Over 93% of the population in Himachal Pradesh depends directly upon agriculture, which provides direct employment to more than 70% of its people. However, agriculture in the state suffers from certain limitations, especially in the production of food grains. One of the reasons is the small land-holdings, and the menace of wild animals. Aromatic crops provide attractive options for small land holdings in the hilly terrain as they are not destroyed by wild-animals. Under the mission programme, 8 awareness programmes were conducted and a total of 115 farmers participated. Tagetes minuta, a crop which requires low agri-inputs and care was introduced in about 70 hectares, which provides a handsome profit of more than Rs. 1.5 Lakh per hectare in a span of 4-5 months. In the coming years, it is proposed to introduce some high-value crops like Valeriana, Rose and Lavender in the state for boosting the income of farmers. Also, Lemongrass would be introduced in the foothills of Himachal Pradesh.
