Additional Chief Secretary Atal Dulloo flagged off a consignment of vegetable seedlings for Gurez under the Holistic Agriculture Development Programme (HADP). The consignment included seedlings of tomato, brinjal, chillies, kale, saag khanyari, red cabbage, and green cabbage.

In his statement, Dulloo mentioned that the department is making efforts to expand vegetable cultivation both vertically and horizontally. The consignment of seedlings to Gurez is a crucial step towards this goal. The government is committed to the development of agriculture and allied sectors in all regions of Jammu and Kashmir, and promoting vegetable cultivation can boost the socio-economic landscape of farmers.

Commercial vegetable farming has been identified as a crucial factor in achieving economic prosperity for the farming community. The government has approved 29 projects, including the promotion of vegetable and exotic vegetables under open and hi-tech protected cultivation. The implementation of HADP projects, especially in the vegetable sector, is expected to revolutionize the vegetable sector in Jammu and Kashmir.

The promotion of vegetable cultivation in remote areas like Gurez is a commendable initiative by the Agriculture Production Department. Vegetable cultivation not only helps farmers earn a livelihood but also contributes to the state's overall economic growth. The Holistic Agriculture Development Programme is an excellent step towards achieving this objective.

It is heartening to see the government taking proactive measures to promote agriculture and allied sectors in Jammu and Kashmir. The state has immense potential for agriculture, and initiatives like the HADP will help in harnessing this potential. The promotion of vegetable cultivation can also help in reducing the state's dependence on imported vegetables.

In conclusion, the flagging off of the consignment of vegetable seedlings to Gurez under the HADP is a significant step towards promoting vegetable cultivation in Jammu and Kashmir.

The government's commitment to the development of agriculture and allied sectors is commendable, and initiatives like these can help in achieving economic prosperity for farmers and overall growth for the state.
