Sustainable agricultural development for small farmers in Nepal: myth or reality?

Sustainable agricultural development for small farmers in Nepal: myth or reality?

Outlook on Agriculture 25(2): 89-94

This paper uses linear programming techniques to explore the economic sustainability of small farming systems in the Terai, Nepal. Three farm planning models were developed, representing the existing farm plan, the optimum plan under non-irrigated conditions and the optimum plan under irrigated conditions. Optimization of the three models was conducted for small, medium, large and largest farm size groups.
