Creation of 192 posts in the Horticulture Department Andhra Pradesh 1

Commissioner of Horticulture, AP, Hyderabad has reported that the Department of Horticulture is playing a key role in the development of horticulture in Andhra Pradesh.  The department has taken up a number of developmental activities.  The total area under horticulture crops in the State is 19.91 lakh Hectares, which is 13% of the gross cropped area.  Some of the important ongoing programmes are State Horticulture Mission (SHM), Andhra Pradesh Micro Irrigation Project (APMIP), RashtriyaKisan Vikas Yojana (RKVY), National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS), Oil Palm Development Programme (OPDP), Hybrid Vegetable Seed Programme, etc.  In this context, a number of technical staff are required to implement development programmes at the village level.  Considering the dearth of technical officers in all cadres, the department has been facing difficulty in disseminating the latest and improved technology.  Therefore, the Commissioner of Horticulture has furnished proposals for sanction of additional staff in the Horticulture Department for strengthening the department.

The Agriculture & Cooperation (Horticulture) Department requested for sanction of the following posts in the Horticulture Department for strengthening the Department:
