How plant science improved household incomes in Nepal

Between 2003 and 2011 Plant & Food Research, in partnership with the Nepal Agricultural Research Council (NARC), Department of Livestock Services (DLS), Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, with financial support from The United Nations Food and Agricultural Organisation (UN-FAO) and the NZ Aid Programme of MFAT, has been involved in a programme designed to develop sustainable animal fodder systems for improving household incomes in Nepal.

The goal of the project was to build technical capacity and familiarisation with fodder technology packages for on-farm winter and summer fodder crop production in order to alleviate poverty and improve rural livelihoods in six geographically distinct districts of Nepal, as our latest video below explains.
