JK: 5500 hectares of high-density plantation scheme in horticulture sector under support of NAFED

The Jammu and Kashmir Administrative Council under the chairmanship of Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha has approved the implementation of high-density plantation scheme in the horticulture sector with the support of National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India Ltd (NAFED).

The step will go a long way in enhancing the quality and quantity of horticulture produce and doubling the farmer’s income. The farmer-centric scheme will be implemented for apple, walnut, almond, cherry, litchi, and olive among others over an estimated area of 5500 hectares of suitable agro-climatic zones for 6 years with effect from March 2021 to March 2026.

The new scheme has provisions to provide 50 percent subsidy to orchardists for the establishment of high-density orchards accompanied by a loan facility for raising 40 percent of remaining capital. Besides, the scheme will also provide subsidies to growers on account of expenditure related to micro-irrigation, plant material, and anti-hail nets. Under the scheme, preference will be given to farmers with landholdings of less than 4 kanal.
