Feb 2014

This map of South Sudan shows the average dates of onset of suitable conditions for land preparation and planting which may be interpreted as the dates by which populations need to be returned and appropriate security conditions ensured to avoid disruptions to the coming agricultural season.

Within the affected states, this translates into:

  • Central Equatoria: mid-March to early-April
  • Jonglei: mid-April to mid-May
  • Unity: late April to late May
  • Upper Nile: mid-May to late June
