Messages clés

  • Le retard et la faible pluviométrie entravent les opérations de semis d’été qui ont cependant bien démarré dans les montagnes humides. Parallèlement, les récoltes de printemps ont atteint leur pic en juillet dans les zones où cette campagne n’a pas échoué et qui semé en mars. Une production en-dessous de la normale est attendue à cause de la sécheresse. En revanche, les récoltes de banane, de racines et tubercules et de fruitiers sont normales.

Mission Highlights

  • The 2017 spring agricultural season was characterized by unfavourable distribution and quantity of rainfall, making it the fourth consecutive season since 2014 that significantly deviates from the long-term precipitation pattern.

  • Domestic food availability in 2017 is estimated at 550 000 tonnes, about 3.5 percent less than in 2016 and almost 6 percent below average. The decline is essentially due to lower outputs for both maize and sorghum.
