Nepal poised to harvest largest ever paddy crop

Nepali farmers look set to harvest the largest paddy crop in history this fiscal year because of timely and sufficient monsoon rains, the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development said. Ministry officials added that a record harvest would bring down the country’s rice import bill besides significantly contributing to the government’s economic growth target as the economy is strongly dependent on farm production.
