Parbat district had also witnessed good paddy production last year compared to the previous year.
With the better output, the farmers in Parbat are excited during the time of harvesting. Chief of the Centre, Basudev Regmi, shared that timely seedling plantation in paddy pocket areas and continued rainfall contributed to better yielding.
