dc.description.abstractThis report provides an early assessment of the ongoing 2018 main crop season in DPRK by analysing the meteorological and vegetation conditions until mid-September 2018. The main findings are: • Main season crop production prospects for 2018 has been negatively affected by the combined effect of rainfall deficits at the beginning of August, high temperatures from mid-July to mid-August and floods at the end of August. • The heatwave between mid-July and mid-August, with temperature anomalies above 5 degrees almost in the whole country, affected mainly rain-fed maize and potato crops. • A reduction in maize production is expected because of the combined effects of yield reduction due to hot and dry weather and increased post-harvest losses due humidity brought by late abundant rains. • Potato yield in the northern provinces is expected to decline by 20%. • Excessive rains at the end of August led to localised flooding in the southern parts affecting irrigated paddy fields.en_GB
