At present, around 300 hectares of land in the state is under cultivation of different varieties of flowers, particularly marigold, jasmine, aster, rose, chrysanthemum and tuberose. In the recent years, the state has been exporting flowers worth Rs. 2 crore annually and more than 300 people are associated with this sector. Jammu district is enriched with diverse agro climatic condition such as fertile land, suitable climate abundant water supply, low labour cost, availability of skilled man power etc., which are quite beneficial for growing a variety of flowers plant throughout the year. This paper aims to conducting study on appraisal of cost-effective return from open pollinated marigold flower production in Jammu district of Jammu and Kashmir.
