Agriculture in Nepal

Nepalis major economic sector is agriculture. More than 80% of the population in Nepal are depended on agriculture. Nepal is a country of geographical diversity. Diverse types of crops and vegetables are grown here in different seasons ranging from lower land called Terai (60m) to High Himalayan region. Agriculture in Nepal is still done traditionally and it is just enough for survival.
Agricultural work in Nepal is taken as celebration and cultural practice. The cultural aspect of Nepali agriculture is so unique. Nepal celebrates different agriculture related festivals like ropai jatra (paddy plantation ceremony), Daai festival ( the paddy harvest ceremony). The nature worship and agricultural worship are part of animism which is still among farmers.
