Agriculture and allied sectors like horticulture (fruits, vegetables, flowers, plantation crops, spices, aromatic and medicinal plants), bee keeping, dairying, poultry, fisheries and sericulture as a core of Indian economy contribute more than 20% to gross domestic product (GDP) and serve as vital sources of raw materials and demand of many industrial products like fertilizers, pesticides, agricultural implements, a variety of other consumer goods, service units thereby grant livelihood to almost 50% of the Indian population. Under existing agricultural system, Haryana has made splendid growth in production of food and allied crops that helped feeding the mammoth population of our country. Now, with entrepreneurial status, it is to bring further improvement in production, processing and marketing for sustaining the availability of safe and secure food for ever increasing huge population and to meet the requirements mainly of large farming community not only as a source of self-employment, livelihood and ultimate economic upliftment but also to generate enough work opportunity for other people associated with this system. Agro-climatic conditions of Haryana are favorable for growing a wide range of horticultural crops that occupied around 5.23 lakh ha area producing 80.2 lakh MT during 2016-17. Likewise, the dairy industry, poultry, fisheries, bee-keeping etc. having export potential that may generate large employment opportunities for rural population are important in socio-economic development of the state. The schemes operative in horticulture, animal husbandry and fisheries under the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers’ Welfare and that of food processing industries actively engaged in promotion of entrepreneurial activities in the segments of fruits and vegetables as well as fish processing also provide avenues for marketing of these commodities and products for the benefit of both farmers and consumers. National Capital city New Delhi, a potentially large market existing at the doorstep of Haryana may provide better opportunity for fresh fruits and vegetable crops and other products generated by farming community in the NCR peri-urbanities. Hence, there exists innumerable business opportunities in the agriculture and allied sectors. Farmers from all over the Haryana state can make efforts in these sectors for unleashing their existing potentialities as well as for exploring the untapped areas and markets. Initiatively, some start-ups in marketing are coming forward towards the upliftment of agriculture sector with innovative ideas to help farmers for marketing of their produce to earn more; however, the introduction of agriculture market platform by the government will make the entire ecosystem of trade very effective.
