World cereal output expected large increase in 2013

NaijaAgroNet:

The world cereal production will reach a new high of almost 2,500 million tonnes, including rice in milled terms, according to new Food Agriculture Organisation (FAO) estimates, reports NaijaAgroNet.


The figure, NaijaAgroNet gathered is almost 8.4 per cent more than last year and some 6 percent above the previous record in 2011, according to the latest issue of the Crop Prospects and Food Situation Report. 

While global cereal production is expected to increase, FAO warned that food security conditions in several parts of Africa and elsewhere are deteriorating.
 

However, in the Sahelian countries of West Africa - Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Senegal - crops and pastures have been affected this year by late onset and early cessation of rains.

The situation, NaijaAgroNet also gathered could lead to a new surge in food insecurity and malnutrition in the 2013/14 marketing year.

A large Malian population displacement due to civil unrest is also contributing to regional food insecurity. 

In Central African Republic, FAO said that 1.3 million people are in need of emergency food assistance due to civil unrest.
 

NaijaAgroNet further reports that in Southern Africa, prices of cereals are near or at record levels in several countries, underpinned by tighter supplies in the 2013/14 marketing year. Dry weather has delayed planting of the 2014 crops in parts.
 

Whereas in the Philippines, estimated 14 million people adversely affected by Typhoon Haiyan, FAO said, has appealed for over $30 million for agricultural rehabilitation and the World Food Programme has proposed emergency food assistance for 2.5 million people.
 

On the other hand, in Syria and Yemen, continued civil conflicts have resulted in severe food insecurity for 6 million and 4.5 million people, respectively, requiring emergency food assistance.
