Ginger

Ginger is indigenous to the Indo-China region, with Nepal being one of the most suitable countries for its production. An estimated 200,000 farmers produce 250,000 t/y of which the poor produce 30%. Ginger is mainly cultivated in the mid-hills, where many of the socially excluded groups reside, including Janajatis and Dalits.

Vegetables

The Vegetable sector has an immense poverty reduction potential in Nepal because of high, unmet domestic demand and the potential for net import substitution from neighboring countries - especially India.  The sector also has high potential to benefit disadvantaged communities.
The sector, however, is constrained by low adoption rate of high quality seeds; lack of access to and informed choice of the use of other inputs such as agrochemicals; highly informal and fragmented trade in inputs and produce; and limited aggregation of vegetables at local level.
