Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir government has created high-tech poly-houses in a bid to boost vegetable cultivation.

"These high-tech poly-houses with a cost of Rs 10 lakh have been installed under the Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY) scheme sponsored by the Central government, with latest features like humidity control, a fogger system, temperature controller and heating system for harsh winters," Zahoor Ahmad, Agricultural Assistant of the Kitchen garden scheme told ANI.

He said the new poly-houses will cover more than 2000 square feet area.

"The new high-tech poly-house covers an area of 2000 square feet and has the latest agricultural equipment. This system can give us a much higher yield at a better quality. We do not need to depend on the natural processes to grow our vegetables. With the new equipment, we can grow fresh vegetables at night and even during the off-season," he said.
