Horticulture has a demand in the foreign exchange also.  Having observed this the Indian Government is offering concessions to the horticulture as its contribution.  It has set up National Horticulture board and National Horticulture mission.  Even though horticulture is spreading throughout the country, there is a shortage of skilled and trained human resources. For that very reason a Horticulture university is established in our state.  This was established in Venkatramannagudem, west Godavari dist in 2007.  The vice chancellor of the university informed that the research and development program will be in the direction of creating job opportunities through means of rural industries.
