Untimely snowfall damages apple crop in Srinagar says Times of India

5 Nov 2018 – A large number of fruit-laden apple trees in Kashmir were either uprooted or their stems broken due to heavy snowfall on Saturday, a department official said.

The worst affected orchards are in Kulgam, Pulwama, Shopian, Bandipora and parts of Baramulla districts, the official said. “Some apple varieties which are plucked late in autumn were still on the trees. The exact losses can be determined only after a detailed survey but as per conservative estimates fruit worth several crores have been lost due to the snow,” he added.
