In Kashmir’s strawberry fields, farmers fear losses as sales dip



One of the first horticulture crops of the season in Kashmir – strawberries are ready for plucking.

But due to the lockdown, which was put in place to curb the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), markets, retail shops and transport are shut in the valley and farmers are eyeing major losses this season.
Strawberry farming was introduced in Kashmir not too long ago and given its favourable weather conditions, it has generated employment for locals in the valley.
