Prospects of Feed Crops in Nepal: The Role of CGPRT Crops


  • Maharjan, Bekha Lal


The objective of the study was to analyze the trends of demand and supply for animal feeds including the factors that determine production and consumption of feed crops. Other objectives are: (1) To evaluate potentials and constraints for expanding feed crop farming; and (2) To formulate recommendations for policy options to promote the sustainable development of feed crop farming. The method of study involved the collection of data through rapid rural appraisal and group discussions with stakeholders, including livestock farmers, scientists and feed manufacturers. There was interaction with policy makers and planners related to feed crop production, feed prices and production of livestock products. Secondary data on population, income, prices, consumption and production of feeds was also reviewed during the study period. A log-linear regression model was developed and analysis of data was carried out using e-view software for evaluating the co-efficient of feed crop demand and supply.
