The Crop Situation Update is produced 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 the food security situation are provided through the Nepal Food Security Bulletin (issued by MoAD and WFP on a trimester basis) the Crop Situation Update provides a comprehensive overview of the food supply situation by looking into production and trade of major summer and winter crops in Nepal.
This edition of the Crop Situation Update covers the 2013/14 (Nepali Fiscal Year 2070/71) summer crop production and the outlook of winter crops for the same period. In addition, it also looks at the trade of key cereals between the period of 2012 and 2013.
