Srinagar, March 17: To promote the cultivation of exotic crops in the Himalayan region, a two-day national conference on the development of horticulture in the Indian trans-Himalayan Region through cooperatives was conducted at Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Kashmir Shalimar campus.

Prof Ganai, at the occasion, announced that SKUAST-K will work jointly with WCoPEF, NCUI, CNRI, CITH-ICAR to promote the cultivation of exotic crops in the Himalayan region under the cooperative mechanism.
