Important factors contributing to vegetable farming for income generation in Nepal: a review
Vegetable farming and engaging in retail sales have become a lucrative source of income for Nepali farmers in recent years, especially for women. Government schemes and international support have encouraged vegetable production, yet most smallholder farmers still face multiple constraints that hinder commercialization. In this study seven factors are identified that have the potential to generate reliable income from vegetable farming. Past accomplishments and prevailing problems are presented based on information collected from published works over the past 10-20 years with the aim of seeking possible solutions in the Nepali context.
