HIGHLIGHTS

• Early and sufficient rain in May contributed to timely rice seeding and transplanting in the second quarter of 2012. Wet season cultivated areas have increased from the previous year’s.

• According to current river levels and predicted weather conditions, the maximum water level in the Bassac-Chakto Mukh station is expected to reach 10.55 m in 2012. When the river level exceeds an average of 10 m in this station there is a probability for floods.

• Rice prices have increased from the previous quarter due to increased demand and depleted stocks from dry and wet seasons.

• National survey data show that the nutritional status of women has not improved since 2000 and there has been no improvement in anemia status of pregnant women since 2005.
