As a part of the PIWWAI project, a refresher training for the Market Planning Committee was held at Melamchi on March 19, 2023. The training was attended by 17 participants, including MPC members, leader farmers, and other active farmers from various farmer groups in Melamchi.
It hasn't been long since the farmers have been practicing commercial farming. The issue is not limited to farming; one of the biggest problems farmers encounter is problem related to the market. To address such issues, the market planning committee was given refresher training. Dr. Ram Chandra Bhusal, Project Team Leader, discussed the MPC's roles and responsibilities, as well as the collection center's management mechanism. Similarly, Mr.Radha Krishna Shrestha, owner of Ugrachandi Krishi farm, shared his knowledge of vegetable production and marketing, as well as the collection center's operation mechanism. Likewise, Mr. Tika Prasad Dhungada, a local trader from Melamchi, shared his knowledge of the current market situation in Melamchi.
The opportunity to learn from an expert in the field aided the participants in comprehending the market's current situation. The training was successful to create a linkage between farmers and a trader. Understanding the current scenario, participants were able to select the market where they get better price for their produce.
MPC training will take place at Sunkoshi on March 22, 2023.
