Jammu and Kashmir: Rajouri apple farmers are setting example for others

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 26 Aug 2022, 10:15 am

Rajouri: Apple farmers in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri region are setting an example as they are growing the fruit in large quantities on small agricultural lands.

The agricultural land lies in the Gabbar Panchayat in Bughal Block. This cold weather area is located in the heart of the Pir Panjal mountains. The farmers mostly belonging to poor backgrounds, earlier used to harvest maize and wheat, reports ANI news agency.

These farmers have now shifted to apple farming.

They are now engaged in growing almost all the best types and qualities of apples.

Apart from apples, they are also busy cultivating walnuts.

“These apples are from our farm, they are of very good quality, our Prime Minister Modi has said about developing agriculture, he has also given us land, and we poor people are doing very well by growing apples on it,” a local farmer told ANI.
