PDF File Size: 2.55 MB | Download   
Highlights:
1. The Crop Situation Update is published twice a year by the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MoAD), the World Food Programme (WFP), and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). It is one component of the Nepal food security monitoring system (NeKSAP), which is supported by the European Union.
2. The Ministry of Agricultural Development (MoAD) estimates total production of winter crops (wheat and barley) at 2.0 million mt, an increase of 10.86 percent compared to the preceding five-year average (the normal level) and 4.95 percent compared to the 2013/14 season. As in the 2013/14 season, the central region recorded the largest share of wheat production (32.6 percent of the total), with 644,063 mt of wheat produced.
3. According to the Trade and Export Promotion Centre (TEPC), the value of foreign trade during the first eight months of the fiscal year 2071/72 (July – March 2014/15) stood at 561.9 billion NPR, an increase of 6.7 percent compared to the same period last year (2070/71).
4. The Ministry of Agricultural Development (MoAD) estimated the total edible cereal production for human consumption at 5.5 million mt against the national requirement of 5.35 million mt. Despite the aggregate national surplus of 0.15 million mt, there is a deficit at the sub-regional and district levels.
6. According to the Consultative Group for International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) Programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) Regional Agriculture Forecasting Toolbox (CRAFT) the forecasted wheat production for the 2014/15 winter season is 1,994,598 mt.
