Seed producers in Dailekh start selling seeds, fungicides and insecticides to local farming communities

District: 
Dailekh

Yuva Vayus in Dailekh have been linked with the local agrovet so they can sell seeds, fungicides and insecticides to local farming communities. Yuva Vayus purchase goods from the agrovet on 30 days credit and earn commission on sales.

The Yuva Vayus are all farmers in CONNECT partner Hatemalo Seed Promotion Cooperative's (HSPC) supply chain, and have received training from HSPC staff.  Now, in addition to sharing their new skills and knowledge with farmers in their communities, they can support the shift to commercial agriculture by selling agricultural inputs at the farm gate. 

Similarly, Yuva Vayus in Belpata Dairy Cooperative's supply chain are selling veterinary medicines to farmers in their communities, earning commission between 2 and 10%.
