Divya, Deepa Shrama, Anchal Chauhan and Madhvi
Vegetables are one of the good sources of vitamins and minerals and play important role in ensuring food and nutritional security. The main purpose of this study is to explore the effects of soil and environment on vegetable production. It also explores the factors of soil and environment responsible for yield variation of vegetables. This study is which uses a number of secondary sources including journal articles, books, scientific magazines, statistical data and internet sources. This study reveals that there is a great impact of soil and environment on vegetable production. It also explores that a number of soil factors like soil type, soil pH, soil fertility, and soil salinity and environmental factors like light, temperature, humidity, drought and flooding are accountable for the variation of the yield of vegetable production. This article suggests that a consciousness and knowledge dissemination is necessary to the farmer’s level about the effects of soil and environmental factors for maximum yield of vegetables.
