Scientists revolutionising saffron cultivation in Jammu and Kashmir

| @indiablooms | 20 Dec 2022, 05:05 pm

Srinagar: The scientists of Sheri Kashmir University of agriculture science and technology (SKUAST) have successfully produced  indoor saffron for promoting the crop in the region, media reports said.

Kashmiri saffron is considered to be one of the best in the world due to its purity.

It is believed this revolutionary step by the scientists will help the growers to produce saffron even within limited space. At a time, when agricultural land is shrinking, this indoor saffron brings a great opportunity for those with limited space, ANI reported.

For producing the indoor saffron crop, scientists are using plastic trays and specific seeds. After that, they are using racks to keep all the materials inside the dark room and maintain the temperature for better results.

Some growers in the region have already commenced the process and they hope that next year with the help of government support more people will adopt this technology.
