  • NEWS DETAILS: USDA Post Increases Colombia MY2012-13 Rice Production Forecast By 12% Dec 09, 2013 The USDA Post has increased Colombia’s paddy rice production in MY 2012-13 (April – March) to around 1.9 million tons, up about 12% from previous estimates of around 1.7 million tons based on expectations of higher yield. The Post says that average paddy rice yields in Colombia are expected to increase around 12% from about 4.1 tons per hectare to about 4.6 tons per hectare due to rains from the “La Niña” phenomena and favorable weather conditions. The Post says that average rice area is increasing in Colombia due to better prices (up about 12% compared to 2012). However, this is unlikely to translate into higher production in 2013-14 due to unpredictable weather conditions in the eastern plains (where much of the expansion is taking place), production inefficiencies, slow technology adoption, high input costs, deficient infrastructure and plant diseases, the Post says. Colombia’s paddy rice production in MY 2013-14 is expected to increase by around 14,000 tons to about 1.926 million tons, according to the Post.Meanwhile, the U.S. share of Colombia’s legal rice imports has almost reached Daily Rice E-Newsletter by Rice Plus Magazine www.ricepluss.com News and R&D Section mujajhid.riceplus@gmail.com Cell # 92 321 369 2874 View slide
  • 100% after the implementation of the U.S.-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement (CTPA), the Post says. The tariff-rate-quota (TRQ) for the U.S. under 2013 CPTA stands at 82,555 tons and is likely to be covered completely this year. However, illegal rice imports from neighboring countries Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela remain a problem for the government. According to the Post, illegal rice imports by Colombia are estimated at around 300,000 tons annually.

However, the DA has authorized imports of around 500,000 tons of rice last month to boost stocks. The USDA Post in the Philippines says that the additional imports and food donations will help improve food stocks in the country.The USDA Post also says that losses due to Typhoon Haiyan were relatively low because affected areas were not highly productive, and a significant part of the fourth quarter rice crop in the affected region had been harvested before the typhoon struck the Philippines.

Offers were unchanged today around $15.65-$16.66 per fob farm (about $345-$367 per ton), depending on where they are located in the U.S. mid-South, for December through January shipment. Bids from larger mills were decreased to around $15.00 per cwt (about $331 per ton) while bids from exporters decreased to about $15.25 per cwt (about $336 per ton), both for December through January delivery, and as a result there were no trades to report today.

  • Total rice stocks in the Philippines stood at around 2.44 million tons on November 1, 2013, down about 12% from around 2.78 million tons recorded during the same time last year, but up about 38% from the previous month, according to the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics (BAS).According to BAS, household stocks (which accounts for around 59.4% of total rice stocks in the country) stood at about 1.45 million tons on November 1, 2013, up about 0.6% from about 1.44 million tons seen during the same time last year. Rice stocks with the National Food Authority or NFA (which accounts for around 14.5% of total rice stocks in the country) stood at around 350,000 tons, down about 37.1% from last year, while rice stocks in commercial warehouses (which account for around 26.1% of total rice stocks in the country) stood at around 640,000 tons, down about 18.6% from last year.

  • December. Unfortunately, about 2,000 rice mills in Dinjapur, a region known for both its rice production and rice milling, are sitting quietly inoperative due to road blockades orchestrated by the 18 Party Alliance, a rightleaning group of Bangladeshi political parties led by the Bangladesh National Party (BNP), according to local media. Farmers are not able to transport the rice to the millers while the blockade is in place.The cessation of rice milling has left about 50,000 people without work. In an area where 72% of the population works in agriculture, an extended blockade can have lasting economic repercussions on citizens.While some mills are able to purchase rice through special arrangements or paying double the normal price, they are reluctant to resume operations until there is more certainty about the rice supply around the country. Rice prices could increase if this situation continues much longer, simply due to a dearth of available milled rice. Bangladesh would also likely see increases in other food prices, as locally grown vegetables like radishes, kohlrabi, and coriander have a shorter shelf-life, resulting in direct losses if farmers aren’t able to transport their goods to market on a regular basis.India, too, is suffering from the blockades, as they are unable to access the clothing, fish, and other items they frequently import from Bangladesh.Since late October, at least 73 people have died in street violence amidst protests in Bangladesh, marking the most violent year in the country’s 42-year history.

  • Oryza Afternoon Recap – Chicago Rough Rice Futures Remain under Pressure; Grains Firm as Traders Finalize Positions ahead of Key USDA Report Dec 09, 2013 Chicago rough rice futures for January delivery settled 3.5 cents per cwt (about $1 per ton) lower at $15.510 per cwt (about $342 per ton). Rough rice futures remain under pressure following last week’s bearish development on the charts. Today’s action appears to indicate that additional follow-through selling is underway and could continue in the coming sessions. Rice futures were unable to capture support from the neighboring grain pits despite strong gains in beans and corn as traders look to position themselves ahead of a key USDA report due out tomorrow. The other grains were noted mostly higher today; soybeans finished the day about 1.4% higher at $13.2550 per bushel; wheat finished about 0.1% lower at $6.5050 per bushel; and corn finished the day about 0.9% higher at $4.3800 per bushel. U.S. stocks rose on Monday, with the S&P 500 rising above its record close, as Wall Street weighed when the Federal Reserve would begin curbing its monetary stimulus and tracked budget negotiations on Capitol Hill. Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond President Jeffrey Lacker on Monday said he expects a taper discussion at next week's Federal Open Market Committee meeting, while St. Louis Fed President James Bullard said positive trends in the labor market make cuts to the Fed's $85 billion in monthly bond purchases more likely. Lacker and Bullard spoke before central bankers go into their "blackout" period before the two-day FOMC gathering that starts next Tuesday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose. The S&P 500 rose above its all-time finish of 1,807.23 set on Nov. 27, with financials and technology the best performing and utilities and consumer discretionary faring the worst of its 10 major industry groups. The Nasdaq also rose. U.S. stock markets are currently trading up about 0.1%, gold is trading about 0.5% higher, crude oil is seen trading about 0.1% lower, and the U.S. dollar is seen trading about 0.2% lower at about 2:00pm Chicago time. Turning to the daily continuation chart of Chicago rough rice futures for January delivery, technically the market remains under pressure following a firm reversal noted last week. Prices remain in bearish territory and have once again come to a rest just above the lower Bollinger band which current acts as the price target at $15.482 per cwt (about $341 per ton). Some traders expect to see additional losses in coming sessions; however prices will likely find psychological support at $15.500 per cwt (about $342 per ton) a level that will first have to be broken on an attempt at a prolonged bearish move. Prices did fall below this threshold today but were unable to maintain these levels and quickly bounced back above. Today’s action provides a negative outlook for tomorrows trade direction as the market continues to put in lower lows than they had in the previous session. The sessions trading range is noted as $15.415-$15.645 per cwt (about $340-$345 per ton). Friday, there were 843 contracts traded, up from 841 contracts traded on Thursday. Open interest – the number of contracts outstanding – on Friday decreased by 123 contracts to 8,618.

Investors now await another raft of Chinese data on Tuesday, including November industrial production, retail sales and fixed-asset investment.
