Agriculture plays a dominant role in the Nepalese economy and constitutes a major portion of the gross domestic product (GDP). During the eighties, Nepal was recognised as a net exporter of food grains. However, the country has been increasingly importing food grains in recent years as the population has grown and agricultural growth has been low. Increase in crop production in the past was mainly due to expansion in the area under cultivation rather than an increase in productivity.
Since irrigation development is capital intensive, it is essential to derive maximum benefits from the created infrastructure by properly utilising every unit of water in order to achieve optimal returns from irrigated agriculture in terms of crop production and yields.
