The past two years have seen substantial growth in India's agricultural sector, coinciding with an increase in both consumption and production. This growth has been accompanied by a notable shift towards specialized agriculture, which involves commercial operations that require smaller tracts of land due to their intensive nature. This type of agriculture includes nurseries, greenhouses, mushroom farms, market gardens, and apiaries. Research is needed to explore alternative ways to support this important economic sector. Potential strategies could include identifying new locations for farmers' markets, expanding sales at existing markets, and finding new markets for specialty crops. The book on 'Specialty Agriculture' seeks to examine the role of specialized agriculture in India's economic development.
