Abstract

Spices and condiments are part of Indian culture and cuisine from old days. Spices are the main reason for attraction of many countries to India for invasion. India is the largest consumer, producer and exporter for many spices. More than 100 varieties of different spices are growing in different climatic zones of India. Spices are rich source of high value compounds making their use more as a drug than food. Due to these, consumption both in domestic and in global scale is increasing day by day. But biotic and abiotic factors, change in weather and climatic conditions are affecting the production and yield. The other important lacuna is lack of sufficient quality planting/seed material for the farmers. Agrotechniques of spice production are the important aspects from the point of view of yield, productivity and quality. Although there are age-old and standardized agrotechniques across each of the spice growing countries, a scientific principle should always be there as guidline.
