Karnataka has been the first state in the country, to set-up a separate Department for the development of Horticulture in the year 1965, because of its ideal agro-climatic condition and enterprising farming community. Chitradurga District has been in fore-front in respect of Horticultural production particularly in Fruit Crop Production Viz.,Pomegranate, Sapota, Mosambi, Banana, Fig, Mango etc., Present Area under Horticulture crops is nearly 1.00 Lakh Hectares. This increase of area from 15000 ha during 1965 has happened because of introduction to the high yielding varieties, through improved technology and also due to commercialization, the productivity of Horticultural Crops also has improved. Efforts are being made by the Department of Horticulture to boost-up the further area in Horticultural Crops by introduction of Schemes for assistance for various Horticultural Crops are expansion taken by the farmers and also by the introduction of assistance for the establishment of post harvesting and marketing infrastructure. Department of Horticulture is also committed for the transfer of new technology by taking up of demonstration and by conducting seminar in collaboration with the Progressive farmer’s forum and Agriculture Universities.
