Food Security Bulletin No.14

This May-June monitoring cycle marks late harvesting of wheat, barley and potato, and planting of paddy, maize, and millet. Reports from survey districts confirm the early assessments reporte in Bulletin 13; wheat and barley harvests are significantly lower than last year due to the winter drought, particularly in areas without irrigation facilities. People in the hills and mountains of Mid and Far-Western regions are worst affected with crop losses from 20 – 100%. Reports indicate that paddy and millet were planted on time and are growing well in most districts, due to the timely rainfall this season. These signs suggest a relatively good harvest of the next crops. Maize was planted and is reported to be growing well.
