In the fertile south of Nepal, farmers have been facing a second year of inadequate rice harvest. Last year flash floods destroyed crops. This year a shortage of fertilizer and monsoon rains resulting in the inability to adequately prepare the ground for rice planting. Food shortages are expected later this year. Many farmers have begun leaving their farms in search of more predictable income, which in turn means there are not enough people in the agriculture industry which will impact the next year’s planting. Pray for a new beginning to break this cycle. Pray for better agricultural solutions to ensure adequate provision for the population (The Bible, Ecclesiastes 3:1-2).
