Rajuri (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], September 10 – Efforts and favorable weather conditions in Jammu and Kashmir Vegetation Unit are ready to hit the Star Almond crop market in the Kotranka Budhal block of Rajori district.
Rajori Shafkat Hussein Hussein Khan, head of the woreda’s horticulture department, told NI that the plants donated by the department to the farmers have finally borne fruit.
“There are two zones in Rajuri district – sub-winter and medium. We grow crops such as citrus and mango in the sub-tropical zone. In the tropical zone of Kotranca, Buddhism, Tanamadi and Manjacot, almonds are now being harvested. ”
“High-quality almonds, casseroles, walnuts grow here organic. There are no fertilizers or pesticides, ”he said.
Khan announced that it will promote the planting of various crops under various programs.
He said we will subsidize various facilities such as irrigation, machinery and organic farming.
The official further said that there is a large area of almond cultivation in the woreda and it provides a good income.
“In the past, we used to give seeds to farmers who would take 10 years to produce fruit, but now we have moved to four to five years,” he said.
According to Walt, a Walt producer in Cotranka Budhal Shah Mohammed, Cotranca is a mountainous area, but many crops, such as apples, walnuts, and corn, grow here.
“This year, weeds have been harvested. We produce a variety of walnuts that are stored separately. ”
Growing walnuts requires a lot of hard work from contractors and workers, so we would like to urge the government to set up a fruit mandate here to facilitate crop sales.
He also said that Walnut sales were affected by last year’s Covide-19 outbreak.
“Last year’s walnuts were still stored, so we suffered losses. So we expect some support from the government, ”he said. (ANI)
