Takeaways:

  • After more than ten years of growing hybrid seeds supplied by Monsanto, some farmers in Nepal are slowly returning to organic farming methods.
  • While not all farmers are on board, planting native crop varieties would require less use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides and would produce fruits and vegetables with more flavour.
  • The government is also supporting this push for organic farming including through subsidies for farmers.
