Jammu and Kashmir: Farmers yield better result from 'Jeevika' scheme in Udhampur

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 10 Oct 2020, 04:17 pm

Srinagar: Farmers in Jammu and Kashmir's Udhampur region are benefiting by utilizing the 'Jeevika' scheme which helped them enable better yield this season.

The 'Jeevika' scheme was launched by the Jammu and Kashmir district administration to increase the irrigation of agriculture land and conservation of water to enhance the livelihood of farmers, reports ANI.

"Our income has almost doubled after utilizing the benefits of the 'Jeevika' scheme. Even ITBP personnel come and buy our harvest because they hear we use organic manure," a local farmer told ANI.

Farmer Nandlal told ANI, "Initially we would plant fewer vegetables because of limited water available in the fields. But since the government provided us larger water avenues, we began extensive plantation of vegetables. I would make a profit of Rs 20,000- 25,000 earlier but this time I earned around Rs 70,000- 80,000."
