Wheat and rice in the mid-hills of Nepal: A benchmark report on farm resources and production practices in Kavre District uri icon

abstract

  • This benchmark survey involved a random sample of 54 farmers from the Naldung area, grouped by altitude class, ethnicity, land type, and several farm-level categories to characterize sample variability for production practices and yield. The study identified soil fertility, crop establishment, and weed and pest management as key factors for maintaining high rice and wheat yields in the mid-hills of Nepal. Results are available in the form of an easily accessible database, and will allow researchers and policy-makers to track changes in farmers' resources, production practices, and system productivity
