Maize production likely to be impacted by drop in December rainfall

KEY MESSAGES

  • Most of Rwanda experienced favorable rainfall during Season A, which has led to average to above-average bean production, except in a few localized areas. However, the lack of rains in the third dekad of December is likely to lead to below-average maize production. If the rains resume rapidly and last two more weeks, there may be an adequate maize harvest to support Minimal (IPC Phase 1) outcomes through May 2017.
