KATHMANDU: Agronomists have said the growth of the agro products is declining year by year due to growing use of chemical fertilisers, insecticides and expensive seeds.
The seeds imported are not suited Nepali soil, and the use of insecticide is making crops fruitless. Although the use brings some increase in the first year, the product begins to decline from the second year, they pointed.
At an orientation organised on food rights and security for the farmers by the National Food Rights' Network here on Saturday, the farmers were suggested using home grown seeds, compost and meager insecticide instead of the imported improved seeds and chemical fertilisers.
Dr Keshav Khadka and Bhesh Raj Adhikari informed the farmers about food rights.
