Abstract:  Studies were conducted on status and distribution of wicker willow, locally known as Veer kani in Kashmir. Wicker willow plantations were found in all districts of Kashmir except Kupwara. Pulwama district had maximum average land holding of 0.80 ha and minimum in Srinagar (0.40 ha/family), concentration of plantation varied from district to district; maximum in Eastern Srinagar and Northern district Baramulla. Maximum families (23) were involved in Srinagar and minimum in Budgam (7). Maximum land holding/family under wicker willow was highest in Srinagar (0.12 ha) and lowest in Pulwama (0.07 ha/family). Maximum yield/ha of wicker willow was in Srinagar (12.69 t/ha) and minimum in Anantnag 11.20 t/ha. Subsequently, wicker willow contributed about 35.34% to the farmers average income in Srinagar as against lowest of 1.27% in Pulwama. Salix triandra L. was found grown in all districts except Kupwara. In addition to Salix triandra L., two more species Salix dickymat L. and Salix rubra L. were also cultivated in district Srinagar. Number of processing units varied from district to district and was maximum in Srinagar and Baramulla as against the minimum in Budgam, Anantnag and Pulwama.
