  • Institute of Agriculture and Animal Science (IAAS) is located at southern part of central Nepal

  • IAAS is the only institute for postgraduate program in agriculture and animal sciences in Nepal.

  • Aquaculture is the one of the departments that runs master program and started since 1999 with one student with very limited facilities (laboratory and research fields).


Acrsp work in nepal l.jpg

ACRSP Work in Nepal

  • As ACRSP extended its regional sites from Southeast Asia to South and Southeast Asia, IAAS started involvement in ACRSP in 2001.

  • Four research projects have been conducted in IAAS:
