Saffron production is confined to a limited geographical area in the State. Saffron has traditionally been associated with the famous Kashmiri cuisine, its medicinal values and the rich cultural heritage of Kashmir. Its role in enriching the local cuisine, its medicinal value and its use in important religious rituals is well known. However, Saffron production is currently suffering on several counts, especially those relating to productivity as well as post harvest management. This has resulted in lower production and poor quality.

شرة إعلانية حول حالة الغابات في العالم 2016</p> <p> تدعم الغابات والأشجار الزراعة المستدامة. فهي تثبّت التربة والمناخ وتنظّم تدفق المياه وتؤمّن الظلّ والمأوى وتوفر موئلاً للملقحات والحيوانات المفترسة الطبيعية للآفات الزراعية. وهي تساهم أيضاً في تحقيق الأمن الغذائي لمئات ملايين الأشخاص الذين تشكل بالنسبة إليهم مصادر هامة للأغذية والطاقة والدخل. ومع ذلك، لا تزال الزراعة تشكّل الدافع الرئيسي للتصحّر في العالم وغالباً ما تكون السياسات الزراعية والحرجية والمتعلقة بالأراضي مخالفة لها.

One of the legacies of saffron farming practice for centuries in and around the Pampore Karewas of Kashmir in India is that this ancient farming system continues to inspire family farmers and local communities through their livelihood security that it provides for more than 17,000 farm families. Kashmiri village women contribute to this agriculture heritage site through traditional tilling to flower picking over 3,200 hectares dedicated to the legendary saffron crop cultivation at Pampore.

Forests and trees support sustainable agriculture. They stabilize soils and climate, regulate water flows, give shade and shelter, and provide a habitat for pollinators and the natural predators of agricultural pests. They also contribute to the food security of hundreds of millions of people, for whom they are important sources of food, energy and income. Yet, agriculture remains the major driver of deforestation globally, and agricultural, forestry and land policies are often at odds.
