Rice Transplanting Season starts in Nepal

Rice crop is the major food crop of Nepal. The rice production in Nepal is expected to decrease by around nine percent this year due to drought during the period of plantation, local Nepal Samacharpatra daily reported here on Monday.
The paddy production will decrease by 8.9 percent as per the field survey carried out by officials at the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperative (MoAC) and World Food Organization ( WFO), the vernacular newspaper reported quoting MoAC sources.It is mainly due to the water stress in the rice growing period. A genetic research is thus necessary to uplift the rice production to achieve the food sovereignty in Nepal.
