      • Seasonal crops (around 40 crops including Coarse grain, Grain legume, Vegetables etc) for Maha and Yala
      • Perennial crops (around 20 crops including Minor export crops, Fruits)
estimation of highland crop extent and production
ESTIMATION OF HIGHLAND CROP EXTENT AND PRODUCTION
  • Estimating the Average Yield
    • No crop cutting surveys
    • Depending on the inputs weather conditions, expecting yield by the farmers, AI and DO attached to respective Agrarian Service Centers compute the production
    • In estimating the Average Yield, crop conditions prevailed during the season in the area also taken in to consideration
livestock statistcs
LIVESTOCK STATISTCS
  • Livestock Population
    • Numbers are reported in HL Register (Green book) by ARPAs under the supervision of DOs
  • Slaughter Statistics

          • Mahaweli “H”
          • Matale
          • Polonnaruwa
  • Collect Information from sample of farmers depending on the crop outlook and expected production
  • 2-3 weeks prior to harvesting
  • Results available to the users by end of August before the harvest come to the market
special surveys for potatoes
SPECIAL SURVEYS FOR POTATOES
  • Conducted by SOs in following districts
          • Nuwaraeliya
          • Badulla

cost of production cop
COST OF PRODUCTION (COP)‏
  • Conduct COP Surveys annually
    • Collect data from the sample of Tea Factories operate under the Sri Lanka Tea Board
    • Collect data from the sample of Rubber Estates operate under Rubber Development Department
    • Collect data from the a sample of coconut Estates operate under the Coconut Development Board
preparation of food balance sheet
PREPARATION OF FOOD BALANCE SHEET
  • Provides an idea about the availability of the quantities of Processed and Unprocessed food for human consumption during a specific period.
  • Available Supply = Production + Changes in Stocks + Net Imports
  • Food Gross =Available Supply- Animal feed – seed – manufacture – waste
  • Food Net = Food gross*Extraction Rate
  • Derives Nutrient contents of these supplies expressed per person per day by applying Nutrient conversion Factors.
