Project Details


Production and productivity increase of apple is important (given the low level at the moment) but the true potential and value for target stakeholders associated with apple can only be achieved when there is an end-to-end or holistic development plan for the entire value chain of apple.

The project aims to identify and assess a holistic and coherent development plan for apples in J&K by focusing on the following areas:

  • Nursery development (including aspects related to varietal traits; inspection of planting material, quarantine protocols and logistics)
  • Agronomic practices (entire package of practices including soil management, irrigation, protocols, pollinators)
  • Transparency in the supply chain
  • Smart agro logistics plan
