Catalogue of Traditional Mountain Crop Landraces in Nepal
Authors: Rita Gurung, et. al.
This catalogue is a result of combined efforts of the people engaged actively and continuously in a UNEP/GEF funded project “Integrating traditional crop genetic diversity into technology: using a biodiversity portfolio approach to buffer against unpredictable environmental change in the Nepal Himalayas” being implemented in four districts Dolakha, Lamjung, Humla and Jumla of Nepal. This catalogue endeavours to gather and compile the information on local diversity of eight traditional mountain crops; amaranth, barley, naked barley, common bean, buckwheat, finger millet, foxtail millet and cold tolerant rice found in the project sites.
