Ladakh introduces greenhouse technology to grow vegetables in harsh condition

Ladakh has built 1,875 eco-friendly greenhouses with a total cost of Rs 43.78 crore

The Union Territory of Ladakh has built 1,875 eco-friendly greenhouses with a total cost of Rs 43.78 crore. These greenhouses are designed to help farmers grow vegetables such as cauliflower, cabbage, tomato, and various types of green leafy vegetables even during the harsh winter months. This information was shared by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) with Rajya Sabha.

Ladakh has introduced a new technology called “Ladakh Green House” to grow vegetables in a limited quantity and in a controlled environment throughout the year.

Nityanand Rai, the Union Minister of State for Home, provided a written response to a question posed by a parliamentarian regarding the Union Territory of Ladakh. The parliamentarian asked whether Ladakh, an area known for its extremely harsh winters and short crop growing season of approximately five months, has implemented any new techniques to address this issue.

According to the Minister, “Ladakh is a cold region, which makes it difficult to cultivate crops and vegetables during the winter season as the temperature often drops below -20 degrees Celsius. However, the Minister replied that farmers in the region can now grow vegetables even during the peak winter season when the temperature plummets below -30 degrees Celsius, thanks to the introduction of new technology.”
