Abstract:

Apple is considered as one of the most important and widely grown fruit in temperate zones of the world. The state of Jammu and Kashmir comprising of temperate, cold arid and hilly areas is capable of producing best quality of apple than rest of the states of the country. The present study was conducted in 2017-18 from nine villages of three (3) districts in Kashmir valley. The data was collected from three hundred (300) apple growers. A multistage sampling procedure was adopted for the selection of sample respondents in order to study the different services rendered by the Government agencies. The study reveals that among all the three districts, majority of the apple growers did not receive benefits from such government services. In case of district Shopian and district Budgam, majority of the apple growers were benefitted from the facilities of “interest free credits” while as in case of district Baramulla, majority of the apple growers were benefitted from the facilities of “Expert guidance for orchard planning”.
