Department of Agriculture

        Agriculture is the back bone of the country. Majority of the people are engaged in agriculture. The land of Terai is very much fertile and productive. In the absence of agricultural skills and techniques, the farmers are not able to get a higher yield of crops which they expected. In addition, the erratic pattern of rainfall and increasing temperature has affected the growth of crops. Emergence of new disease and pests, weeds, lack of techniques, sufficient human resources etc. are the major causes for reducing the yield. Therefore, PSD-Nepal is aimed to support the rural farmers by providing on-site agricultural trainings on crop development, quality seeds for better production and idea for controlling the disease and pests in a biological way. PSD-Nepal conducts eco- friendly activities for sustainable agriculture and development.
