Abstract:

Fruits as a back bone of horticulture are grown over an area of 5.50 million hectares in our country with a production of over 55 million metric tones per year. Our country accounts for 10% of the total world production. Among various fruits, apple being the pre-dominant temperate fruit of India accounts for about 3% of the total fruit production of the country. India stands 8th in apple production in the world but ranks at 53rd position in terms of productivity (FOA, 2007). In India average productivity of apple is nearly 6-8 tonnes per hactare which is lower than the average yield of advanced countries. e.g. Belgium (46.22 tons/ha), Denmark (41.87) and Netherland (40.40 t/h). Among the temperate fruits in Jammu and Kashmir, apple ranks 1st covering 43.30% area and 80.18 % production respectively. (Anonymous, 2008). In the state, Kashmir valley is rich in flora and fauna and it is the largest apple producing region in the country and at present apple industry has become the backbone for Kashmir’s rural economy, generating employment to thousands of people besides providing multinutrtional security.
