PIWAAI phase II (Agriculture component) has provided a total of 110 plastic houses to the beneficiaries, increasing off season tomato production by 50%. Besides tomatoes, PIWAAI saw the increase in the production of cucumber, seasonal cauliflower, and squash. 63.54% beneficiaries have benefited PIWAAI’s radio intervention that disseminates agriculture information from radio.
Though 82% of beneficiaries still face problems in marketing and selling their produce, PHASE III of PIWAAI project intervention shall be addressing these issues by operating two collection centers established at Melamchi and Sunkoshi and lead them by the Market Planning Committee. Dissemination of information will be more robust in the third year, along with refresher trainings that shall ensure persistence of commercializing agriculture in the project area.
