August 2022
In August, planting of maize (main) continued and harvest of rice (main) planted in April was initiated; sweet potatoes planting was finalized and those planted last month were on early growth. RAINFALL per-dekad accumulation was around normal in most of the country during the second dekad, but was defcient during the 1stnd and 3rd dekad in central and western provinces. Thus the 30-day accumulation show poor accumulation in Central provinces and parts of Camaguey and Pinar del Rio in Western Cuba. SPI1 shows normal monthly rainfall accumulation for most of the total cropland (94%), and below normal in 6% of cropland at national level. ASAP level 1 warning indicating poor water balance is raised for some areas of eastern Cuba. SPI3 indicates that from June to August rainfall accumulation was normal in 97% croplands, below average in 3%. WSI indicates that during August there was above normal water for crops in 39-45% of the croplands, normal for 55-60% and insufficient in 1-4% of croplands. TEMPERATURE were around average in most of the country during the entire month. VEGETATION STATUS (zNDVIc) show above normal conditions in most (68%) of the cropland and normal vegetation in 32%. CONDITIONS for the main crop planting season h sowing and early growth have been mixed this month with some areas receiving below average rainfall and others with normal precipitation, this could cause reduction of crop growth during the main season. This could further lower the production forecast for cereals that was estimated last month. RAINFALL FORECAST from Copernicus C3S multi-system for the ensemble mean anomaly in the upcoming period SON shows below normal rainfall conditions for the country in the upcoming months. No NATURAL DISASTER were reported this month. No OTHER SHOCKS were reported. According to the last update by WFP monitoring (Hunger Map, August 2022) moderately low prevalence (11-12%) levels of food consumption insufficiency is estimated in all provinces, with a tendency to decrease. The number of people with food insufficiency remains estimated at 1.3 million, unchanged compared to prior month, but no data on food based coping is reported.
