National Rice Research Program, Hardinath Dhanusha works with the objective of developing high yielding disease resistant rice varieties suited to different rice production environment and domains and generating low cost package of practices for profitable rice and rice based cropping systems. Research and monitoring activities are focused towards the development of integrated pest and nutrient management practices that would effectively address the problems of environmental hazards and yield losses in rice.
Implementation of ICT based services for effective extension linkage can prove to be a significant milestone in achieving the vision of adaptable and sustainable rice production technologies. The research achievements from NRRP will directly be disseminated among rice farmers of different agro-ecological zones of Nepal via digital system.
The system will be regularly updated by the organization and farmers can access all the information about rice farming in Dhan Guru Mobile Application.
