Agri – Tourism in Remote areas of Nepal

Nepal is the landlocked agricultural country, sandwiched between the two largest South Asian countries, the People’s Republic of China to the north and India to the east, south and west .Agriculture is the major source of livelihood for 81% of the population and contributes nearly 49% the Total Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Rice maize, wheat, pulses, oilseeds, potato, vegetable and fruits are the most important crops.

Until the mid 1980s, agricultural production technologies were primitive and production system was subsistence based. With increasing population pressure and the impact of the so called “green revolution” , the need for adoption of improved technologies has been widely realized at all levels(planers to rural farmers). Use of new technologies has increased crop intensities, and has led to the adoption of high yielding varieties and high chemical input. These practices have lead not only to increased production and productivity and greater monetary returns to the farmers but has also invited severe problems such as increasing concentration of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere, land degradation, frequent occurrences of floods and droughts, desertification and contamination of resources have become subjects of serious global concerns. Depleting ozone layers, changing climate, redistribution of rainfall or global water, rising sea level, resettlement of coastal communities and loss of biodiversity are being debated.

We promote organic agriculture practiced through the biodynamic philosophy. We are dedicated to professionally empowering the poor society and to protecting the ecosystems of the national and international.
