India, known as the home of spices, boasts a long history of trading with the ancient civilizations of Rome and China. Today, Indian spices are the most sought-after globally, given their exquisite aroma, texture, taste and medicinal value. India is the world’s largest producer, consumer and exporter of spices; the country produces about 75 of the 109 varieties listed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and accounts for half of the global trading in spices. The Indian spices market is worth 400 billion annually. Key spices produced in the country include pepper, cardamom, chilli, ginger, turmeric, coriander, cumin, celery, fennel, fenugreek, ajwain, dill seed, garlic, tamarind, clove, and nutmeg among others.
India possesses many innate advantages over other spice producing countries, its large genetic base, varied soil and climatic conditions, and skilled human power. However, in many of the spice crops productivity is low in India like black pepper, small cardamom. Declining soil fertility, use of low level of inputs like manures, fertilizers and crop protection measures, high labor cost and crop loss due to diseases, lack of resistant varieties and post harvest losses are the major reasons.
