'Sub-standard products destroying Kashmir apple sector'

President of the Fruit Mandi Sopore, Fayaz Ahmed Malik, has stated that sub-standard fertilizers and spurious pesticides are a constant threat to Kashmir horticulture. He said the Horticulture Department is not acting against those selling the fake products. He said spurious pesticides and fertilizers are hitting the crop and hence affecting farmers livelihood.

He said that the Kashmiri apple is the bestseller in the country. “We have the highest production. The growers can ensure round-the-year supply all over India with the best quality apples if they get the right timely support from the government.”
