Mechanization

The agricultural sector remains largely dependent on traditional methods of cultivation - using bullocks and farmhands. Often, plots are left fallow during peak agricultural seasons, due to the shortage of labor.

Mechanization is currently limited mainly to larger farms in the Terai. It is particularly inadequate in the mid-hills of Nepal, due to the unavailability of machinery suitable for use in the narrow and sloped terrain. Only an estimated 15% of productive farmland in the mid-hills is prepared by mechanized means.

Tourism

Tourism is a vital component of the economy of Nepal. With its iconic attractions, strategic location and good connectivity; Nepal is ideal for a characteristic short-holiday from regional markets. In addition, adventure tourism (including trekking) is growing rapidly, across both traditional and new source markets, creating good income generating opportunities for the poor in rural Nepal.
