Indian horticulture sector is witnessing a ‘size revolution’ now. Farmers are opting for seeds that can produce small fruits and vegetables as nuclear families prefer to buy smaller varieties.
“Urban consumers are increasingly demanding smaller fruits and vegetables. Therefore, farmers are also focusing on this segment,” Organic Farming Association of India president Sarvadaman Patel said.
He added that farmers are getting more returns as the crop size is increased due to smaller vegetables.
