ISO: techniques for growing vegetables in monsoon season (Nepal)


Hello ECHO, first time caller here. I’m soon in Nepal to work with farmers who are interested in growing vegetables in the “off season” (in particular the rainy monsoon season, summer).

Looking for advice: managing heavy rainfall, soils to improve drainage, pest and disease issues, heat along with wet, post-harvest handling, useful tools…

Mostly subsistence farmers who would like to sell vegetables for local markets.

Thank you for your suggestions, resources, and responses!

Mike S


Hi Mike good resource here is from the Himalayan Permaculture Centre the Farmers’ Handbook - free downloads in English, and the Nepali printed version available from Sunrise Farm in Kathmandu. You can contact me at cevans(at) for more details, best Chris
