KATHMANDU, OCT 16 – India has agreed to support Nepal in implementing organic farming and soil health cards.

The soil health card, which is widely implemented in India, is particularly a crop-wise recommendation of nutrients and fertilisers required for farms, so that farmers can use inputs accordingly and raise the productivity. The plan was announced during Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Nepal in the first week of August.
