The Jammu and Kashmir nestles in the bosom of the mighty Himalayas in the north western corner of India and is blessed with the richness in biodiversity. Nature has bestowed Kashmir not only with its scenic beauty but is also famous for production of diverse types of crops like fruits, vegetables, spices, flowers, field crops etc.
Fruit production is an important industry contributing a great deal to the economy of Jammu & Kashmir. Different temperate fruits are grown in the valley owing to altitude, diverse climatic conditions and complex geo-morphological features. Amongst them apple has attained a significant position in improving the economy of farming community. The cultivation of apple is showing an increasing trend but the average productivity of the crop is low as compared to other countries, because of various constraints and challenges like cultivation and management practices; technical know-how; lack of awareness; marketing; storage; transportation; processing etc. To overcome constraints and challenges Himalayan Farmers Producer Company Limited has been established with overall objective of increasing the productivity through latest technical know-how, supplying quality agro based inputs, improving marketing facilities, creating processing and storage facilities and above all generating employment opportunities to dynamic youth of the valley.
We hope that Himalayan Farmers Producer Company Limited will flourish and progress in the mission of improving economic status of the valley population through its best possible efforts and wish success in this direction.
