The peony flower, known for its vibrant blooms, has long been cultivated in various parts of the globe, primarily for its ornamental value.

However, its commercial cultivation in India has remained largely unexplored until recent trials conducted at the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR)-Institute of Himalayan Bioresource Technology (IHBT)’s floriculture farm here.

Led by a team of researchers, the peony trials have been initiated at the CSIR-IHB, which is situated in Palampur. The trials have shown promising results, igniting hopes for the cultivation of this lucrative crop among farmers.

Favourable climate and soil conditions of the region, coupled with meticulous research and development efforts, have led to remarkable outcomes for this high-value crop in the Indian Himalayan region.
