Food Security Bulletin No. 32


This issue covers the period April-June 2011, the harvesting/postharvest season of main winter crops of wheat and barley. The overall food security situation has remained stable across Nepal. This is mainly attributed to a good harvest of winter crops (April-June) and employment  pportunities generated by development aid. The main winter crops of wheat and barley production increased by 12.2 percent and 9.6 percent respectively compared to last year. The wheat production set a national record of 1.75 million MT (MoAC/WFP/FAO Joint Assessment of 2010/11 Winter Crops, June 2011). The situation however remains a concern for some in some pocket areas where crops were affected by localized natural disasters like insufficient rainfall and hailstorm.
