Most people know flooded rice fields provide a major food energy source for ducks as they make their way south in late fall. But what would happen if there was no rice in the fields that provide stopovers for the birds on their way to winter quarters?.Mark Petrie, manager of conservation planning for Ducks Unlimited in Memphis, Tenn., discussed a study that pinpoints how much U.S. rice acres contribute to migrating waterfowl on their annual treks during a presentation at the USA Rice Federation‟s Outlook Conference in St. Louis.The North American Waterfowl Management Plan, a joint effort between the U.S., Canada and Mexico, has established continental population objectives for waterfowl and created a total of 24 regional joint ventures in the U.S. and Canada to deliver the plan. “Five of those joint ventures are focused primarily on breeding waterfowl,” Petrie said. “But 19 of them are focused primarily on migrating-wintering waterfowl, and the important point I want to make is that 50 percent of all wintering, dabbling ducks in the U.S. occur in just three of those joint ventures.“And those three joint 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
  • 3. ventures coincide with the major rice growing areas in the U.S. We have the Central Valley Joint Venture in California, the Gulf Coast Joint Venture in Louisiana and Texas and the Lower Mississippi Valley Joint Venture in the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi and west Tennessee.”Collectively, those three areas winter half the waterfowl in the U.S., and contain almost all the rice acreage, he notes. They also have about 75 percent of all pintails, which have been a concern in the waterfowl management community for about three decades. “The connection between pintails and rice is a very strong one and one that is widely recognized. ”When you look at the food demand from ducks in the three joint venture areas, it‟s almost a bell-shaped curve that starts at low levels in September and gradually rises in October, November and December and then slowly declines in January, February and March.The amount of food for the ducks – a combination of the vegetation remaining in rice fields, coastal marshes and forested wetlands – follows a similar pattern that, fortunately, is significantly higher than the demand from waterfowl. In the Gulf Coast joint venture, for example, flooded rice fields accounts for 42 percent of the food available to ducks.What happens if you remove rice from the system? “Basically, birds would run out of food in that early-winter or late-winter period,” said Petrie.Ducks Unlimited staff members looked at what it would take to establish these rice areas if they weren‟t there and came up with some staggering totals for purchasing the land, restoring them so they could be flooded and maintaining and flooding them on an annual basis.“We estimate the cost of replacing the rice acres in the Central Valley of California, for example, at $2.2 billion,” he said. “And we estimate the operating and maintenance costs of keeping the land in rice and flooded at $25 million to $30 million annually.All of those costs are now born by rice farmers and, "quite frankly, public agencies simply don‟t have the resources to provide those resources these days and are, in fact, walking away from them in some cases.”Petrie said the loss of rice acres in the Gulf Coast area of Texas due to a lack of water are already documented. And what‟s happening with rice varieties in the Lower Mississippi Valley is also having an impact.“What‟s transpiring in the Mississippi Valley over time is as producers have gone to earlier maturing varieties, those fields are being harvested two to three months before the birds begin to show up,” says Petrie. “By the time the birds actually get there a lot of that waste rice has been consumed by other critters.”Experts believe that even if only a relatively small percentage of the rice base in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley is ratoon cropped, it could offer tremendous potential to reverse that trend.The lack of snowpack and the resulting drawdown of the reservoirs that serve the California rice area are also creating concerns about food supplies for waterfowl in that region.Petrie said the final report, which is being funded in part by the Rice Foundation, is expected to be released in March of 2014.

  • 4. Louisiana rice producers achieve record yields in 2013 Dec. 12, 2013 Many Louisiana rice growers didn‟t think much of their crop‟s chances at the beginning of the 2013 season. But what started out looking like a disaster turned into a pretty good year. The LSU AgCenter‟s John Saichuk discussed the year in this video from the USA Rice Outlook Conference in St. Louis. Louisiana growers harvested an estimated state-wide yield average of 7,200 pounds per acre, including ratoon-crop or second-crop rice. That would be up from the previous high of 6,600 pounds. Louisiana's long growing season often allows them to grow and harvest a second crop from their original crop planting.“We think we have set a real, significant record in Louisiana this year,” said Johnny Saichuk, Extension rice specialist with the LSU AgCenter. “From the conversations we‟ve had with our farmers we think we may be around 7,200, second crop included, well above anything before.”Louisiana‟s second crop acreage also expanded,” he said. “We had over 130,000 acres of second crop rice, which is one of our highest totals in a number of years. Someone asked me if we were through harvesting for the year, and I don‟t know. I do know we cut our last verification field on Nov. 30, the latest we‟ve ever done.”Saichuk said he believes Louisiana‟s rice acreage will be about the same in 2014 as it was in 2013 with the possible exception of an increase in hybrid rice, which appears to be gaining ground in Louisiana because of its higher yield potential.Another development he reported at the Rice Outlook Conference was the growth in special purpose rice in 2013. Louisiana growers harvested 30,000 acres, most of it the Jazzman 2 line of aromatic rice. Growers also planted the Jazzman, Sabine and Hidalgo varieties.

