Kashmir proudly known as the paradise of earth is also home to temperate fruits like apple for which the state is very famous across
the globe. The main factor which influences temperate fruit bearing trees is soil, climate and environment which are highly favorable and unparalleled in the province of Kashmir. Apple (Malus pumila) is commercially the most important temperate fruit and is fourth among the most widely produced fruits in the world after banana, orange and grape. Man has very little control over nature especially factors like the climatic conditions which influences the geographic distribution of various kinds and varieties of temperate fruits. Although apple can be grown in all temperate regions including both the northern and the southern hemisphere it is not possible in the tropical climate of South Asia.Hence apple is grown only at higher elevation where the temperature drops down to a very low level which is highly required for the growth of such fruit bearing trees. Thus in the Indian sub continent the Himalayan region especially the state of Kashmir which is noted for its monsoon is supposed to be the most favorable location for the growth of not only apples but also other temperate fruits. Kashmir has a distinct identity of having an unbroken historical record for its temperate weather conditions from early days to present period. It is believed that things which are difficult to be got even in heaven like lofty houses, saffron (crocus), grapes, icy water and the apples are easily available here. The freely available fruits of the state form an important part of the diet of the people.
Apple industry needs appropriate consideration Jammu and Kashmir is wealthy in various harvests like rice, apple, maize, saffron, pecan portions, apricot, pears, almonds, plum, cherries, and saffron, and so forth In any case, apple is the fundamental money crop on which business of individuals depends. Just about 7 lakh families (33 lakh individuals) ar straightforwardly or in a roundabout way engaged with the apple business in the J&K. 1.9 million tons of apples are delivered each year. India yearly fares apples worth Rs 400 million out of which apples worth Rs 10 million are traded from Kashmir. Apple is a critical wellspring of nutritive eating regimen, this gives a significant kind of revenue and work moreover. Its creation in Jammu and Kashmir and its advertising everywhere on the nation too trade advancement to different nations is done under a few governments-started projects and strategies e.g., value strategy, credit strategy, the inventory of pressing boxes, quality control, and so forth Yet, the effect of these projects is easily proven wrong. Consistently apple cultivators endure tremendous misfortunes and some of them feel so impartial in apple development that they truly consider moving towards different areas. This is the issue that should be examined and impressive advances ought to be taken to guarantee that apple cultivators don’t confront consistent misfortunes. Albeit the cultivation division and public agriculture board had found a way some great ways to beat these misfortunes yet at the same time significantly more is to be accomplished for the ranchers and to help the economy of Jammu and Kashmir. The apple business is fundamentally reliant upon the standard pesticides. Cultivation division ought to guarantee that appropriate and standard pesticides reach to the ranchers. As of late it has been seen that various organizations sell low standard pesticides in the valley bringing about the hefty harm to the yield. The cultivation division ought to guarantee the appropriate method to sell the productive and standard pesticides. Extra crews ought to be made accessible to check the offer of pesticides and severe laws ought to be made to rebuff those selling the beneath standard pesticides. Cultivation division should begin their outlets to sell the normalized pesticides in various areas of the valley to guarantee that natural product cultivators are not cheated. Plus, the office should issue “opportune warnings” in regards to shower plan, and so on Additionally, the agriculture division should begin their distributing outlets during the post-reaping season with the goal that ranchers ought to get sensible cost for their diligent effort. A few ranchers can’t sell their entire produce at the hour of the post-gathering season as produce is more and request is less. Cold stockpiling units may assume a significant part in this unique situation. Cultivation division is despite the fact that putting forth vigorous attempts to set up the virus store units however the endeavors are not coordinating with the requests of individuals. Hence the public authority ought to build up its own cool stockpiling units too so helpless ranchers are profited. The public authority ought to likewise deal with ranchers if their produce gets influenced by the climatic conditions like breeze, snow, downpour, and so on They ought to be appropriately and ideal redressed. Government ought to guarantee crop protection and ought to likewise announce, once for all, the less than ideal snowfall, that impacts the organic product, as a catastrophic event. The agriculture division is putting forth acceptable attempts to conquer these things and is bending over backward for the improvement of ranchers yet at the same time much more is to be done to support the apple business and help the ranchers of the valley. Agriculture is spine of Jammu and Kashmir’s economy. This area can possibly put Kashmir’s generally broken economy back on rails and has likewise huge capability of making occupations. Need is that the public authority views this area appropriately and initiates the agriculture office to recognize the provisos and manage something similar. The ranchers ought to be made mindful of the cutting edge and logical strategies to support the yield and keep away from misfortunes.
