Shimla | This year the apple season will start 25 days late in the state. The drop in temperature is said to be the main reason for this. Apple crop is weak this year due to unseasonal rains, snowfall and hailstorm. But the gardeners are hopeful of getting a good price for it.
Horticulture expert SP Bhardwaj has advised the gardeners not to be in a hurry in plucking apples. He said that paying attention to the quality of apples, one should avoid unnecessary spraying on them. Do not rush to pluck apples. Wait for the apples to increase in size and turn into their natural color.
