Himachal Pradesh chief minister Virbhadra Singh released two books, titled 'Seb Bagwaani Aur Vividhikaran' and 'Historical Profile of Regional Horticultural Research Station (RHRS), Mashobra and temperate fruit production' [written by Vijay Singh Thakur, associate director (research and extension), and his team of scientists from RHRS, Mashobra, Shimla of Y S Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan].

Lauding Thakur and his team for their hard work and efforts to publish the books, Singh said they would be useful to the state's farming community, research scholars and horticulturists. The chief minister added that the authors had penned vital information about fruit culture and management of orchards of temperate fruit (including apples, cherries and pears) in simple language, and answered over 500 questions frequently asked by farmers.

Singh stated that horticulture has always been a vital sector and a key economic activity, and it has been the priority for successive Congress governments in the northern state. He added that there is an urgent need to rejuventate orchards that are old and on the decline with the latest varieties having higher production capabilities. The chief minister also stressed upon the scientific community to come up with research and development (R&D) efforts.
