In the past few years, India has been consistently lagging behind in exports of agricultural products. For example, where the country's floriculture exports stood at 35,166 metric tons in 2017-18, it decreased further to 31,745 metric tons by 2019-20. Obviously, this affected the financial condition of the country. In 2017-18, the country earned $182.76 million through floriculture exports, which came down to $177.41 million in 2019-20. Similarly, there has been a decline in exports of fresh fruits and vegetables. In the year 2017-18, 28,99,525 metric tons of fruits and vegetables went exported out of the country, the same figure was reduced to 26,55,587 metric tons in 2019-20. Income from this also decreased from $1,385 million to $1,277 million
