THE AGRI-HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY OF INDIA

Council


The Society is run by a council of members elected every year. The Secretary is the permanent member of the Council and the day to day administration charges are vested on him. He is guided by the council under the leadership of President who holds the highest position in the council. AHSI management team is made up of highly experienced professionals fully committed in providing high quality services to the Society.

Although our Council Members are from diverse backgrounds but they are appreciative of the larger market picture in the field of agriculture, horticulture and floriculture and thus add value to the Society in their own ways.
