Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the circumstance surrounding and the change in cultivated crop varieties regarding rice and potatoes in the rural Nepalese area of Sankhu Village. A survey of the area was conducted in 2011 in order to make a comparison with the crop varieties cultivated in 1997.The survey showed that in terms of rice, Masuli and Taichung have been cultivated from 1997 to 2011. More than 85% of the total farming area of rice is occupied by old two varieties. In contrast, in terms of potatoes, a new variety-Janakdev-has almost replaced the traditional varieties. Janakdev has a greater disease resistance, it is not so susceptible to late blight, and it has a good taste. Farmers interviewed in this survey said that the reasons for changing potato varieties were : (1) strength of disease resistance (44%), and (2) increased yield (44%). Considering that strong disease tolerance leads to higher yield, it seems that when farmers select cultivated crop varieties about potatoes, they emphasize the strength of disease tolerance of each variety.
