The preliminary estimation of the 2011 summer crop production shows an increase of 10.8% in total crop output compared to last year: 5,072 thousand MT of paddy, 2,179 thousand MT of maize and 315 thousand MT of millet, resulting in an increase of 13.7 percent, 5.4 percent and 4.1 percent respectively.
The 2011/12 winter crop outlook is so far good, expecting a normal production due to timely and adequate rain/snowfall which is needed for the growing stage of the winter crops.
As a result of the bumper harvest of summer crops and the good outlook of winter crops, food availability in the country is likely to improve in the FY 2011/12. However, the relatively low increase and marginal decrease in the 2011 summer crop production in the Mid-Western hill and mountains is likely to generate food deficits in these areas, leading to food insecurity.
