The activity was attended by more than 100 farmers from Hardinath, Nepal; representatives from government organizations; and Forward, an NGO of Dhanusha District, Nepal. The field day provided farmers and scientists to interact at a gathering in NRRP after the field visits. A joint seed production program among FORWARD, NRRP-Hardinath, and the Agriculture Development Office of Dhanusha District was also launched to make seeds of the drought- and submergence-tolerant varieties available locally for the current rice-growing season.
