During February 2019, the sector partners have assisted around 121,000 individuals with agriculture and livelihood interventions in the three most affected north-east states of Nigeria. According to the seasonal rainfall prediction by the Nigerian Meteorological Agency, most parts of the northeast are likely to experience a shorter and drier planting season. The timing of provision of agricultural inputs and accessibility to improved/drought resistant variety (early maturing) seeds will be critical to mitigate the negative impact of the anticipated dry spells and short planting window to the rainy season agriculture campaign starting in May 2019.
