Horticulture sector of Agriculture had lagged behind in its development because of the lack of a strong institutional organization in Nepal. Isolated and inconsistent attempts were made in the past for some kind of institutional organization. Frequent changes in the organization without Proper evaluation and expected output of the changed organization have been the major constraint for horticulture growth. Present organization of Agriculture Department needs some kind of adjustment in its set up to take care of the zeal and commitment on the part of the government for implementation of horticulture programme under Agriculture perspective Plan (APP). Recommendations are made for minor adjustment in the present institutional organization under the Department of Agriculture.
