Entrepreneurship key player for a developed agriculture sector/ Director Agriculture Kashmir


Srinagar/ 07-06-2021 / Ours is one of the best agro climatic conditions in the country for the production of fresh vegetables and with the introduction of latest agriculture interventions like hi-tech poly green houses, we are able to produce fresh vegetables round the year. One more factor that distinguishes and gives us an edge over the rest of country is that our vegetable crops get ready to consumption when most of the states do not have their crops ready, therefore it increases the avenues for our commercial vegetable growers to market their produce in and outside the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir. These views were expressed by Director Agriculture Kashmir Chowdhary Mohammad Iqbal after inaugurating a vegetable (organic / conventional) market at district Pulwama. Pertinent to mention amid covid-19 lockdown the Department has started an initiative to open such markets in all the districts of Kashmir Division so that the fresh vegetables could be kept available to the consumers of Kashmir. 

Chowdhary Iqbal said that vegetable cultivation has a great potential in these areas of Pulwama and the introduction of organic and exotic vegetable cultivation has added more dimensions to this trade. Holistic, diversified, integrated farming is the key to future success in this enterprise, entrepreneurship is the key player for developed agriculture sector, he said and added.

Later on Chowdhary visited Seed Multiplication Farm Padgampora where he inaugurated the mechanized seedling transplantation of DAPOG raised paddy nurseries. Having an interaction with the officers and technical experts of the Seed Multiplication Farm Director Agriculture asked the concerned officers to organize training programs for the educated youth of adjacent villages in terms of seedling raising on commercial lines so that the entrepreneurship culture could be promoted among the youth. The Department is committed to women and youth empowerment in agriculture sector because the future lies within the expertise of our generations to come, he said and added.

    Cannabis is a product of the plant Cannabis Sativa. The main active chemical in cannabis is THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol). Of the roughly 400 chemicals found in the cannabis plant, THC affects the brain the most. It is a mind-altering chemical that gives those who use cannabis a high.  Another active chemical in cannabis is CBD (cannabidiol), which is being studied for its potential medical applications and its ability to moderate the effects of THC. As long as most governments take a less liberal stance on cannabis than Canada, public funding for cannabis research is likely to remain thin on the ground. In these places, the onus to fund research might fall on private individuals — and some are already stepping up. In April, an alumnus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University gave US$9 million to support cannabis research at the institutions, including studies of how cannabis influences brain development and schizophrenia. Miller, who will receive some funding from the gift, plans to study patterns of brain activation in response to cannabis, with the goal of understanding how the drug affects cognition. Our lifestyle brand is SkК·ati Sбї¤aЖ›М“ЗќЕ‹ which stands for “Crazy Smoke”.

Note: As of October 17, 2020, cannabis oil is no longer a separate product class under Schedule 4 of the Cannabis Act. Oil products have been reclassified either as cannabis extracts, edibles or topical products, depending on the intended use. Oil has therefore been removed from the table below.
