The objectives of the 2010/11(2003 E.C.), Belg Season Crop Production Sample Survey is to produce basic quantitative information on cropland area, production and yield, of major Belg season crops, as well as to provide quantitative information on:

  • The extent and use of different farm management practices on Belg season crops such as fertilized crop land area and quantity of fertilizer used by crop and fertilizer type, irrigated cropland area under improved seed, pesticide treated cropland area ….. etc.
  •  The adequate and timely supply of this information to ultimate users is, therefore, important for use as a primary input in the process of policy formulation, designing developmental agricultural projects and programmes. This report, therefore, presents quantitative information on the above mentioned major variables at country and regional levels.
