Above average incomes and local cereals stocks suggest minimal food insecurity throughout next June


• The above average incomes earned from the good marketing season of groundnut and other leguminous crops have reduced pressure on households to offload cereal stocks, increasing cereal supply in local markets between January and February.

• Good household food stock levels, coupled with declining imported broken rice prices and normal income levels will help to maintain Minimal (Phase 1) food insecurity through next June.
