Kashmir Exported 2 Million Tons of Apple a Year Before COVID-19 Struck

 

India's state of Jammu and Kashmir exported more than 2 million metric ton of Apples in a year before the global pandemic COVID-19 struck, according to government figures. A significant population of Kashmiris depend on the horticulture industry of which production and export of Apples is a major part.
