In Romania, horticulture is an important economic branch through the production of vegetables, fruits, wine and table grapes, flowers and raw materials for the food industry. After 1990, in horticulture, like in other agricultural branches, there was a sharp decrease in production, as a result of the dissipation of areas, the ageing of fruit tree plantations and vines, etc. A certain revival of the horticultural sector begins in the last decade, but the average yields per hectare are, in many cases, much lower than in countries with advanced horticulture. Romania has imported horticultural products in recent years, mainly fruits and vegetables of around 1 billion euro.  This paper done a SWOT analysis of Romanian horticulture (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Risks), and is presented an updated situation of this sector. In the first part of the paper is presented target objectives of national horticulture for period 2021-2040: Development of new production capacities and/or modernization of existing ones and Quantitative and value increase in exports of horticultural products with a view to balancing the trade balance. In the second part of the paper is presented a case study for vegetable growing and some proposals for investments of this branch: New buildings solariums, warehouses, including conditioning and delivery facilities and modernization of vegetable farms in the field.
