The Present Study was conducted to find out the status of polyhouse  farming in Haryana. A detailed interview schedule was developed to collect the data on present situation of poly house farming from each district Horticulture offices. Report on area under poly house farming, types of poly house and benefits to farmer in form of subsidy on construction and plantation was also studied. Through research , it was observed that in Haryana 17,71,21 m2 area was found under poly house farming with the involvement of 1956 farmers. It was calculated that the cost of constructing poly house under 100 m2 is 62,740/- including irrigation and labour , out of which 43,416/- is pay off by government as subsidy. Findings reveled that at the cost of 8926 of plantation, a farmer can earn 45,000 in only three months. So the Government is providing incentive or subsidy to encourage the farmer for choosing poly house farming.
