Kiwi to grow in valley, 15 times costlier than apple

For the first time, Horticulture Department Kashmir is growing climbers of a fresh fruit, Kiwi, in the Valley; the fruit sells 15 times costlier than apple in the market.

Kiwi Guide
Kiwi Garden J&K

After finding the local climatic conditions conducive for the growth of the fruit, the horticulture department has decided to sell five thousand Kiwi plants to the growers in the first phase of the cultivation. The department will start distribution of the plants from coming February. 

 “Climate of valley is very conducive for the growth of Kiwi and we have already tested the plant in the local environs. The plants have emerged nicely in the soil, bearing fruit in bumper and leaving no problem in ripening,” said Director Horticulture Kashmir, M S Qasba. 
 Kiwi is originally native of China from where it has spread to New Zealand, which has climatic conditions that are almost in sync with the climatic conditions of the valley. In keeping with the temperate climate of the valley, the experts broached the idea of testing the fruit here, which convinced the experts to go ahead with the mission of producing Kiwi in Valley.

While Kiwi is a perennial plant with broad leaves on its branches, it has a rapid rate of transpiration and requires irrigation frequently for its growth and development. In the months of June and July, Kiwi will require irrigation from 4 to 5 times.

“Due to higher transpiration rate, the Orchards need to be irrigated many a time to avoid loss of growth of the fruit. We have already advised the growers not to grow the fruit in un-irrigated fields,” said the Director, adding that the fruit starts ripening in the month of August and is harvested in October.

After 4th year of its transplantation, Kiwi starts bearing fruit and a full grown plant yields upto 50 kgs. The potato size Kiwi is expected to outshine the valley’s popular fruit apple as it sells at a much higher rate than apple in the market.

“One Kilogram of Kiwi sells in the market from rupees 200 to 300 as compared to apple which sells at the rate of rupees 20 to 40. This in itself attests the fact, how profitable it is to grow the exotic variety of fresh fruit in the valley,” said Qasba .

As the fruit will engender a diversification of fresh fruit, the Horticulture Department is optimistic that its cultivation will be beneficial for the fruit industry.

Exotic products such as Kiwi, hazelnuts, asparagus make their way into India plates

NEW DELHI: When Gurgaon resident Avanti Agarwal (name changed) got married this year, dishes made of white asparagus that she had arranged to be served turned out to be a huge hit.

Kiwi is mostly grown in the mid hills of Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, J & K, Sikkim, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh,Karnataka,Uttarakhand  and Kerala.  Having been very newly introduced in the country estimates of area and production have not yet become available.

"We had a separate stall serving white asparagus because it is healthier and more nutritious than the green one. Everyone loved the salads and soups made from it," said Avanti who is a vice president with a multinational bank and a health freak. She is also a regular at gourmet stores in the National Capital. Avanti is not an exception and this is not something that's reserved for special occasions. The grocery lists of many households these days have exotic products such as hazelnuts, asparagus, basil and kiwi fruit— products that were barely visible in the country a few years ago and now increasingly appealing to the Indian palette.

Consider this: India imported $270,000 worth of shelled hazelnuts in the first four months of this financial year compared with $150,000 in the whole of 2014-15. Similarly, asparagus imports have already crossed $160,000 compared with $400,000 last year. Imports of herbs such as rosemary and basil, the foreign cousin of the desi tulsi plant, have more than doubled to $3.5 million in this period from the whole of 2014-15.

Purchases of exotic fruit, vegetables, oils and other ingredients are increasing, thanks to higher incomes, the opening up of gourmet food stores and the rising number of Indians travelling abroad and bringing new tastes back home. Add to this, cookery shows -- both Indian and foreign – that have exposed the upper middle-class to a range of ingredients and dishes so much that the level of experimentation has gone up dramatically.

