Drivers & Restraints-
Rising Inclusion of Vegetables in Diet to Propel Growth
Nowadays, various companies are developing vegetable hybrids to suit the requirements of farmers and consumers. Such vegetables possess a broad range of qualities, such as shelf-life, flavor, shape, color, yield, taste, nutrition, and adaptability.

Moreover, the rising inclusion of vegetables in one’s diet is helping to combat malnutrition. In many developing countries, the nutritional richness of vegetables is often considered to be a cost-effective remedy for nutritional deficiencies.
