While women are highly involved in agriculture, there is still an existing divide between men and women in Nepal’s farming and household labour. There are defined roles for both men and women as to what is deemed socially acceptable (FAO, 2010). In Nepal, the highest level of agricultural involvement for women is in the hills and mountainous regions (FAO, 2010). This is an ideal combination of climate and location for the hemp as the climate is preferable for the crop to thrive (Clarke, 2007). As previously discussed, this is a resistant crop that requires minimal pesticide inputs and no herbicides (Mitchell, 2013). A major drawback however, is that the hemp seed is sold at a relatively high price. It is also an annual crop and therefore must be properly stored in order to be processed again (Mitchel, 2013). For women in particular, this is a feasible option of as it could be grown in a smaller plot or garden, and create an alternative income. With an extra income in the hands of a woman, this could have as large of an impact as being able to send her child to school.
