Crop Situation Update-September 2006, issue 2
PDF File Size: 360 KB | Download   
The period from August to September marks the growing and early harvesting
period for paddy and maize. The crop situation update provides a brief overview on the current crop situation and outlook for these main crops, particularly in the 32 districts covered by surveillance activities of the food security monitoring and analysis system. The previous issue of the Crop Situation Update (August 2006) provided two scenarios regarding the expected decline in paddy production. Scenario I estimated a total loss in national rice production of 527,000 mt. Scenario II, based on more optimistic assumptions, estimated the decline to be 285,000 mt. Based on field observations from WFP field monitors, a paddy production status map (Map 1) was prepared showing the current status of the paddy production at the district level. Out of the 32 district surveyed by WFP, three (Ramechhap, Salyan and Dadeldhura)expect an increase in paddy crop production, while in 12 districts the situation is comparable to last year’s. Key districts of concern are Bajura Kalikot and Rukum, where WFP is currently implementing an Emergency Operation as a response to the drought which severely affected the winter crops.
