17 Policy guidelines for Agriculture Development -Self sufficiency/food security (Food and Horticultural Crops) -Import substitution (Edible Oil, Pulses, Tea) -Export orientation -Resource conservation /Bio-diversity.

18 Objectives of Agricultural Development -Enhance Productivity of crops through development of varieties and technologies. -Efficient use of irrigation -Promote export of high value crops -Promote import substitution -Improve availability of inputs and credit -Improve marketing system -Human resource development/capacity building -Reduce Post Harvest losses.

19 Priorities for Fruit Crops -Varietal development for quality and productivity, extend availability periods. -Bio-technological innovations for dwarfing in Mango, Seedlessness in Kinnow, Shelf life extension, Micro propagation, Virus elimination. -Nutrient and Irrigation Management. -Development of machines for harvesting, grading and processing. -Integrated Pest and Disease Management. -Post Harvest Management and Value Addition. -Root Stock Selection and Nursery Certification.
