Kashmiri Muslim farmers harvest strawberries at a farm on May 23, 2014 in Gousoo on the outskirts of Srinagar, the summer capital of Indian administered Kashmir, India. Kashmir's strawberries are the first fruit crops that come to market and fetch a good price. Strawberry growers are sighting unfavorable weather for incurred crop losses this year after losing an estimated 80 percent of the crop. With unprecedented rains in Kashmir, which extends beyond the usual winter months that end in February, horticulturists have grown concerned as experts have predicted the unusual weather will greatly impact the strawberry crops considered the worst hit this year. Kashmir, where 600,000 households with three million people are involved in horticulture and allied trades, has seen continuous, heavy precipitation this year that has continued even with the onset of spring.
