Pineapple As Alternate Cropping To Control Soil Erosion In Nepal
PDF File Size: 22 KB | Download   
Farmers in hilly areas of Nepal witness high variability in crop yields due to adverse weather conditions and loss of fertile soil because of erosion. Overall environmental degradation constitutes a further hazard for the growth of maize, which is the main crop in mid-hill districts Of Nepal, such as Udaipur. Furthermore, recent experiences have shown a reduction in the yield due to longer droughts even during the monsoon period (between June and September), not only reducing the yield of maize in the hills, but also the productivity of agricultural land in the valley because of sedimentation. In this context, farmers in the region, as in the case of the Bengri village cultivate pineapple instead of maize, in an effort to reduce the rate of soil erosion and improve the use of degraded land for additional income generation.
