Kailali farmers to receive grants to begin wheat farming on 1,335 hectares land


KAILALI : Farmers in Tikapur, Kailali district will receive grants to begin wheat cultivation on 1,335 hectares of lands. The Rani Jamara Kulariya Irrigation Project will provide these grants to help in wheat farming.

As many as 600 farmers will benefit from the farming. Initially, the project had a plan to expand wheat farming on 235 hectares of lands. However, the volume of the lands for the farming increased following farmers’ demand, said Dilip Jung Rana, planning officer and informant officer at the project. “600 farmers wanting to start farming on over minimum 10 kattha of lands have been selected. They have started farming.”

Wheat farming spanning 685 hectares of lands and 650 hectares will be used to grow seeds. The project will provide a 50 percent grant on the production of seeds. Various 12 seed production cooperatives and companies will produce seeds under the command of the project, he said.

The project has launched various other programmes to attract youths to agriculture. “The project provided assistance to farmers to begin farming. They will receive grants and technical help to do farming,” said local farmer Rupesh Jaisi.

The project provides grants and farming aid on various agricultural products like seasonal or off-seasonal vegetable farming, banana farming, mushroom farming and carrot farming.
