As part of the event, Director Horticulture Jammu initiated a plantation drive by planting a mango sapling for compact plantation in a farmer’s field in Gurha Jagir, Akhnoor, covering an area of 20 kanals. He interacted with farmers and highlighted the potential of horticulture cultivation for sustainable growth and economic prosperity. He encouraged farmers to form Self Help Groups (SHGs) for setting up small fruit and vegetable processing units with financial assistance from the department, which can contribute to increasing family income.
