Crop Situation Update No.3

As reported in the previous Crop Situation Updates, the drought has had a profound impact on the production levels of the main summer crops. To verify some of the earlier findings with regard to crop losses (especially paddy) and the consequent food security impacts, the Ministry of Agriculture and Co-operatives (MoAC) requested WFP and FAO for a joint crop assessment which started on 29 October. The results of this assessment will be released at the end of November (and in the next Crop Situation Update). The most recent information collected from the field in 34 districts covered by the WFP Food Security Monitoring and Analysis System is reported in this issue of the Crop Situation Update. The information provided here has been used to identify the areas to be visited by the joint crop assessment mission.
