Vegetables are known as protective food because these are rich source of vitamins, minerals and fibres. These always protect human being against many disease and disorder. India is such a country where we find all type of soil scattered all over land masses which is also surrounded by many rivers make it fertile land. Tropical, subtropical and Temperate climate creates opportunity to take a diverse number of vegetables crops all over India. ICAR has emphasized on practical oriented approach on vegetable production in order to tackle these situations. Hence, a practical manual for production technology of vegetables is prepared which may fill in as a guide for the students as well as for the teachers involved to acquire consistency exercises. We express our deep sense gratitude to P. Muthukumar, R. Selvakumar, S. N. Gupta and T. Gopalakrishanan for referring their contribution in entitling the manual “Practical manual on production tropical and subtropical vegetables”. In this manual, different aspects of vegetables production like identification of different vegetables, Good Agricultural Practices for vegetables, IPM, seed rate calculation, kitchen garden,etc. have been discussed.
