Message from Director

Jammu and Kashmir State is a food deficit State. There is a big gap between production of food grains and their consumption as a result State has to import about 07 lakh MTs of food grains  every year.The Food grain production in Kashmir Division has touched 9.9 lakh M.Ts figure by the end of 2013-14. But still the deficit is 21.70% (about 2.65 lakh M.Ts). The deficit in production in  Kashmir Division is mainly due to geographical and climatic conditions as most of the area is mono cropped. Another factor responsible for this is small and fragmented land holdings that minimize the scope of mechanization and other scientific practices for more production. Moreover conversion of agricultural land for Horticulture and other non-agricultural purpose is also contributing to this deficit.

In order to bridge this gap to the maximum possible extent Agriculture Department has been striving hard for increasing the production level of various crops including food crops. To achieve this objective the Agriculture Department is implementing a number of Centrally Sponsored Schemes to incentivize farmers for adopting latest technology to enhance the production. During past few years we have achieved remarkable success in enhancing the production level of some important crops like Paddy, Maize, Vegetables and Saffron thereby improving the economic condition of the Farmers. However, there is yet lot more to be done to bring further improvement in the implementation of Agriculture schemes to make the State self sufficient. For this all stakeholders are required to join hands and remain connected.  Website of the Department is a step in this direction which aims at to associate all stake holders in this endeavor. I hope that the Website of the Agriculture Department will prove beneficial for all stakeholders especially the farming community.
