The main objective of this magazine is to inform and include those people who are doing commercial farming or thinking to involve themselves in the agriculture sector and develop it as a profession.
No doubt information is power and agriculture is the backbone of Nepali economy; unfortunately agriculture sector is the marginalized sector from the Nepali media. Though, it provides employment opportunities to 66 percent of the total population and contributes about 39 percent in the GDP with 13 percent of the total foreign trade of the country; why they are not getting proper advocacy for the needy things like fertilizer, government policy, subsidy and many more. This is the main thing which knocked our team for this magazine and our journey till now assure that it will establish as a milestone in commercial agriculture sector.
Agriculture has now become one of the most important sector of Nepal and many youth and rest of the people are focusing on the agriculture. INGO, NGO as well as Nepal government including private sector is focusing on the agriculture. That's why there is no debate "agricultural area is booming day by day". In the same time the definition of farmer is also changing. Now people are shifting from traditional farming to commercial farming.
For the growth of the agriculture sector, there must be up to date information about the market, technology, seeds, fertilizer and many more. It can be a platform of advertisement for the service and trading business related to agriculture to reach related target group, which is targeted towards 66% population of Nepal.
We have plans for organizing Agriculture Expos and Trade fairs on coming days.
