 4,720.72 hectares respectively under the protected cultivation till FY’2012. In the coming years, it is expected that the states shall actively engage themselves in promoting protected cultivation in the states through various subsidy schemes and incentive programs for the protected cultivation.
Protected cultivation through mulching was being widely used by the farmers on a pan India basis. Around ~ hectares were being cultivated through mulching in FY’2012. The widespread usage of mulch films in protected cultivation is due to the low cost associated with this technique as compared to other techniques such as shade nets, greenhouses and plastic tunnels. Other means of protected cultivation such as the shade nets was the second most widely used protected cultivation method in the country. The area under the shade nets has increased from 199.07 hectares in FY’2007 to ~ hectares in FY’2012. Plastic tunnels had registered a significant growth of 60.5% for the years FY’2007 to FY’2012. The area protected by the plastic tunnels was 4.3% of the total area under the protected cultivation in FY’2012. The area protected by the greenhouses was 2.2% of the total area under protected cultivation in FY’2012. The area under the greenhouses has increased at a CAGR of 49.16% from FY’2007 to FY’2012
With the rising involvement of the government national boards and the respective state agricultural agencies, the area under protected cultivation is expected to rise from ~ hectares in FY’2013 to ~ hectares by FY’2017 at a CAGR of 84.2% for the period FY’2013 to FY’2017. The subsidy schemes, international associations with countries such as Israel are expected to act as a major boost the protected cultivation in India. The only major challenge for the adoption of the protected cultivation is the cost of the methods and lack of awareness. If these aspects are taken care off by the industrial players and the government, then the protected cultivation industry will showcase remarkable growth in the next 5 years.
