The Impact of Climate Change on Agriculture and Horticultural Crops in Jammu & Kashmir

Mohmad Ashraf Najar | Altaf Hussain Padder

Abstract: Disruption has been brought about by climate change everywhere. Despite having major economic ramifications, agriculture and horticulture are among the few industries impacted by it and are, hence getting less attention. Horticultural and agricultural crops are still being impacted by the increasing temperatures. Different crops have been affected in different ways: some are more expensive to raise, the quality of the soil deteriorates, the temperature changes, etc. The output of agriculture and horticulture crops has been impacted by climate change and several contributing variables, including drought, hailstorms, and excessive or insufficient rainfall. Crops like walnuts, saffron, apples, and others that need a certain climate to thrive and be cultivated have recently suffered in Jammu and Kashmir. In this research, we address the crops used in horticulture and agriculture in Jammu & Kashmir that have not been significantly impacted by climate change. The influence of climate change on agricultural and horticulture crops in Jammu & Kashmir was examined in this study using secondary sources from important research studies, publications, and journals. A particular emphasis was placed on the production of saffron and walnuts.
