For the third consecutive year, drought conditions have severely affected agricultural crop production in Nepal. Following signs of early paddy crop failure and reports about farmer’s inability to start planting, especially in the Eastern Terai, the Ministry of Agriculture and Co-operatives (MoAC) initiated a preliminary assessment of the paddy crop losses in August 2006,which estimated a decline in national paddy production of 850,000 Mt.A more extensive crop and food supply assessment mission followed in November 2006. led by the MoAC and supported by the World Food Programme (WFP) and Agriculture Organization (FAO). This Crop Situation Update summarizes the outcomes of that assessment.Regionally, the Eastern Development Region was hardest hit by the Drought, particularly the districts of Saptari,Sihara, Dhanusa and Udayapur, where output declined between 27% and 39% compared to last year. On average,yields in the Eastern Development Region were about 10% lower than last year and almost 15% of paddy land was left fallow. The Central Development region lost 9.4% in output compared to last year. The Western and Mid Western Development Regions lost 6.7% and 7.8% in output respectively. Production in the Far Western Development Region increased by 2.4% as more land was put under paddy cultivation and weather conditions in this region were favourable.
