Kashmir has the uniquely dubious distinction of having a vegetable production season throughout the rest of the country's off-season. In Jammu and Kashmir, nearly 70 percent of the population derives its livelihood directly or indirectly from the agriculture sector.
Over the years, the agriculture department has been working to push and reform the agriculture sector. Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, lettuce, and red cabbage are some of the vegetables that vegetable growers in Kashmir can plant to meet the wants of European countries while also earning a lot of money.
The growing of high-value vegetables has the potential to turn agriculture into an export-oriented business that pays profits to vegetable growers. Exotic vegetables were once the possession of the wealthy, and none of them would have been grown on a wide scale here.
