DG Horticulture visits Kangan, Gbl

GANDERBAL, AUGUST 21 ( KINS ) : The Director General (DG) Horticulture Kashmir, Aijaz Ahmad Bhat today visited Kangan Sub-division of district Ganderbal as a part of public outreach programme.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

On the occasion, the DG visited various Apple High Density (HD) Orchards of the area. He highlighted the scope of HD Plantation in the area and appreciated the hard work of farmers who have established HD apple orchards with the help of the department.

He impressed upon the Chief Horticulture Officer, Ganderbal to make efforts to educate the public about the Modified High Density programme and took the review of progress of the scheme for which the plantation is likely to start from October 2021.

The DG directed the field functionaries to have special focus on women, marginal and ST farmers. He also directed them to impart special training to the orchardists regarding harvesting of fruits like proper method of plucking the fruit, grading, packaging etc.

Later, the DG visited Fruit Plant Nursery Wussan and took a review of the developmental works of the nursery besides different cultural operations being carried out. He stressed for timely completion of all the operations to propagate quality walnut plants.
