FAO/WFP Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission to South Sudan, February 2014 

In 2013, despite the impact of floods and insecurity in some areas, generally favourable rains and absence of major outbreaks of pests and diseases favoured cereal crop production in the traditional farming sector of South Sudan. • Accordingly, total cereal harvested area in the traditional sector increased by about 2.8 percent resulting in an estimated net cereal production of about 892 000 tonnes, about 13 percent above (...)

FAO/WFP Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission to South Sudan, February 2013 

Generally favourable rains and no outbreaks of pests and diseases in 2012, resulted in a net cereal production of about 761 000 tonnes in the traditional sector. At this level, production is about 35 percent above the 2011 estimates and about 6 percent above the average of the previous five years. • With a projected population of about 10.4 million people in 2013, an overall cereal deficit of nearly 371 000 tonnes is (...)

Inter-Agency Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission to Niger, 4 February 2013 

Summary

Despite flooding in parts, adequate rainfall during the main cropping season together with improved distribution of key inputs, has resulted in a favourable cereal harvest in 2012. • Aggregate cereal production, estimated at over 5.1 million tonnes (including off-season crop harvest forecasts) is about 42 percent higher than the 2011 output and well above the average of the past five years. • Accordingly, the country is (...)

FAO/WFP Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission to Syrian Arab Republic, July 2013 

Seasonal rainfall in 2012/13 was better than in any of the previous five years, especially in the northern cereal-producing governorates. „h Relatively less area was planted to cereals, compared to the last ten years. Contributing factors include high costs of production, reduced input availability including labour, prevailing violence, related damage to farm equipment, and abandoned land. The area under irrigated cereal (...)

A policymakers' guide to crop diversification 

The case of the potato in Kenya

A key challenge facing Kenya is to ensure the food and nutrition security of present and future generations while protecting the country's natural resource base. Kenya's population currently stands at about 40 million and is projected to reach 60 million by the year 2030. Kenya remains a food-deficit country even in bumper harvest years. Discussions of food security in Kenya usually revolve around maize, since the country's (...)

FAO/WFP Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission to DPR Korea, 28 November 2013 

Highlights

In the DPRK, despite a small reduction in planted area, overall crop production in 2013/14 is estimated to increase by about 5 percent. 2. A total of 5.98 million tonnes of food output (including paddy, cereals, soybeans, and cereal equivalent of potatoes) from cooperative farms, plots on sloping land, and household gardens for 2013/14 is expected. This estimate includes the 2013 main season harvest that was concluded and the (...)

Crop Prospects and Food Situation - No. 2 June 2012 

The outlook for world cereal production in 2012 improved further in recent weeks largely on expectation of a much bigger maize crop in the United States. World cereal production is now forecast to increase by 3.2 percent to a new record. At 2 419 million tonnes, global cereal production would exceed the anticipated utilization in 2012/13 and lead to a significant replenishment of world stocks, which could keep international (...)

Crop residue based densified total mixed ration – A user-friendly approach to utilise food crop 

Crop residues are valuable resources since they form a bulk of ruminant feed in many tropical countries. Due to lack of effective management of these resources, unfortunately they are being burnt in some countries, causing environmental pollution. The digestibility of crop residues and other low quality forages can be increased through the action of rumen microbes by strategically mixing nitrogen and minerals that are (...)

Natural resource assessment for crop and land suitability 

An application for selected bioenergy crops in Southern Africa region

This publication seeks to assist government and institutional policy-planners and decision-makers in identifying places where energy crops could be grown and in understanding the geographic (agro-ecological and economic) context of bioenergy supplies, at country and regional levels. It will not only increase awareness about the environmental challenges related to the production systems of bioenergy crops, but will also (...)

On-farm practices for the safe use of waste water in urban and peri-urban horticulture 

Many farmers in developing countries grow crops, especially vegetables, in urban and peri-urban environments using wastewater, raw or diluted, to irrigate their crops. Such wastewater is often heavily contaminated with disease-causing organisms and chemical agents that can seriously harm the health of the farmers,the traders who handle crops and the people who consume them. It is therefore very important for urban and (...)

Crop Prospects and Food Situation - no. 4, december 2012 

Firmer production estimates for 2012 confirm tightening wheat and maize supplies while the outlook for rice remains positive. In spite of a contraction in overall cereal utilization in 2012/13, the world cereal stock-to-use ratio is projected to decline by 2 percentage points from the previous season. International prices of all major cereals, except rice, remain well above last year. For wheat and maize, while prices have (...)

Crop Prospects and Food Situation - No. 3 Oct. 2012 

Latest indications confirm a decline in world cereal production in 2012 from the record in 2011. The decrease will result in a significant reduction in world inventories by the close of seasons in 2013, even with world demand sliding as a result of high prices. International cereal prices remained firm in September, with average wheat and rice quotations increasing slightly, but those of maize declining. Although the volume (...)
