Mr Kshatri studied the selection and management of multi-purpose fodder tree species for use in the Himalayan foothills. In Nepal, land degradation due to overexploitation of natural forest is a serious problem. Mr Kshatri based his study on indigenous knowledge derived from workshop discussions with local Nepalese farmers. He then worked in Nepal and New Zealand on the establishment, longevity and biomass production of fodder trees and the nutritive value to lactating buffalo and the palatability to sheep of alternative browse trees. Mr Kshatri believes that both the methods used and the results obtained will have a significant impact by informing researchers and development workers of the scope for land restoration and stability of livestock production in Nepal
