Lolab Valley Kashmir
Lolab valley is situated at the northernmost part of the Indian Kashmir, in kupwara district. It’s adjacent to Neelum valley in Azad kashmir to it’s north at 34 degrees North and altitudes ranging from 4000 to 10000 ft.The valley is known for producing one of the zenith qualities young and herbs as of it’s exclusive wet-cold climate which will be further discussed.This valley has been subjected to many war like situations due to being becoming at the line of control between India and Pakistan. Lolab Valley is categorized among one of the off beat destinations in Kashmir and is one of the best places to visit in Kashmir.
Lolab Valley Kashmir
The dwell found in the zone of the Middle Mountains and the valleys enclosed is of a particular stamp. Altitude determines the grade of coolness and altitude the form of precipitation and summer-tree mixture. Winter is cold and of long duration. When the monsoons are strong, rain is purpose. In higher mountains orbed the valley of Kashmir, winter is very frigid and there is blizzard. Summer is very short and milder. The climate in the Valley of Kashmir has its own peculiarities. Winter is very cold. It lasts from November to March. During these months forcible winds bring snow and rain from the Mediterranean depressions. These come over from Iran and Afghanistan. Spring begins after 15th of March when rain falls heavily. It causes landslides. But for sowing crops this lavish is extremely useful. Rainfall in July and August is as high as 70% and with summer temperature, it causes discomfort. The lakes and waterways make the atmosphere damp and oppressive. The entire valley is covered with a dimness that hides the surrounding mountains from view. Seasons in Lolab Valley March 15 to May 15. Spring May 15 to July 15 Summer. July 15 to Sept. 15 Rainy Sept. 15 to Nov. 15 Autumn. Nov.15 to Jan 15. Winter– Jan. 15 to March 15. Ice Cold From December 24 to March 8 moderation is often below zero. Strong winds blow from south and southeast. It snows during winter and there are thick black clouds in the sky. Annual rainfall of the valley recorded is in the range of 600-1100 mm. It rains in March and April. June, July and August are the warmest months, state rises to 35.0 C. January and February are the coldest months; temperature falls down to -6.0 C, Longest sunshine hours are in September, October and November. December has 80% humidity which is the zenith and May has 71% which is the lowermost. Lolab canyon has an exceptional climate compared to other parts of kashmir with tremendously high levels of precipitation during slow summertide (monsoons) and spring.One of the most peculiar observations from the early veg limit was the affluence of cystolithic hair on the flap cuticle, leafstalk and stems. This peculiarity can be seen across the board regardless of plant morphology.
There are few other important qualitative traits which are extremely homogenised in this sort and will be discussed ahead.It gives the seedling a very whitish semblance during seedling stagecoach, it could be a response to marginal environment since the humidity never drops under 70% any month of the year it must create a sanctuary for pests and insects during grow time when these seedlings come out as well. During the vegetative growth Time it was observed that in most of the population leaves often contort in different directions and a very durable and aggressive phototropic answer. These plants augment mostly under cover in the pine and Fir jungles of Lolab canyon, it is noted that plants respond to catch the streaks of daylight penetrative through the woodland canopy by not only a phototropic response of the theme circumflexion towards a particular guide but also by contorting separate leaves in many directions to please as much escaped information on the forest floor as possible. As discussed in the dwell study Lolab Valley has an exceptional dwell in regards to high humidity which never drops below 70% throughout the year and mostly stays in high 80%. It’s acts as a natural testing zone for cannabis varieties in terms of mold and mildew because of growing and flowering in a wet-damp and mostly cloudy weather. However, the signs of adaptations can be accomplished in the bract formation (bud structure) which is very open like a pure illiberal inset equatorial sort and yet it finishes under 50 days with outstanding resin production. The open and delicate bract structure becomes of central importance when mitigating risks such as web decompose around floral bracts. Lolab valley, Landrace variety, is short season flowering plant that finishes under 50 days, with effects ranging from sedative to very cerebral. There are 2 basic types of vegetable in the Lolab spec canada population -Type I is a more thin leafed, taller and has wider inter-nodal space vs the Type II, which makes up for the part of the population with more compact edifice, broader leaves and shorter entomb-nodal distance. The plant develops a deep intense red stem during the flower onset and around 18-20% population has colored sap (frequent from light pink/pink to clear red). Despite the morphological changes every plant seems to have a apparent lemon smell complimented by either a sweet/floral lavender or pine. The lemon flavours develops upon drying curing and completely overwhelms the taste pallet. The male plants in the Lolab valley population seem to pseudanthium much faster and with flowering onset as fast as 48-72 hours from the light cycle change. The pollen is of white colour instead of pale yellow to lime greenish tarnish as commonly observed in cannabis. Although white coloured pollen has also been observed in many other varieties, but not a common occurrence. The staminate bracts swell up fast and spill copious amounts of pollen within 2nd week of flowering, most of the male plants develop streaks of red/purple colours on the staminate bracts. Male swindle develop a very similar deep Redstem and both of the type-I & II can be observed through the morphological variation in male population as well, which makes it easier to perform selections. The bomb smell is omnipresent in the chemo-type and highly suggestive of being one of the most homogenized traits amongst the Lolab hollow population. Which can be used as a admirable tool for breeding lemon flavours into new or existing cultivars.
