Farmers in Punjab, Haryana, and Rajasthan are diversifying into kinnow, a citrus fruit resembling orange, for higher returns.

 The area has been increasing in the semi-arid zones due to the flourishing market in the south. About 4,000 hectares in the area. Cotton and wheat farmers are also diversifying into kinnow. Close to 2,200 acres in Punjab, 1,100 acres in Haryana, and 700 acres in Rajasthan are being added a year.

 Since kinnow fruit grows every alternate season, this year is off. So despite the addition of plants (gestation: five years) in the fruit-bearing stage, the total output may remain slightly lower than last year's.
