The latest data provided by the European Commission shows just how much rice we’re talking about.Imports from LDCs into Europe now account for half of the rice imported by the European Union (EU). The data published by the European Commission shows that between September 2013 and July 2014, 254,436 tons of milled from LDCs entered into the EU’s borders. This number is 51% more than the previous year, when imports from LDCs reached only 168,832 tons. Ente Nazionale Risi (ENR), the National Agency for Rice in Italy, forecasts that at the end of this campaign global imports from LDCs could reach 280,000 tons, about 47% more than one year ago.In September 2014, total imports reached 190,000 tons. Italy bought 11,712 tons of milled rice from LDCs, corresponding to 1.3% of the total domestic availability and 40% of total domestic imports. ENR has updated its dossier on Cambodia and submitted it to the Minister for Economic Development, waiting for the call for a meeting of the rice growing sector in Rome.Tags: LDC (Least Developed Countries), EU, Rice imports, Ente Nazionale Risi, European Commission, EU Everything But Arms Clause, Eba (Everything but Arms), Everything But Arms (EBA) agreement Bangladesh Temporarily Waives off Non-fragrant Rice Export Ban; Mulls 50,000 Tons Export to Sri Lanka Aug 26, 2014 The government of Bangladesh is planning to temporarily waive off its ban on non-fragrant rice exports and export around 50,000 tons of rice to Sri Lanka, according to local sources.Bangladesh has extended the ongoing five-year ban on non-fragrant rice exports to the fiscal year 2014-15 (July 1, 2014 - June 30, 2015) in order to ensure supplies and control price hikes in the local market. But the local sources quoted the Food Minister as saying that the government decided to export 50,000 tons of rice to Sri Lanka based on the current food situation in the country.

The global agricultural firm will use Sumant Kumar's rice farming expertise to increase rice production in some African countries and help them eventually reduce their dependency on imports. It is keen on working towards ensuring food security in these countries.Sumant Kumar, who hails from India's Bihar state, made headlines in 2012 by achieving an yield of around 22.4 tons per hectare using SRI. He also encouraged a number of his co-farmers in Bihar to increase yields by adopting SRI.SRI is a low water, labor intensive, organic method of rice farming. In the SRI system only a single seedling, which can approximately yield 200 seeds per panicle, is used unlike a cluster of seedlings used in the traditional farming system. However, SRI farming is said to be labor-intensive and time-taking as farmers need to plant each sapling individually with sufficient space between the seedlings to allow free flow of water. Rice saplings planted under this method absorb lesser water as well as produce more rice with less seeds.Sumant Kumar's experience with SRI is being perceived as an important step towards agricultural growth in various under-developed and developing countries in Africa, stated the press release. According to the Rice Research Coordinator, West Africa Agricultural Productivity Program (WAAPP), SRI farming system was introduced last year in some parts of Sierra Leone on a trial basis.

  • 8. 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 Local sources say the government is planning to import around 500,000 tons of rice from Myanmar. Due to the proposed railway conversion works, it is estimated that transporting rice from surplus states such as Punjab or Andhra Pradesh to Tripura and Mizoram would cost the Food Corporation of India (FCI) around Rs.3,200 per quintal (around $529 per ton), including the cost of rice at around Rs.2,755 per quintal (around $455 per ton).In contrast, importing rice from neighboring Myanmar would coat around Rs.2,400 per quintal (around $397 per ton), including transportation from borders. Considering this huge cost difference, the government may bend towards importation.After the cabinet approves the imports, state-owned Metals and Minerals Trading Corporation of India (MMTC) or PEC Limited would invite tenders for imports. An official from Food Ministry told local sources that since storage facilities in these two states are not so developed, the government is keen on expediting imports to avoid any kind of disruptions in PDS supplies.All the seven north-eastern states require 320,000 tons per month for PDS purposes, according to the Food Ministry.Owing to this proposed railway works, Indian government is planning to transport rice from Andhra Pradesh to Tripura through Bangladesh. It already transported around 10,000 tons of rice on a trial basis. Discussions over further transportation are yet to happen between the two governments.

