Horticulture Sector Development for Emerging Markets

The rapid rise of the middle class and rising per capita income in emerging economies are leading to increasing demand for healthy, safe and sustainably produced horticultural products. These developments offer new opportunities for farmers and stakeholders involved in the sector. However, it also requires the transition from highly fragmented and informal market channels to a more professional horticultural sector. Development of the national horticulture sector may in turn open up opportunities for accessing the international export market for horticulture products.
