Valley Krishi Campus is affiliated to Agriculture and Forestry University (AFU), Rampur, Chitwan and located at Godawari Municipality-11, Chapagaun, Bajrabarahi, Lalitpur, Province-03, Nepal, in the vicinity of sacred Bajrabarahi temple and Bajrabarahi forest. Moreover, near to Nepal Agriculture Research Council (NARC), Khumaltar, Lalitpur. It’s peripheral district like Kavrepalanchok, Sindhupalchowk, Makawanpur, Bhaktapur, and Dhading have been ever booming for urban and peri-urban agriculture as well. It is regarded as agricultural-hub of southern Lalitpur and eminent for commercial production of different agricultural items like: milk, vegetables, tea, coffee, fish, flowers, poultry, and mushroom etc. A well organized and coordinated effort in village level and organizational level could lead this to be a highly potential area for agro-tourism.
This campus aims to fulfil the high demand of technical manpower of agriculture sector both in local-level as well as in national-level. The demand of the agriculture graduates is very high in the government sector, Nepal Agriculture Research Council (NARC), Teaching Institutes, Nurseries and vegetable farms, organized private sectors industries, etc. Additionally, new areas of opportunities are available for the agriculture graduates at non-governmental organizations, research stations, cooperatives, as well as in private practices in and around farming community. Brain drain and labour migration is the biggest problem of our country. So, the production of the technical manpower would attract the youths for entrepreneurship which creates employment opportunities within a country. The campus is quite hopeful to contribute the national economy by producing technical manpower and creating the avenues for youths to engage in better sustainable livelihood and entrepreneurship.
The process of agricultural production has become increasingly complex and therefore, requires modern scientific knowledge in the field of research and its practical extension. Unless the skilled workforce is available to support the progress, agriculture modernization, commercialization and sustainable agriculture will be out of reach. The proposed Program of Valley Krishi Campus will contribute to harness modern technology in agricultural sector by research, by introducing modern and innovative tools, techniques and methods.
