Nepal’s Ginger Farmers to be the Winners in Plans to Expand International Trade
PDF File Size: 449 KB | Download   
In a major milestone for the project, a ginger washing and processing plant is expected to open in the next few months in Jhapa district, in eastern Nepal. The plant will add value to ginger exported from Nepal, particularly in the target districts of Morang, Jhapa, Ilam and Panchthar, and allow farmers to earn higher export prices, with the potential to boost farm income by 30 percent.
In response, FAO is planning to help farmers repair small scale irrigation systems, to support agricultural production and supply water for households and animals. Almost
three-quarters of households using irrigation reported substantial to severe damage to their water schemes after the earthquakes. If not repaired quickly, this will seriously affect winter food production, including the staple crop of wheat. This support will be delivered through a community based, cash-for-work approach.
