STORY: A three-day flower exhibition concluded in India’s northeast Kohima city on Thursday (April 13).
Organised by Nagaland Flower Growers Society (NFGS) and state’s department of horticulture, the exhibition was held to promote floriculture in the state and encourage flower growers.
The event, which began on Tuesday (April 11), featured competitions too in various categories such as arrangements of dry and fresh flowers. A contest for schoolchildren was also organised which saw active participation from students.
Apart from the competition, visitors had an option to buy fresh flowers, manures, flower seeds, plants and other things.
India is a small player in the 40 billion dollar global cut flower industry, dominated by Holland, France, Italy, South Africa and Thailand.
