Baramulla: Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed, Tuesday, ordered trial test of a newly patented technology which offers dramatic results in firmness and doubles fruit shelf-life in non-controlled room temperature environment.
He directed Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences, Kashmir, (SKUAST-K) to test the low cost-high result technology, which is being reportedly used in maintaining quality of 80 per cent US apple. SKUAST will carry out trial experiments after working out modalities to see if our fruit growers can use this new technological intervention, he added.
