It is really a revolutionary step to provide growers of Jammu and Kashmir with the plantation material with high density values on subsidised rates.
This year Department of Horticulture had procured high density Apple plantation from foreign shores to help growers to increase production.
The arthodoxed way of plantation have no reason to stand since in razor sharp competition the produce needs to be with good quality with good shelf life.
The old plantation of local bread which generally yields crop after more than 15 years has dented the economic conditions of growers and therefore are embedded under the impact of debts .
But new high density plantation on one side yields crop within 5 years and quality of crop is also as per international standards therefore giving booste to economic conditions of growers.
Another important aspect of the scheme is 50% subsidy on its costs and in this direction premier banking house Jammu and Kashmir bank has been looped in to provide subsidy component.
HOPEFULLY THIS WILL BE A TURNING POINT IN THE FATE OF GROWERS.
