South Kashmir apple growers intent on keeping more produce in cold storage

Growers from different areas of South Kashmir have made clear that in 2020, around 50 percent of produce was kept in cold storage units as compared to 2019 This year, the demand of apple remained very good throughout the year despite Covid restrictions due to which people had good returns. Growers said this year production is less as compared to last few years, however, quality is better and most people are now keeping their produce in cold storage units.

According to one grower from Shopian, mostly delicious apples were being kept in cold storage units but this year even 30 to 40 percent units have already been filled with Kulu delicious apples.

He said that usually an apple box of around 15 kg is being sold in between Rs 800 to 1200 but last year the same apple box which was kept in cold storage units was sold at around Rs 1800 to 2000, due to which more people prefer to keep their produce in cold storage units.
