Agriculture is the backbone of our national economy, means of livelihood for majority of population, main source of GDP, income and employment opportunities in Nepal. At present, it alone contributes about 27 % to national GDP and provides part and full time employment opportunities to almost 65 % of its population.
We see tremendous efforts made by government, national and international organizations (non-profit) and private sectors for agriculture modernization but we are not being able to see significant changes in improving farmers’ income. We are still lacking behind in terms of interventions and adoption of commercialization in agriculture. Agriculture experts see immense opportunities in Nepalese agriculture sector and recommends that if we want to modernize our subsistence farming system and increase farms’ income, then science and technology based collaborative efforts from related stakeholders have to be put forward for harvesting maximum benefit from this sector.
