Nepal is an agricultural country. About 80% of the people’s occupation is agriculture. Trade is also mainly of agricultural products. Agriculture provides raw materials for the industries. With the help of good manure, seeds, equipment and irrigation the growth of crops is increased in large quantity. Agriculture is known as the backbone of economy of Nepal. Agriculture occupation consists of three types: food crops, cash crops and mixed crops. Beside this, there are Livestock, Horticulture and Fishery. VIN’s agro/eco farm concept is based on low-external inputs and sustainable farming practices, which allow farmers to integrate different technical elements into the system. It will support to produce crops for both, home consumption and income generation. In Nepal agriculture is the main source of income of the people. However farmers are unaware about modern technology and multiple farms. Many local youth are migrating to other countries for labour. There is a big force of unemployed youth in the country. The main aim of this project is to provide opportunity to youth to get involved into the project.
