Located in the scenic Biratnagar, Gyan Udhyan is an innovative unit of agricultural labs and farms that was conceived in 1972 ,as a vision to elevate the backbone of the Nepalese economy.
The inception of this notable venture is owed to Mr KL Dugar’s long-standing passion for agriculture and nature. Translating from his visionary interests in cultivating land with scientific gardening, plantations, the Gyan Udhyan farms use a hybrid approach to grow food grains, exotic fruits and vegetables with scientific techniques.
Under the guidance of Mr. KL Dugar, this initiative has witnessed the first coconut farm in the Eastern Nepal as well as a flourishing sandalwood plantation. Furthermore, the foundation of this initiative aims to impart modern agricultural education to the farmers with an aim to refine and update their skills.
The impact created by Ghyan Udhyam has been appreciated by Majesty King Birendra Bir Bikram Shah and various other ministers and political dignitaries from across the pan-Asian region as an example of impeccable innovation.
