  3. 3. The professor said they will expand the experimental plantation to 100 mu in Yancheng in 2014 to further evaluate the performance of the salt-resistant varieties.Yancheng currently has 410,000 hectares of coastal marsh, but saline-alkali land is expanding by 2,000 hectares per year.If it proves successful in further tests and is approved by agricultural authorities, the high-yield salt-resistant variety could mean enormous economic benefits by helping the world's most populous nation cultivate its vast idle saline-alkali land, he said.Cultivation, together with the use of rice straw and other organic fertilizers, could help improve soil conditions in the long term, said Li Guanyi, another professor with Hainan University.China has some 13.3 million hectares of saline-alkali soils with the potential to be cultivated, equivalent to one tenth of the country's total farmland, according to data from the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Wang Cailin, chief scientist of the rice breeding program in Jiangsu, said more than one quarter of the world's land is saline-alkali soil and another 20 percent of farmland is at risk of salination.Traditional methods of desalination, such as soil replacement and watering down the salt, are less efficient and also costly, while the research progress on salt-resistant plants points to promising new prospects.The professors inserted a saltresistant gene from a wild plant into a normal rice variety six years ago. After five years of screening, they have obtained 18 salt-resistant rice varieties.The two began to dedicate themselves to research on the development of salt-resistant varieties as early as 1992. They managed to cultivate salt-resistant vegetables, including tomatoes, eggplant, cowpeas and pepper, years later in the late 1990s.Scientists in other countries, including the United States, have also developed salt-resistant varieties such as barley, wheat, sorghum and tomatoes. However, most saline-alkali soil exploitation worldwide focuses on landscape greening rather than the cultivation of crops and vegetables. PH rice production Philippine Daily Inquirer A total of 4.53 million hectares of the country‟s 14.1 million ha of agricultural land are devoted to rice production.Rice production area in the country is smaller compared to rice exporting countries like China (29.93 million ha), India (44.10 million ha), Indonesia (12.88 million ha), Thailand (10.96 million ha) and Vietnam (7.44 million ha).Palay production in the Philippines: 12.389 million metric tons (MT) in 2000, 14.603 million MT in 2005 and 18.57 million MT in 2012.Top 10 rice producing provinces (2000-2006 data): Nueva Ecija (average of 1,113,284 MT), Isabela (1,006,422 MT), Pangasinan (832,114 MT), Iloilo (763,893 MT), Cagayan (548,369 MT), Tarlac (469,316 MT), Camarines Sur (451,489 MT), North Cotabato (418,197 MT), Leyte (417,820 MT) and Negros Occidental (373,254 MT) The Philippines feeds 20 people per hectare of harvested area. Thailand feeds six people while Vietnam feeds 12.Sources: Department of Agriculture and Rice Figures in the Philippines and Philippine Rice Industry Primer consolidated and published by Philippine Rice Research Institute 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

Thai rice exports in May Rise Above Target This Year Thai rice exports this year could rise above the targeted levels due to demand from key importers and limited supplies in other exporting countries, Chookiat Ophaswongse, president of Association of exporters of rice in Thailand, has Dow Jones said in an interview Friday. “Rice exports this year should reach 8.7 million (metric) tons, given the strong demand in world markets for Thai rice,” Chookiat said.The Thai government has set a target of exporting 8.5 million MT rice for 2007, an increase of 16.4% compared to 7.3 million MT exported in 2006.

  7. 7. 2.52vmillion MT of rice of 25 April this year, up 11.8% on year, the Ministry of Commerce Department of Foreign Trade said Wednesday. Chookiat said Indonesia, which has shown a keen buyer after unfavorable weather reduced production of rice there, plans to import up to 2.2 million million tonnes of rice in 2007 to fill a shortfall of domestic „ offer.Indonesia was imported only 600,000 tons of rice in 2006. “Indonesia has no choice but to import more rice this year, while Vietnam is almost sold out, so we can earn huge export opportunities in Indonesia market, “said Chookiat.Vietnam has already signed contracts to export 3 million tonnes of rice a target total of 4 to 4.5 million MT this year. The increase in demand especially from Indonesia, China, Africa and countries are expected to help sustain the export price of Thai rice, he said. Thai 100% grade B rice is currently offered at about $ 325 a metric ton, free-on-board Bangkok. Thailand likely to produce more rice for export, given its favorable climate, sufficient rainfall and anti-drought in rice growing areas, he said. Dec 30, 2013 | Kevin Ferguson Lessons learned: growing rice in Haiti and Vietnam Six months after visiting their counterparts in Vietnam to compare rice-growing methods, an Oxfam-Americaled delegation of Haitian farmers and agronomists reports that one of those methods used in Vietnam, the System of Rice Intensification (SRI), has begun to take root in Haiti‟s Artibonite Valley.The reason for SRI‟s growing popularity in Haiti is clear: Many farmers practicing this method have boosted their rice yields by 50 percent to 100 percent. They include two farmers‟ associations supported by Oxfam America: Movement to Help the Women of Liancourt-Payen commune of Verrettes, and the Irrigators‟ Association of Liancourt. The women‟s farming collective boosted its yield to seven tons per hectare, up from less than five tons the previous year, according to Marie Melisena Robert, president and founder of the 200-member group who was among those who traveled to Vietnam. The Irrigators‟ Association, an association of 450 farmers, saw yields reach seven tons, up from less than four tons per hectare, says Hollange Antoine, the group‟s president.Likewise, in Petite Rivière, the local branch of the Ministry of Agriculture reported that its 2.5-hectare SRI pilot plot yielded 5.7 tons of rice—about double what might otherwise be expected using traditional growing techniques.In plots adjacent to those farmed by the women‟s collective, farmer Présulmé Louis said that he was impressed with SRI and would try it next year. In explaining why he used a more traditional method this year that produced a more moderate two to four tons per hectare, he says, “SRI looked too hard.”Indeed, SRI is not Miracle-Gro. While SRI requires less seed, water and fertilizer than traditional farming techniques, it‟s a labor-intensive approach to rice farming that must be 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

