Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) has coded 60 types of plants scientifically. The coding started from 2012.
One can get information about a plant that is coded from anywhere in the world through internet, said NAST’s scientist Ram Chandra Poudel.
Until some years ago, the coding could not progress as expected due to various reasons. “Nowadays, the NAST is coding 10 to 15 types of plants a year,” said Poudel.
