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.
