Paddy is the main cereal crop in Nepal, followed by wheat, maize, millet, and
barley. 46% of the total of 3.35 million hectares of cultivated land, i.e. 1.54
million hectares, is covered by paddy. The summer crop production figures
during past 6 years are presented in Chart 1. The estimated paddy production in 2005/06 is 4.29 million MT, which constitutes about 68% of the summer cereal crops (6.23 million Mt) and around 55% of the total annual cereal production of around 7.76 million MT. Last year, national production of paddy decreased by 2% due to erratic monsoon rains, and snowfall (during the time of harvest) in some high hill and mountain areas. Based on preliminary field reports, the paddy crop situation is much worse than last year, particularly in the eastern Terai region, mainly due to unfavorable temporal and spatial pattern of the monsoon rains.
