Crop Situation Bulletin for Winter 2013 released

With 615,400 mt of production, the central region has the largest share of wheat production (33 percent). Rupandehi, Dhanusa, Bara, Kapilvastu and Parsa are the top 5 wheat producing districts in 2013/14.

Although the average rainfall from October 2013 to March 2014 was only 75.7 percent of the ‘normal level’2, adequate soil moisture allowed for germination and crop growth. Nevertheless, some districts including Saptari, Siraha, Panchthar, Sankhuwasabha, Ilam and Tehrathum reported moderately lower levels of rainfall and in 34 village development committees (VDCs) of Dailekh and 12 VDCs in Dang hailstones damaged the standing wheat crop.
