There is a special emphasis on the horticulture sector in Jammu and Kashmir and the government is trying to provide quality planting material to the growers.
Recently LG Manoj Sinha inaugurated Mega Fruit Plant Nursery at Chakroi, RS Pura in Jammu.
He said such Nursery will provide best technologies as well as true-to-type quality planting material that will reshape the Horticulture Sector in Jammu and Kashmir.
It is a massive achievement that in one year a mega fruit plant nursery has been established in an area where cross border shelling was a normal thing in fields. This decade in agriculture & horticulture sector belongs to J&K UT. The policies through holistic development plan have laid the foundations for a sea change in J&K’s economic growth.
He shared the vision of the government to bring a significant change in the lives of farmers of J&K and accelerate the growth of J&K’s economy.
Our effort is to make sub-tropical fruit cultivation a multi-faceted business by increasing efficiency of orchards with the help of various interventions like setting up new nurseries and new plant material testing labs.
Government is committed to serve the present and future needs of farmers in an integrated manner. Our endeavour is also to convert farm’s & orchard’s potential into farmer’s power and transform all the districts of both Jammu and Kashmir divisions into a hub of export with the cultivation of niche crops and value addition of special products.
