Seasonal Agrometeorologicals Print PDF

The expected to receive Normal to above normal seasonal rain over north eastern, central and north western including western half of the country enable get good moisture which would have an advantage of Belg agricultural activities, planting of long cycle crops, water requirement of perennial plants and availability of pasture and drinking water. Therefore, proper input should be utilized to take advantage of the relatively better condition. Whereas, the expected to receive normal to below normal seasonal rain to prevail across the South and South-eastern regions, where Belg is the main rainy season which will have expected probability of moisture stress and negatively affecting Belg crop performance and early depletion of water and pasture resources may lead to scarcity of milk and other livestock products and negatively impacting food security and nutrition and it may trigger resource-based conflicts, atypical pastoral migration. Therefore we advised proper moisture conservation, rain water harvesting and adopt irrigation, promote drought tolerant crops varieties /and early maturing crops, closely monitor pasture and water conditions across pastoral areas, conduct proper moisture conservation and water harvesting for use during times of water scarcity, facilitate conservation of crop residues, supply of animal feeds and water and make strategy to distribution of the feed from surplus to the deficit area which can help in coping with expected occurrences of moisture stress in the season.
