Abstract:

The vegetable growers of Jharkhand state are challenged with growing abundant, hygienic and nutritious food for an increasing population in the face of changing climate and pest pressures. The Jharkhand state has endowed with quite a diverse climatic condition, hashed, erratic or withdrawal rainfall, drought prone, and unavailability of irrigation. Scarcities of healthy vegetable directly affect the nutritious daily meal. Iron deficiency, anemia is quite wide spread in rural area of Jharkhand, the prevalence varying from 36.5 per cent in adult males to 65 per cent or more in women and children. There is an urgent need for providing health food security to our population by supplying nutrition balanced diet. Vegetables are rich source of vitamins, minerals, and proteins with increased health awareness in the general public and changing dietary patterns, vegetables are now becoming an integral part of average household's daily meals. Protected cultivation of vegetables, including the water saving methods like polythene and straw mulching gave significant increment in production of seasonal as well as off season vegetable crops. A single method to overcome the effects of environmental stresses on vegetables will be achieve through systematic approaches, where all available options are considered in an integrated manner, will be the most effective and ultimately the most sustainable, particularly for drought prone area under a variable climate.