The increase is mainly due to better than normal returns achieved by some basmati rice farmers last year, said the Commissioner. He noted that at the current levels, basmati rice production is expected to reach around 8.5 million tons, up about 40% from around 6.25 million tons produced last year.Overall rice sowing in India has been slow since the beginning of this kharif season due to late arrival of monsoons. As of August 22, 2014, India's kharif rice planting reached around 33.5 million hectares, slightly up from around 33.4 million hectares planted during the same time last year.India exported around 3.76 million tons of basmati rice in FY 2013-14 (April - March), up about 9% from around 3.46 million tons exported in FY 2012-13, according to data from the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA). India exported a total of 10.78 million tons of rice (including basmati and non-basmati) in FY 2013- 14, up about 6% from about 10.15 million tons exported last year.

  • 11. 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 Central America is the world’s biggest paddy export market and the USA and Brazil are the top paddy exporting nations. The USA exported around 3.7 million tons of rice in 2013, making it one of the biggest rice exporters in the world while Brazil is a much smaller player, exporting just over 900,000 tons in 2013. However, 40 percent of the USA’s rice exports are rough rice or paddy which has not been milled, while the figure for Brazil is 30%. The only other significant paddy exporting nation is India, however their paddy exports made up just 2 percent of its total rice exports in 2013. Vietnam does not export any paddy while Thailand’s paddy exports are next to nothing.Reasons behind why paddy exports are so important for the USA and Brazil can be explained by the rice and paddy tariff structures of the markets they export to. Most Central American and Caribbean countries have some of the highest rice tariff rates in the world but tariff levels differ for milled rice and paddy. The way the tariff rates are set means that it tends to be much cheaper to import paddy rather than milled rice. For instance, in Nicaragua the Most Favored Nation (MFN) tariff rate for milled rice is 60 percent whereas the rate for paddy is much less at 22.5 percent. Setting the tariff levels at lower rates for less processed products is referred to as tariff escalation and is a common strategy used by most countries including the industrialized countries for protecting domestic industries. In the case of rice, the purpose is to protect the domestic milling industry. Since this policy is used in many of the markets in Central America which also happen to be major export markets for the USA and Brazil, paddy remains a significant export product in the Americas. Brazil’s top paddy export markets for 2013 were Venezuela (150,000 tons) and Nicaragua (just over 100,000 tons). The bulk of the USA’s 1.5 million paddy exports in 2013 went to Mexico (715,000 tons), Venezuela (295,000 tons), Panama (149,000 tons), Honduras (101,000), El Salvador (72,000 tons), Guatemala (63,000 tons) and Costa Rica (54,000 tons). Turkey and Libya also import significant amounts of paddy from the USA Tags: rice paddy, Tariffs, Central America, usa, Brazil, Rice exports, Adam John Red Rice - One Man's Trash Is Another Man's Treasure Aug 26, 2014

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 Oryza rufipogon which is more commonly known as red rice is categorized as a noxious weed across numerous states in the US, whereas in other countries around the world it is a major food staple and even tops the list as a national delicacy in the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. For US rice farmers, red rice provides nothing but a headache because it competes with their rice crop and is almost impossible to get rid of because red rice seeds can remain dormant in the field for years and herbicides which would kill off red rice would also end up destroying the main rice crop. US farmers are forced to the fact that red rice contaminates their harvest so extra costs occur in the milling process when the red rice grains have to be sorted and removed from their finished rice product. However, red rice is a major staple in the East African countries of Djibouti and Somalia where it is called Belem rice. But the country which is most famous for red rice is Bhutan. Although traditional varieties of red rice, which have been grown for thousands of years in the country’s Paro Valley, gives a low yield, it is very suitable for the harsh environmental conditions in the high altitude which requires very little nutrient inputs and is highly resistant to pests.For consumers, red rice’s nutritional value is in line with brown rice but it only takes the same amount of time to cook as white rice which for poor smallholders and consumers makes a big difference in cooking costs for fuel. Its name comes from the reddish bran layer which covers the grain which is left on. Though a niche market, Bhutan has been exporting red rice since the 1990s through a company called Lotus Foods. Ironically, the United States is one of the countries which imports red rice from Bhutan so there’s really no escaping red rice.
