    Career in Private sector after B.Sc Horticulture
    The career opportunities available for graduates of horticulture with private sector firms are very much ample. This is not only due to the sheer importance of fruits, flowers and plans such as orchids and geraniums in India and abroad, but also due to the fact that these perishable products can be preserved with the aid of modern technology. This new sophisticated approach in the field of horticulture has ensured the safe export of these products.
    The career opportunities for horticulturists range from commercial and environmental sectors to research as well as journalism. The remuneration of people of this field is very much depended on the area where they are employed and the type of the firm that takes them in. The salary of a person employed as an Assistant horticulture inspector will be as much as Rs 7000/- initially and will rise up to Rs 17, 000/- a month. This is depended on the total years of work experience and service. Candidates who work as District Horticulture Officers shall receive a monthly remuneration of above Rs 20, 000/-.
