Snowfall in Kashmir to provide impetus to agriculture

Srinagar -  Farmers in Jammu and Kashmir have expressed their joy over the moderate to heavy snowfall in the valley, saying it will provide the required impetus to agriculture in the state.

The valley already has limited water resources for agricultural activities, and most of the time the channels remain dry. But with the advent of winter and the snowfall, water bodies in the state would soon replenish providing much needed boost to agriculture.

“The people who live on the plain areas depend upon agriculture. The snowfall in winters helps us in the months of March and April as the snow melts and the water from the snow helps us to water the fields. We specially depend upon this,” said Bashir Ahmed, a farmer.

Agriculture in Kashmir Valley is a major source of income for residents and most of the population depends on this sector.

The residents said that they are optimistic that there would be more rainfall in the near future and in the months of March and April, the lakes and channels would be filled with water due to the melting of the snow.

The agriculture department expects that this snowfall will benefit the paddy crop in the coming season.
