In West Africa, harvest of main season sorghum and millet is underway across the Sahel and conditions are favourable with some concern due to dry conditions.
Across the Sahel region, harvesting of main season sorghum and millet crops is expected to complete in November.
There is concern in Gambia and Mauritania where delayed rains and dry conditions continue to affect crops, and in north Burkina Faso where insecurity and increasing flows of internally displaced persons hamper agricultural activities.
In Cameroon, harvesting of the 2019 main season maize crops was concluded by the end of October while harvesting of millet and sorghum is ongoing.
