Introducing resilient seeds and climate-responsive agriculture is one way to improve country’s agricultural output

Nepal's Ministry of Agricultural Development Spokesperson Uday Chandra Thakur told Ekantipur that the ministry has implemented early warning system since last year to reduce vulnerability of drought and other agriculture-climate events. “The project’s task is to update on agriculture-climate risk by adopting a monitoring and early warning system to give advance notice of coming hazards. Timely information can help farmers to make crop-saving decisions and plant appropriate crops,” says Thakur.
