KATHMANDU: Prime Minister (PM) Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said that the government has been implementing different programs including expansion of irrigation supply, grants on chemical fertilizer and seeds, expansion of modern technology, research and development, among others to increase the production of paddy.

Giving a message on the occasion of Paddy Day on Friday, he cautioned that the target of paddy production could be affected due to impacts of climate change–drought, heavy rain, scanty rain, natural disasters and spread of diseases–and pose challenges to our food security.

Against this backdrop, the PM has underscored the need for the development of climate-resilient species of paddy and the development of new technology for the increment of paddy production to substitute the import of rice and paddy in the country and remain self-reliant.
