The study is a part of ICRISAT/DFID research project on IPM of chickpea adoption and its impact on livelihood, improvement of family income, nutrition and poverty elimination in Nepal. We are thankful to the executive director, scientists and field staff of Nepal Agricultural Research Council (NARC), Regional Resesarch Station (RRS), Khajura, and National Oil-seed Research Programme (NORP), Nawalpur, who helped in conducting the field surveys. Our sincere thanks to RN Chaudhary, Baidhyanath Jha and TB Ghemeray of NORP, VK Dutta, Rameshwaran Maharjan, DN Pokherial and S Mahatto of RRS. We shall remain thankful to the 304 farmers who participated in the IPM of chickpea research and development. We are also thankful to Pavan Pandey and Madhu Mishra for final computer processing. The coordination of the production process by TR Kapoor is gratefully acknowledged.


Empowerment Through Enrichment is the second information bulletin and is the part of the Project on ‘IPM of chickpea in Nepal’. It contains information about the mid-term evaluation of the project. This is in continuation of the first study, Chickpea Production Constraints and Promotion of Integrated Pest Management in Nepal. The mid-term evaluation revealed that the success of adoption of IPM technology was due to socio economic emancipation of peasants, freedom from the clutches of usurers and poorest among the poor being benefited. Market linkage strengthened farmer’s faith in technologies. Since the chickpea is highly remunerative as a crop of rice fallow lands in winter (rabi), the technology is fast spreading to other villages. Sustainable environment will make the intervention spread faster. Removal of poverty by IPM-chickpea in Nepal is quantified in the third bulletin, Wealth Generation through Chickpea Revolution.
