Jammu and Kashmir agri exports are getting noticed internationally

The Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory is quickly becoming the export hub for agriculture and associated goods. The trade and export policy 2018-2028, along with numerous government schemes, has given impetus to efficient production and marketing strategies. This has created new benchmarks for J&K in the international market. In the last three year, the Union Territory has witnessed a record-breaking growth of around 55 percent in exports. A large chunk of this percentage comprised of agricultural goods.

Many export success stories are making rounds in Jammu and Kashmir. Entrepreneurs have launched unique products such as cold saffron beverages, apple chips, apple powder, walnut butter and a mechanized unshelled walnut processing chain.

J&K's major agricultural exports include apples, barley, cherries, corn, millet, oranges, rice, peaches, pears, plums, walnuts, almonds, saffron, sorghum, wheat, and vegetables. The exotic vegetables propagated for export to Europe include broccoli, brussels sprouts, asparagus, lettuce, and red cabbage.
