Agricultural extension in the hills of Nepal: ten years of experience from Pakhribas Agricultural Centre

, : Agricultural extension in the hills of Nepal: ten years of experience from Pakhribas Agricultural Centre. Network Paper, Agricultural Administration Research and Extension Network, Overseas Development Institute, UK (4): i + 30

Pakhribas Agriculture Centre (PAC) was set up in 1973 with UK finance, initially as an agricultural training centre for ex-Gurka soldiers. Its research and extension activities expanded over the years, and proposals to incorporate it into the broader Nepal research and extension services provided the opportunity to review progress during this early period of comparative freedom in devising its own extension methods and organizations.
