In view of the predominance of ecological imbalances and the prevalence of different agro-ecological or climatic zones in each state, the agricultural research, extension and development work has got to be location-specific, need-based, problem-solving and production oriented.

In Himachal Pradesh, research and development works have been oriented to take care of hill perspectives and hill specificities, such as agro-climatic or ecological zones, inaccessibility, fragility, marginality, diversity, niche or the comparative advantage like production and marketing of the off-season vegetables and temperate fruits for long-run sustainability.

The production patterns, inputs and package of practices have got to be different and specific to such perspectives, specificities and zones.
