“For this, while on the one hand, we are promoting such industries and crops which can be easily planted in hilly areas, on the other hand, we are focusing on developing such techniques which can double the income of our farmers,” Pushkar Singh Dhami said
He expressed confidence that this Aroma Park will play an important role in setting up orchards of aromatic crops like cinnamon, Timur and Surai etc. in more than three lakh barren agricultural land, which will increase the production of aromatic plants on the one hand and on the other hand farmers will be benefited. Economic benefits will also be received.

Along with this, this centre will also prove effective in expanding our 1 district 2 product policy.

This will also help in the efforts to promote tourism and horticulture in the state along with heart tourism.
