Crop Situation Update is issued by the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MoAD), World Food Programme (WFP), and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). It is published twice a year and focuses on production and associated opportunities and challenges of summer and winter crops in Nepal. While periodic updates on crop performance and food security situation are provided through Food Security Bulletins (issued by MoAD and WFP on quarterly basis); crop situation update provides a comprehensive overview on food supply situation through looking at production and trade of major summer and winter crops in Nepal.
