    Prolonged dry spell from April to early June in main growing areas of the country affected plantings and yield potential of the 2015 food crops. Production of the 2014/15 early season potatoes and minor wheat and barley crops, currently harvested, anticipated to be considerably reduced. More rains are urgently needed to avoid a significant decrease in 2015 cereal production and the deterioration of the food security situation.

    In DPRK, below-average rains, coupled with high temperatures from mid-July until mid-August, resulted in moisture stress during critical crop development stages in localized areas of the main crop producing provinces, including South and North Hwanghae, and South and North Hamgyong. According to official estimates the dry spell affected 98 892 hectares of cropland, mostly paddy, maize and potatoes, representing 8 percent of the average area cultivated in the main season. Any drop in production could further aggravate food insecurity.

    Food Supply and Demand Outlook in 2020/21 (November/October)

    The production of the 2020 main season crops benefitted from expanded planting, which mostly offset yield losses due to floods and storms. Production prospects for the 2020/21 minor early season winter/spring crops, for harvest in June, are generally favourable. The 2020/21 aggregate food crop production is forecast at a near-average level of 5.6 million tonnes. Cereal import requirements in the 2020/21 marketing year (November/October) are estimated at about 1.1 million tonnes, close to the five-year average. With commercial imports officially planned at 205 000 tonnes, the uncovered food gap is estimated at about 860 000 tonnes, equivalent to approximately 2.3 months of food use.
