Jatropha Nurseries

Modern Nurseries for Jatropha Seedlings


AEPC is supporting 11 organizations to establish 10 modern nurseries where jatropha saplings can be grown and distributed. This is a key factor in the success of any mass cultivation programme.




Jatropha Plantation Training Program

Another key factor affecting the success of mass cultivation programmes is the ability of local farmers to get high yields from the jatropha crop. AEPC plans to provide training in jatropha plantation techniques to farmers in each of Nepal’s five development regions with the aim of establishing a base of 200 farmers trained in jatropha cultivation.

AEPC is working with 5 organizations to achieve this.
