Last year’s production was about 470 million tons, and this 1% increase is mostly due to increased output in Asia. Correspondingly, global rice use is also set to increase about 1% from last year.This production projection is 3 million tons higher than IGC’s forecast a month earlier, after weather in India did not negatively affect the kharif (summer) harvest there as much as anticipated. The projected production increase comes despite expected minor declines in China’s production since last month. Production in South America is also expected to rise to a three-year high of 16.4 million tons, about 4% higher than the previous year. Brazil is largely driving this increase due to improved productivity, despite lower acreage plantings.Increased exports to Far East Asia lead IGC to forecast a 3% increase in world trade in 2014.The IGC also projects world stocks in 2013-14 will decline – only slightly, but it’s the first decline in 9 years, and market participants will wonder if this might be a turning point.

  • 7. The UN’s Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) says that global rice trade is estimated to reach around 38.3 million tons in 2014, up about 100,000 tons or around 3% from around 37.3 million tons in 2013.FAO says that Thailand rice exports are expected to increase due to government plans to release rice stocks from its warehouses for sale in domestic and international markets. Rice exports by Pakistan, the U.S, and Vietnam are also expected to increase this year, while India is forecast to remain the top rice exporter this year.Rice imports by Asian countries such as China, Indonesia, Nepal and the Philippines are expected to increase this year due to lower international prices and tight domestic supplies. FAO says that rice imports by African countries and the EU will likely increase in 2014. According to the FAO, global milled rice production in 2013 is estimated to increase by around 0.6% to 493.9 million tons from 491.1 million tons in 2012. Rice production is expected to increase in India, Indonesia, Myanmar and Pakistan in Asia and Brazil, Egypt, Guyana, Nigeria and Paraguay outside Asia. However, rice production in China, the EU, Madagascar, Thailand and the U.S. is expected to decline. The FAO says that rice production may decline in the U.S. and the EU because of the shift in the rice area to other remunerative crops. Production in China and Madagascar is likely to be affected due to weather disruptions, while production in Thailand is expected to due to the discontinuation of the government's pledging program from March 1, 2014 and falling prices. The FAO estimates 2013 paddy rice production in India to increase by nearly 1% to 159.3 million tons over 157.9 million tons in 2012. Vietnam paddy rice production is expected to increase by 1% to 44.1 million tons in 2013 from 43.7 million tons in 2012. However, paddy rice production in Thailand is expected to decline by around 4% to 36.6 million tons from 38 million tons in 2012. Paddy rice production in China is also expected to decline by 0.7% to 204.5 million tons in 2013 from 205.9 million tons in 2012.Global rice stocks are expected to increase to around 179.1 million tons in 2013, up about 4.1 million tons or 2.3% over the 175 million tons stocks in 2012. The increase is attributed to China's attempts to increase its share in world rice reserves to over 55%, and to Thailand's huge stocks that have accumulated from the rice pledging program and a slack export performance. The FAO also expects stocks to increase in Sri Lanka and Vietnam. However, it expects rice stocks in India to fall due to the implementation of the National Food Security Law. It also expects stocks to fall in Pakistan, the Philippines and the U.S. Tags: Global rice trade, global rice production, Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Nigeria Importers Urge Government to Lower Rice Import Duty to $190 Per Ton Mar 06, 2014 Nigeria's rice importers have urged the government to implement the newly agreed duty of $190 per ton on imported rice to combat smuggling via the land borders.Last month, the government had said that it will lower the duty on rice imports from $570 per ton $190 per ton but has so far not done so. Importers say that neighboring country Benin Republic is taking advantage of the government’s non-implementation of the reduced duty.

Less than 100,000 tons of rice was legally imported into Nigeria in 2013, says the RiMIDAN president. This is in comparison to an estimated 2.9 million tons of rice imported by Nigeria last year.Nigeria is aiming to increase local rice production and reduce dependency on imports, and is planning to ban rice imports from 2015. According to the USDA, Nigeria produces around 2.8 million tons of rice and imports around 3 million tons of rice annually. The country’s annual consumption needs are at around 6 million tons.

The tool is aimed to help farmers in reducing their farm expenses by about 50%, according to PhilRice. The tool could help farmers reduce average fertilizer cost per season by almost half from P5,000 (around $112) to P3,000 (around $67) and help boos farm income, PhilRice says. The "Nutrient Manager" tool consists of fifteen questions in English and in five local Filipino languages of Tagalog, Ilocano, Cebuano, Hiligaynon and Bikolano, which farmers have to answer. The program will make recommendations based on farmers' answers to the questions. The questions have been simplified for the benefit of the farmers, say officials. PhilRice's agriculture extension workers have been asked to assist farmers in using the program, which requires internet, and also in responding to the questions. According to PhilRice, extension workers are assisting farmers in Regions I, II and III.The Training Head of the "Nutrient Manager" said the program was the result of 15 years of research on site-specific nutrient management. "Recommendations are based on very extensive studies conducted in different locations in the country,” she adds. A project researcher at the PhilRice said the program is being preferred by many farmers to identify the correct time and correct amount of fertilizer to their lands.

  • 9. Mar 06, 2014 Thailand’s Bank of Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives (BAAC) has urged the caretaker government to pay direct subsidies to farmers to stop growing rice for the 2013-14 second crop (which runs from March 1 to September 30, 2014), according to local sources.The BAAC president told local sources that such a move would curtail new supplies entering the market, which is already reeling under excess supplies and falling market prices. Additional supplies would lead to further drop in prices, the BAAC president says. He cited examples of the U.S. and some European countries which offer subsidies to farmers to grow alternate crops.A Research Fellow from the Thailand Development Research Institute (TDRI) says that the farmers growing rice for the 2013-14 second crop may have to sell their produce at much lower prices compared to the pledging price offered by the Pheu Thai-led government, which has now ended the rice mortgage program. The Thai government started the rice mortgage program in October 2011, and it paid 15,000 baht (around $463) per ton for the 2011-12 first crop (October 1, 2011 to February 29, 2012). However, it reduced the pledging price to 13,000 baht (around $401) per ton from the 2011-12 second crop, which ran from March 1, 2012 to September 30, 2012. In comparison, local paddy prices have now dropped to around 6,500 to 7,500 baht (around $201 - $232) per ton for 20% moisture content and 8,000 to 8,500 baht (around $247 - $262) per ton for 15% moisture content, mainly due to the discontinuation of the rice mortgage program.Export prices of Thai rice have also dropped over the last few weeks according to the Honorary President of the Thai Rice Exporters Association (TREA). He says that the price of Thai 5% broken rice dropped by about 5% or $20 per ton to $415-$425 per ton from $435-$445 per ton three weeks ago. He also says that overseas buyers are waiting for Thai prices to fall further. “Rice buyers have stopped purchasing as they wait for cheaper prices, particularly after the Election Commission set the deadline for repayment of the 20 billion baht at the end of May. This means that Thailand has to sell more than two million tons in the market. When buyers realized this, they decided to wait to buy cheaper rice,” the TREA Honorary President says.Meanwhile, the news of the Thai Foreign Trade Department inking a government-to-government deal with China to sell one million tons of rice has brought some cheers to the Thai exporters.