Mesadieu Alexis, president of a water users‟ association and also on the Vietnam trip, echoed those sentiments, noting, “If you apply the [SRI] technical package correctly, you will have good yields. That‟s what we experienced.”Following the SRI guidelines can sometimes be more difficult in Haiti than in Vietnam, members of the delegation report. First, there is the issue of water management. In Vietnam, there is a strong culture of cooperation among farmers—supported by government regulation—to share water resources. In Haiti, farmers working adjacent plots don‟t often agree among themselves and with the government about access to water and management of irrigation canals.Also, in Vietnam the use of herbicides reduces or eliminates the need for weeding SRI plots. Haitians, on the other hand, typically don‟t use herbicides because they could wash into the irrigation canals from which families pull water for drinking and bathing. Consequently, farmers must yank weeds from rice paddies two or three times each season.SRI farming—whether in Vietnam or Haiti—also requires using the right seeds in the right soils at the right time of year. In Haiti, each of those aspects need further study, according to Gérald Telfort, director of research and training for the ODVA, the Ministry of Agriculture‟s Artibonite Valley Development Organization.Following four months of studying the yields of two varieties of Haitian rice grown using two cultivation systems, SRI and one promoted by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Telfort found that in certain circumstances the yields of both systems were comparable. ODVA published the research, sponsored by Oxfam America, in an October report.Despite these challenges, Haitian farmers say they have benefited from SRI. “So, for those farmers who are not using SRI, we are encouraging them to do so,” says Antoine of the Irrigants‟ Association.Oxfam is working with small-scale farmers in Haiti and around the world to help them improve their food and income security.

Govt Says 259 Million Tonne Foodgrain Production Likely This Year December 31, 2013 New Delhi: The year 2013 has been significant for Indian agriculture. The production of foodgrains is likely to reach record level; in a year in which other economic parameters have not been too encouraging, agriculture growth is likely to surpass the target of four percent.Public Investment in the farm sector has gone up and States are constantly being incentivized to come up with new schemes. Credit flow to the sector is increasing year after year. Strategies adopted at the beginning of major cropping seasons for ensuring quality seed and fertilizer are paying dividends. Time bound crop-specific initiatives have been taken and special plans drawn up for new areas with potential for higher yield. Such initiatives have resulted in resurgence of Indian agriculture that is helping the country not only meet the rising domestic demand but also earn precious foreign exchange. INDIAN AGRICULTURE AT A GLANCE Agriculture continues to be the backbone of Indian economy.Agriculture sector employs 58.2% of the total workforce.Agriculture‟s share in India‟s exports increased to 13.08% in 2012-13 from 12.81% in the year 201112. India‟s share of global agri-food product export is 2.1% as per International Trade Statistics 2012.India is largest producer of milk, pulses, livestock, jute, jute like fibres, tea and cauliflower.India is second largest producer of wheat, rice, fruit, sugarcane, groundnut and tobacco.

  10. 10. Against a target of 4% growth over the 11th Plan period, we have achieved a growth rate of 3.64%. Target of Agriculture sector growth remains at 4% during 12th Plan period.The 11th Five Year plan has seen an increase in total food grain production of over 173.38 million tons over the 10th Five Year Plan period. This is despite two years of drought in various parts of the country in 2009-10 and 2010-11.The target of food-grains production for 2013-14 is 259 million tonnes.The production of Wheat and Rice during 2013-14 is expected / targeted to be 92.50 million tonnes and 105 million tonnes respectively. The production of pulses during 2012-13, as per 4th Advance Estimates is at the record level of 18.45 million tonnes. The target for 2013-14 is 19 million tonnes.Overall increased production is reflected in the stocks with FCI. Against the buffer norm of 21 million tonnes as on 1st October, 2012 we have a stock of more than 66.5 million tonnes. From a position of having to import about 6 million tons of wheat in 2006-07, the country today has become a net exporter of wheat and rice.Due to special initiative of the Ministry, an area of around 15 lakh hectares has been brought under summer pulses.Cotton production in India has increased 3.5 times in a span of a decade and reached a peak of 35.20 million bales in 2011-12. (1 bale= 170 kgs) as compared to 8.6 million bales in 2002-03. During the same period productivity has increased from 191 Kg/ha to 491 Kg/ha. Cotton production is estimated at record level of 35.30 million bales in 2013-14 as per 1st Advance Estimates. As per 1st Advance Estimates the production of sugarcane in 2013-14 is expected to be 341.77 million tonnes as against the target of 340.00 million tonnes.MSP of major crops such as paddy, wheat and pulses have increased by more than 100% between 2004-05 and 2013-14.The strategies for rejuvenating agriculture sector to achieve 4% per annum rate of growth have been working which is seen by the fact that estimated growth in the Agriculture & Allied Sectors during the 11th Plan (3.64%) is higher than that achieved during the 9th Plan (2.5%) and 10th Plan (2.4%).As per CSO, the agriculture and allied sector had grown at 1.9% during 2012-13. As per estimates released by CSO on 29.11.2013, the first half (April to September) of 2013 agriculture sector registered a growth rate of 3.6%.Gross Capital Formation (GCF) in agriculture and allied sectors as a proportion of the GDP in the sector stagnated at around 14% during 2004-05 to 2006-07.
