Integrated approach

For the better rural economy in Jammu and Kashmir the administration is working on an integrated approach. Panchayat system is providing the much needed help to the government to introduce many schemes on the ground so that the benefit goes directly to the farmers.

Recently Lt Governor Manoj Sinha in an agriculture conference said that his government is working on an integrated approach. From reducing input cost & increasing quality at pre harvest stage, facilitation of our farmers to link them with domestic and international markets has become a new normal.

Consistent efforts are being made to diversify the agriculture by bringing in credit, technology, extension to step up present growth rate; besides building capacities of farmers together with creating entrepreneurship; encouraging High Density Plantation; extending agricultural mechanization support and developing Market infrastructure.

The growth potential of the Agriculture and Horticulture sector has started finding interest among potential investors. Our progress in the sector has now attracted markets and entrepreneurs from outside J&K.

While listing out the support extended to the farmers for getting maximum returns, and facilitating Market Linkages of the local produce, he said that the low remunerative crops are being replaced with the high value cash crops. There has been a massive increase in the cultivation of organic and exotic vegetables during last two years. For the first time, more than 2000 truckloads of vegetables have been marketed across the country.
