Abstract
Anthurium mostly cultivated for their very beautiful and long lasting flowers and is one of the thrust horticultural crops of Mizoram because of many advantages including increasing demand for global market, ideal agro-climatic conditions, availability of groups of farmers having fertile land and assistance provided by the Horticulture Technology Mission for the North Eastern states etc. Presently, different international varieties of Anthurium are cultivated by the growers in Mizoram.
Anthurium cut foliage has a good market potential for export and even local market due to its colourful Spathe and Spadix. The plants are being grown along hill slopes under shade houses with the latest Dutch varieties with sprinkler irrigation and fertilizer like coco-peat etc. If the production technology is properly managed, it can generate a monthly income of Rs. 5000-25000/- for a single family. Besides the growers, it generates employment to the women of other families in terms of labour. In fact, floriculture can replace shifting cultivation to a large extent in many places of the North Eastern states if proper institutional arrangement is made.
