Nepal is an agricultural country, poorest in the world, most of the Nepalese farmers' lacking access to modern facilities/marketing and input support services. Worsen situations of the farmers' rights, food security, and access to policy development are some causes of poor performance of agricultural sectors. Creating access to information for farmers is essential to transform subsistence agriculture into commercialized farming. Hence the newsletter is making a good contribution in this sphere.
