In view of the upcoming 2010 Commonwealth Games, farmers of North India have begun large-scale cultivation of flowers. Farmers hope to get good returns for their hard work. So sensing the significance of the events, the farmers are now moving towards floriculture and are accepting floriculture over traditional crops.
An increasing number of farmers are substituting traditional farming with flower cultivation. They are growing roses, marigolds and gebra.
In 2010, the Commonwealth Games will be held in Delhi for which we are getting prepared. The demand of flowers has gone high and many people including locals and tourists come here to buy flowers.
2010 Commonwealth Games will be India’s first major international sports event after the 1982 Asian Games. Delhi had bagged the games after beating the Canadian city Hamilton in the bid for rights to host the games.