From beginning to end, the process needs to follow a clear step by step system in order to receive certification. While demand is on the rise, the market is still puny compared to Cambodia‟s staple milled rice product. On the strength of more interest in the US and EU, CEDAC estimates it will export 320 tonnes of organic rice in 2013, compared with 100 tonnes for all of last year. In the first 10 months this year, Cambodia exported nearly 300,000 tonnes of non-organic rice.As part of the agreement, starting in early 2014, Mekong Oryza Trading will 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

Speaking at the signing at the Rural Development Bank in Phnom Penh, Hun Lak, managing director of Mekong Oryza Trading, said that Cambodia should capitalise while it can.“[Producing] organic rice is our great opportunity,” Lak said.Yang Saing Koma, president of CEDAC, said there are 5,000 households applying organic rice methods on their farms. Farmers from 26 provinces threatens to close highways in protest of a delay in rice payment scheme Friday, 13 December 2013 By NNT – BANGKOK, 13 December 2013 Rice farmers from 26 provinces have threatened to close highways in their areas if the government fails to speedily accelerate payments to farmers who have pledged rice with the government. Prasit Boonchoey, Thai Rice Farmers Association president, said farmers demanded the caretaker government to continue the payment to farmers who had already sold their rice from 2013/2014 cropping season to the government under the rice pledging scheme.According to Prasit, a large number of farmers are still unpaid and they are now in financial troubles, lacking funds to invest in the next crop. They also cannot pay their debts incurred from buying fertilizers, insecticides, seedlings and land rents for the last crop.However, Niwatthamrong Bunsongphaisan, the caretaker minister of Commerce assured that the government had enough money to pay all farmers. The delay has been caused by the bottleneck in the registration procedures and preparations by rice millers. The government has already set aside 270 billion baht in budget for the first round of the rice pledging scheme in the 2013/2014 harvesting season while that for the second crop should have to wait for a new government to handle it. Govt. to procure 5 lakh tonnes of rice for Anna Bhagya scheme Ration shops to be kept open for first 10 days of every month from January 1 The State government has decided to procure five lakh tonnes of rice from mills to meet the requirement of the Anna Bhagya scheme.Mill owners will be paid Rs. 2,400 per quintal of rice. The flagship programme of the Congress government in the State provides 30 kg of rice per month to BPL families at Re. 1 a kg. Compulsory Mill owners would be told to supply the commodity to the government compulsorily for effective implementation of the scheme.A Cabinet meeting, chaired by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Thursday, decided to procure the Jyothi variety of paddy (boiled rice) from farmers by paying Rs. 1,600 per quintal. It had already decided to procure other variety of paddy from farmers at Rs. 1,600 per quintal.

  • 6. A decision has been taken to direct owners of open public distribution system (PDS) ration shops to keep shops open for the first 10 days of every month from January 1, 2014.Informing presspersons on the Cabinet decisions, Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs T.B. Jayanchandra said it has been decided to release Rs. 235.92 crore for providing food items to families of police and Fire and Emergency services personnel and midday meals to Class 9 and 10 students.The Cabinet also decided to release Rs. 14.71 crore for preparations for the caste census, which would look into the socio-economic and employment status of all castes in the State. The census would be conducted in April and May 2014, based on the 2011 Census model.The total cost has been estimated at Rs. 97.3 crore. Schoolteachers and officials of other departments would be roped in for the conduct of the survey. He said the Chairman for the Backward Classes Commission would be appointed soon.It was decided to release Rs. 314 crore for the Education Department for implementation of the Ksheera Bhagya scheme for schoolchildren.The minimum support price for palm oil has been fixed at Rs. 8,500 per tonne for the year 201314, costing the State exchequer Rs. 281.4 crore, he said.A mini Vidhana Soudha would be constructed near Nanjangud in Mysore district at a cost of Rs. 12 crore.To tackle malnutrition in Chincholi in Gulbarga and Devadurga in Raichur districts, the Karnataka Nutrition Mission would implement the scheme in two taluks by spending Rs. 30 crore from various donor agencies, Mr. Jayachandra said.

