Owing to better edapho-climatic conditions, horticulture is recognized as a remunerative enterprise in western Uttar Pradesh since it has high production potential per unit area than most of the agronomical crops. The future of horticulture industry is considerably increasing and taking root in western region of UP. The cultivation of horticultural crops especially perishable fruits. European vegetables & Cut flowers in the region has been a very profitable venture not only because the region is a part of National Capital Region (NCR) but also very close to national capital. It is pertinent to mention that there was a proposal of 12 colleges in the original master plan of the university. Of these, the establishment of college of horticulture was one of the prime mandates of the university. The establishment of college of horticulture would not only be helpful in imparting education in horticulture but would also facilitate initiation of research work on the burning problems of horticulture and boosting up the quality production of major horticultural crops in the region. Such a highly specialized college will impart education and training to the rural and urban youth of different states of country in general and western UP in particular. This will strengthen the efforts to realize the basic objectives of balanced and rapid development of economy of the region. It hardly needs emphasis that without such an educational institution, the development programme in the field of Horticulture cannot be managed adequately.
Considering the significance of horticulture in the region, the Uttar Pradesh Government has approved the establishment of college of horticulture in the main campus of university. In order to commence the undergraduate programme successfully in Horticulture from the academic year 2019-20, the course curricula of B.Sc. (Hons.) Horticulture degree programme has been prepared as per the 5th Dean Committee recommendation.
I am highly obliged to Hon'ble Vice Chancellor for his kind encouragement and approval for publishing the first edition of syllabus of B.Sc. (Hons.) Horticulture degree programme which would be helpful for students and faculty members as well. I also wish to acknowledge the help and support provided by all faculty members of horticulture in publishing this booklet well in time