Separatist leaders have paid  rich tributes to slain Hurriyat leader , farmer supreme commander Sheikh Abdul Aziz on his 10th death anniversary.  
shaheed-e-Azeemat Sheikh  Aziz 
Aljehad & Chairman of People's Leauge ,
Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani described him as a visionary leader. “shaheed-e-Azeemat" usually used to remain silent in the company of his fellow leaders, yet his body language would speak louder than his words. He always remained ready to sacrifice even his life for the sacred cause. This he proved on 11th of August 2008 by facing the bullets while leading a march towards Muzzarafabad. The best way to pay tributes to him and others is to remain steadfast on our resolve and take the ongoing movement to its logical end,” a spokesman of the conglomerate quoted Geelani as having said while telephonically addressing a conference organised by Hurriyat at its head office here.
Geelani urged all the units of Hurriyat Conference to kick start a door to door election boycott campaign, the spokesman said, adding that the conference was presided over by the Hurriyat general secretary, Ghulam Nabi Sumji
In a statement, Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik while paying rich tributes to the late leader said, 
Jinab Sheikh Sahib was a humble soul, a dedicated fighter who remained in the front row of the movement and sacrificed his life for the Kashmir cause.”

Heroin worth Rs. 250 crore seized in J&K

In a major success against drug trafficking and possible narco-terrorism, the police on Monday seized 51 kilograms of high-grade Afghan-origin heroin worth over Rs. 250 crore from a Punjab-bound truck here.PTI

'Biggest ever haul of heroin worth over Rs 250 crore seized in Jammu, two held'

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) has found that at least five Indian companies engaged in cross-LoC India-Pakistan trade have links to the Hizbul Mujahideen, as per a report in Times of India.
As part of its probe into the alleged transfer of funds from across the border, used to fuel terror networks, the NIA had been investigating close to 300 companies that were engaged in cross-border trade since 2008. The agency found five companies with dubious transaction records, leading it to further probe them.
The report quoted sources that revealed that 'these companies were engaged in barter trade with Pakistan-based individuals/companies, that were under-invoicing the import of California almonds at trade facilitation centres (TFCs) located at Salamabad and Chakkan-da-Bagh in Jammu and Kashmir. The money acquired by under-invoicing the import, NIA believes, could have been used to fund "terror operations."

Earlier this month, Some arms and ammunition were recovered from a truck engaged in cross-LoC trade in Uri sector of north Kashmir's Baramulla district. The weapons were hidden in a camouflaged cavity of the truck designed particularly for illegal smuggling.
After clothes, California almonds have emerged as the new product in cross-LoC trade in Jammu and Kashmir that are being used as a mode of terror funding.
The NIA has registered a case in this connection and had carried out searches on traders at trade facilitation centres at Salamabad in Kashmir region's North Kashmir's Baramulla district and Chakan-da-bagh in Poonch district of Jammu region.
According to the cross-LoC trade agreement between India and Pakistan, products grown in both sides of Jammu and Kashmir will be exchanged under the barter system. The products included the California almonds, that is grown in parts of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. During the searches, documents related to exchange of California almonds were seized and are being scrutinised, the NIA said.
The traders from PoK were sending and receiving California almonds and it is alleged that the money was used for funding of terror groups in the state.
"This is in gross violation of the State policy of prohibition on trade in 'third-party origin goods' through this mechanism and information indicated that these funds are being used for fomenting terrorism and separatism in the state of Jammu and Kashmir," the NIA had said.

Doctor on duty declares son brought dead

"He wrapped the body in white cloth and broke down’
When Faizan Ahmed Poswal, 15, sustained bullet injuries in a gunfight between militants and government forces at Thumna village of Pulwama on Friday, he was rushed to District Hospital Pulwama but was declared brought dead by none other than the father Dr Abdul Gani Poswal, a medical officer at the hospital.

Dr Poswal was on duty when he received the body.
The emotions ran high in the hospital when Dr Poswal saw the body of the son but could not save him. He tried hard but it was all over leaving him no option but to declare him dead. He wrapped the body in white cloth and broke down. The doctors, nurses, medical officers all were crying." Funeral prayers were held inside hospital premises which were attended by entire hospital staff and local residents. Dr Poswal lived with his family at residential quarters in the town.
