Crop Situation Update, Issue No. 9 ( February 2009)

Highlights:
1. According to a rapid WFP survey, more than 70% of surveyed 247 farmers in 20 districts expect a poor to very poor winter crop production due to lack of rainfall.
2. In 2008, the paddy production was at a record level with an estimated output of 4.5 million metric tons. However, this figure was only 1.5% above the paddy production registered in 2003, indicating a very low long-term productivity growth.
3. Paddy production increased by 5.2%, maize by 2.8% and millet by 0.5% compared to last year. The overall cereal output (2008 summer crops only) increased by an estimated 4.3%.
4. Despite good national figures, production was not uniform in the country. Excessive rainfall, pests, strong winds, floods and landslides during July-September resulted in moderate to very poor production in the Mountains and Hills of the Mid- and Far-Western regions.
5. The outlook for the winter crop production is worrisome. This, combined with other factors effecting food security (incl. remoteness, high food prices and limited income opportunities), poses a high risk of increased food insecurity beginning in April. Increased food security will become particularly critical from June onwards as Nepal moves into its traditional lean season. Areas of high concern are those where both the summer crop production was impaired and the prospect for the winter crop production is poor.
