    • The wheat harvest concluded in most of Afghanistan. Farmers and observers report higher production than last year. High elevation areas will harvest through September depending on elevation. For the second crops, planted area is mostly normal, and the crops are developing normally.

    • As of July 24, 545,000 metric tons (MT) cereals have been harvested in Tajikistan. The Ministry of Agriculture of Tajikistan expects 1.3 million metric tons (MMT) of cereals this year, significantly higher than last year’s already above-average production.

    • Most areas will likely be able to maintain Minimal (IPC Phase 1) between now and December, but some flood-affected households, internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Afghanistan, and people who have fled fighting in Pakistan for Afghanistan may require assistance.
