Agriculture is the major sector of Nepalese economy. It provides employment opportunities to 66 percent of the total population and contributes about 36 percent of the GDP. Therefore, the development of agriculture sector is crucial for the development of national economy. Nepalese Agriculture is mainly subsistence type. People practice integrated agriculture. We can find livestock, crops and other enterprise going side by side. This is a very sustainable concept and works without deteriorating nature but it needs some commercialization and output maximization.
If you love Nepalese rural life then you must see how people are involved in farming. Once you see closely Nepalese rural agriculture you will understand how sustainably they are practicing farming. Besides, volunteering in Agriculture would be a great opportunity for you to learn local knowledge, culture, and way of living. Volunteers interested in Sustainable agriculture, low external input sustainable agriculture or traditional type of agriculture can have a real experience of such agriculture practice in our farms or villages where we are working.
