    FAO/WFP Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission to DPR Korea, 25 November 2011 2011

    1. In DPRK, a total of just under 5.5 million tonnes of staple food production from cooperative farms, individual plots on sloping land and household gardens for 2011/12 is expected, including estimates for the 2011 main season harvest and forecast for the 2012 early season crops. This is about 8.5 percent higher than the revised near normal production in 2010/11 reflecting higher plantings and yields. When paddy is converted to milled rice and soybeans to cereal equivalent, the above total prod uction comes to 4.66 million tonnes. 2. The increase in production was mainly due to the increased availability of fertiliser (up about 50 percent compared to last year), diesel and electricity in spite of the adverse weather. The July-August floods affected paddy crop and the subsequent typhoons particularly impacted the maize crop mainly in North and South Hwanghae, two of the important grain producing provinces. 3. Soybean production this year increased to 254 000 tonnes (294 000 t onnes in cereal equivalent) or about 60 percent higher than the low level of last year. However, given the overall inadequacy of pulses, efforts should continue to increase the protein content of the diet. 4. This year’s poor harvest of early crops has resulted in the shortage of wheat, barley and potato seed for the 2012 winter and spring crops...

    Rapport spécial mission FAO/PAM d' évaluation des récoltes et de la Sécurité alimentaire en République Populaire Démocratique de Corée, 28 novembre 2013 2013
    Also available in:

    En RPDC, en dépit d’une légère diminution de la superficie ensemencée, la production agricole globale de 2013/14 est estimée en hausse d’environ 5 pour cent. 2. Au total, 5,98 millions de tonnes de denrées alimentaires (parmi lesquelles riz paddy, céréales, soja et pommes de terre en équivalent céréales) devraient être produites en 2013/14 par les coopératives agricoles, les parcelles sur les terrains en pentes et les jardins potagers. Cette estimation comprend la récolte de la campagn e principale de 2013 qui s’est achevée et les prévisions concernant les cultures précoces de 2014. Après conversion du riz paddy en riz usiné et du soja en équivalent céréales, les estimations établissent la production alimentaire totale à 5,03 millions de tonnes environ. 3. Les précipitations anormalement précoces et violentes tombées en juillet et au début août ont compromis les rendements de maïs et de soja mais n’ont guère eu d’incidence sur le riz paddy. 4. La production de soja a accusé un recul pour la deuxième année consécutive, en raison d’une diminution de 6 pour cent des rendements. La campagne principale de pommes de terre a été bonne cette année, ce qui est de bon augure pour les disponibilités de semences en vue des cultures précoces de 2014. Toutefois, les disponibilités de semences pour les campagnes mineures de blé d’hiver et d’été ainsi que d’orge sont un problème, du fait du recul de la production ces quelques dernières années.

    FAO/WFP Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission to D.P.R. Korea, November 2010 2010
    Also available in:

    In DPRK, including the estimates for the 2010 main season harvest and forecast for the 2011 early season crops, a total of 5.33 million tonnes of staple food production from the cooperative farms, individual plots on sloping land and household gardens for 2010/11 is expected. This is about 3 percent higher than in 2009/10. When paddy is converted to milled rice, the above total production comes to 4.48 million tonnes. A substantial increase in production was expected due to some improvements in the availability of fertilizer, pesticides, operational tractors, diesel and electricity. This expectation, however, was frustrated by some adverse weather events. The winter of 2009/10 was unusually severe and prolonged which resulted in a low survival rate of winter wheat and delays in planting of spring crops and transplanting of main season paddy. Also, unusually intense rainstorms hit most of the country in late August and early September, causing localised flooding, crop loss and str uctural damage to irrigation canals and dams...
