In the recent past JK administration has launched a number of schemes for the turnaround in the agriculture and horticulture sectors so as to give a boost to the rural economy here.

He also launched Website of Organic Certification Agency; felicitates progressive farmers; releases Seed Dynamics book & Saffron Booklet
Veterinary Ambulatory Services also launched on the occasion and this service will help the villagers to get their animals to the nearest veterinary centers.
As a part of agricultural mechanization support to the farmers for broader economic transformation, he recently handed over sanction letters for 100 tractors to the farmers and 1035 threshers for Panchayats at Agriculture Complex, Lal Mandi.
He congratulated the beneficiary farmers and Panchayat members who received sanction letters and said that such facilities from the government will help them to increase the agricultural income and also will prove to be the right direction for them to get more produce in their fields.
The distribution of these tractors would be done by the panchayats in their villages and in turn these equipment will come into the fields to change the dynamics of farming.
