The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) today announced the expansion to Nepal of two successful Indian agricultural programs that promote food security and economic growth.

 

Under a partnership between USAID/Nepal and USAID/India, Nepali smallholder farmers’ access to mechanized farming technologies—such as low-cost attachments to tractors that increase farmers’ agricultural yields and income—will increase.  This partnership will also strengthen Nepal’s Agriculture and Forestry University and ensure that its curriculum focuses on the needs of farmers and agricultural markets.
