Cut flowers have a lot of potential for commercial cultivation and marketing. The demand for exotic cut flowers is growing day by day. Among cut flowers, Lilium occupies an important place and is counted among the ten major cut flowers in the international floriculture industry. with the increase in demand, there is a need to diversify its cultivation in the non-traditional area also. Though, various works have been carried out depending upon the region to standardise the package and practices in traditional areas. However, for better yield and quality, its cultivation has now been carried under protected structures. Moreover, protected cultivation enables the possibility to grow lilium in non-traditional area as well. This article is compilation of the production techniques viz., improved cultivars, propagation methods, intercultural operations, insect-pest disease management and post-harvest technology developed for commercial production of Lilium which can be replicated in traditionally non-growing areas after its proper validation.
