This programme is under implementation in 18 districts and 2 Tribal Areas of the state. Andhra Pradesh, with its high growth trajectory, a large population, significant dependence on agriculture and horticulture and an extensive coastline is likely to become a significant player in production and marketing of Horticultural produce.
