India is leading vegetable producing country and ranks 2nd in the world after china in vegetable production. Presently it occupies 6.76 million hectares area with the annual production of 101.43 million tones (Rai and Pandey 2007). The country is blessed with the unique gift of nature of diverse climate and distinct seasons, make it possible to grow an array of vegetables exceeding more than 100 types. Incessant growth of urbanization, ceaseless fragmentation of land holdings and depleting natural resources are the major challenges before expansion of any agricultural commodity either cereals or vegetables. Hence our attention should be focused on vertical expansion strengthened with the boon of technology instead of horizontal expansion just by increasing the crop area.
