Nepal's agriculture is overwhelmed by subsistence family farms. Seventy-eight percent farm holdings have been reported to be producing mainly for home consumption. Organic agriculture is not a new concept of cultivation but has been practiced since ancient times in Nepal but it is a very common word in Nepali agriculture sector. Organic farming is the most original form of agriculture and has been in practice from the pre historic times. Though, during the Industrial revolution, the use of inorganic methods was introduced extensively but these methods mere not that developed and had serious side effects and severe problems such as increasing concentration of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere, land degradation; frequent occurrences of floods and droughts, desertification and contamination of resources have become subjects of serious global concerns. Depleting ozone layers, changing climate, redistribution of rainfall or global water, rising sea level, resettlement of coastal communities and loss of biodiversity are being debated.
