First Advance Estimate of 2015/16 Wheat Production in Nepal Using the CCAFS Regional Agricultural Forecasting Toolbox (CRAFT)
PDF File Size: 246 KB | Download   
The significant drop in production is attributed to an estimated five percent decrease in wheat grown area nationwide as compared to the 2014/15 season. Wheat grown area decreased
because of two main reasons: a severe shortage of fuel for irrigation and land preparation and limited availability and use of fertilizers, both of which were caused by the political crisis in the Terai and restricted cross-border trade with India from September 2015 to February 2016. In addition, according to the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) (2016), cumulative rainfall during this winter season (November 2015 to January 2016) was far below the 30-year average, although official reports from the Government of Nepal’s Department of Hydrology and Meteorology are yet to be published. Because of inadequate soil moisture due to delayed and poor rains and limited irrigation due to the shortage of fuel, it was assumed in the CRAFT model run that the irrigated area decreased by 25 percent and wheat plantation was late by 10 days.
