Wheat harvesting started along the international border in Jammu and Kashmir’s Gajnisu region, and it was recognised as a sign of peace and stability. This year-long India-Pakistan border ceasefire has fostered a tranquil environment.
The Agriculture Department’s seed doubling farm spans 2,300 acres of land on both sides of the border fence. It is situated on the zero line in the Golpatan Chinor region, some 55 kilometres from Jammu, actively functioning with people and equipment.
The wheat crop in this field is now being harvested. The manager of the Seed Multiplication Farm in Channoor, Kuldeep Raj, stated that the harvest was ready and that it would take a few days to finish it in this field.
Raj also mentioned that 2,290 acres of land on both sides of the border fence are being harvested. They will use the aid of the Border Security Force (BSF) to gather across the wall on 280 acres after the harvesting on this side of the fence is finished.
He explained how crucial cultivating and harvesting land outside the fence was. Residents living along the border who had been living in constant fear of cross-border firing in Jammu and Kashmir have renewed expectations for a peaceful future due to the truce announced by both militaries on February 25 in a joint statement.
Jammu and Kashmir run one of the giant farms of, Seed Multiplication Farm. It produces high-yielding seeds given to farmers as part of the Samagra Krishi Vikas Yojana.
Other crops grown on the 200 acres of the farm include oats, potatoes, mustard, and others. This orderly harvesting in Jammu along the Indo-Pak border is not only good news for the farmers but also encouraging for promoting stability and peace in the area.
