    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.

    A joint FAO/WFP Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission (CFSAM) visited the Lao People’s Democratic Republic from 16 November to 5 December 2019 at the request of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. The request was prompted by concerns over the impact of unfavourable weather conditions during the second half of 2019 on the main season crops. The Mission estimated the 2019 cereal production and the import requirements during the 2020 marketing year (January/December) and assessed the overall food security situation in the country.

    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 forecast for 2014 early season crops. When paddy is converte d to milled rice and soybeans to cereal equivalent, total food production is estimated at about 5.03 million tonnes. 3. Unusually early and heavy rains in July and early August compromised maize and soybean yields but had little effect on paddy. 4. Soybean production recorded a second consecutive year of decline, due to a 6 percent reduction in yield. Main-season potatoes performed well this year, which bodes well for the seed supply for the 2014 early crop. However, supply of seed s for minor winter and spring wheat as well as barley is a constraint due to declining production over consecutive recent years.
