dc.description.abstractFrost is a major limiting factor in the development of horticulture in the low hill and valley region of Himachal Pradesh. The average minimum temperature of the region remains below 10oC for about four months. Sub-zero temperature is also common during winters. Heavy intensities of the frost were observed in the closed basin areas, frost intensity decreased with the increase in elevation along the slope of the hills. There were defined six types of Agro Ecological Situations (AES) and for each situation separate order of priority for different sub-tropical fruit species have been discussed in this paper keeping in view the frost and economic considerations. The observations of this study may prove to be useful for Horticulture departments and Extension agencies in hilly regions of other states also.en_US
