Krishi Prabidhi is the product of Nepal Seed and Fertilizer project which aim to facilitate sustainable increases in national crop productivity, economic welfare and household-level food security, working in 20 Feed the Future Zone of Influence districts and in five earthquake-affected districts. The project will achieve its objectives through the use of improved seeds and Integrated Soil Fertility Management (ISFM) technologies approved and registered by the Government of Nepal.

The Feed the Future’s Nepal Seed and Fertilizer project aims to increase availability of technologies to improve productivity in maize, rice, lentils, and high value vegetable farming. The project will work to improve capacity of both the public and private sectors in their respective roles for technology development and its in-country dissemination.

The project is led by the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and collaborates with different divisions of the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development (MOALD) and private sector. To effectively reach women farmers and marginalized social groups, the project will also seek value- driven collaboration with USAID’s development partners in raising awareness and improving access to agricultural inputs and services.