Such purchases picked up from 23.39 lakh tonnes last paddy season to 28.95 lakh tonnes this season, a jump of about 24 per cent.Paddy procurement by government agencies has dropped five per cent, as compared to the last paddy season. Looking at the figures, Mandi (market) Board chairman Ajmer Singh Lakhowal has asked officials to conduct an inquiry to find where paddy procured by private purchasers has been stocked so that they can establish the price at which they procured it from farmers and how it differs from the price at which they are putting it on sale.Mandi Board records say though the government had set a minimum support price of Rs 1,345 per quintal, the actual price has fallen as low as Rs 1,285 per quintal. A few varieties got up to Rs 2,500 per quintal.Purchases at low cost were made by private agencies alone, board sources say.

  • 7. They alleged that some agencies sought to cover up high sales, and cited the example of a sale of 135 bags being shown as 130 bags to remove all traces of purchases below the MSP. Lakhowal says, "In the absence of any complaints from farmers, we are not able to act against any agency in particular. But we are investigating this racket at our own level because figures indicate that purchase by private agencies jumped 24 per cent, and our survey reveals that over 15 per cent paddy was sold below the MSP."As per the data till December 10, purchase by government agencies this year was 121.20 lakh tonnes against 127.39 lakh tonnes last year, a decrease of 5%. Farmers have already protested at various mandis over poor paddy procurement this season and over poor Basmati shippers in a soup as Iran stops purchases Sutanuka Ghosal & Prashant Krar, ET Bureau | Dec 13, 2013, 11.10AM IST KOLKATA/CHANDIGARH: Indian basmati rice exporters have suffered a jolt as Iran has stopped purchasing the cereal from the world market since October. The Islamic republic is weighing its options following the withdrawal of sanctions by the US and five other nations and has not invited bids for procuring rice. India is a major exporter of the Pusa 1121 variety to Iran. Talking to ET, All India Rice Exporters' Association president MP Jindal said, "It is true that Iran is not picking up rice from India for the past three months. But that is a temporary phenomenon. We have learnt that the country will place orders by early January. They are now liquidating the stock that they have in their warehouses." Earlier, Western sanctions forced India to trim oil purchases from Iran but the latter remained a loyal and large customer. As sanctions stalled dollar payments in 2012, Iran started settling part of its oil debt in rupees and Iran was making use of rupee transactions to buy goods from India. The rupee trade gave New Delhi an edge over other rice suppliers such as Islamabad which do not have such huge debts with Tehran. This enabled India to establish a near monopoly in exports. India is expected to export 40 lakh tonne of basmati rice in the current fiscal. Of this, 12 lakh tonne is expected to be imported by Iran and the rest 28 lakh tonne is expected to go to Europe and Saudi Arabia. Jindal said exports were 21 lakh tonne till October 20. The international price of basmati is at $1,450 per tonne in the current fiscal compared to $1,100 per tonne in 2012-13. In rupees, prices are in the range of Rs 5,400 to Rs 6,200 per quintal compared to Rs 2,500 to Rs 3,500 per quintal in 2012-13. Better prices in overseas markets have also pushed up basmati prices helping farmers to earn 60 per cent-80 per cent more vis-a-vis the previous fiscal. Traders say prices are expected to remain strong due to good demand and an overall spike in prices of agriculture commodities. Reports of low output due to erratic rains during the growing phase of the variety have also increased the price trend.

  • 8. Paddy Lifting Moves at Snail's Pace By Express News Service - SAMBALPUR Published: 13th December 2013 09:18 AM Last Updated: 13th December 2013 09:18 AM Paddy procurement is going on at a snail‟s pace in the district despite the intervention of Managing Director of Odisha State Civil Supplies Corporation (OSCSC) Suresh Kumar Vashishth and Collector Balwant Singh.While Vashishth brought about a rapprochement between farmers and millers and stressed on the need for compromise by both the parties, Singh had warned of stern action against millers if they did not lift paddy and make immediate online payment to farmers. According to reports, about 51,000 bags of paddy were lying in various market yards across the district even as more stocks were reaching the market yards till Wednesday evening. Food and Civil Supplies Officer Bijay Rath said lifting process is on and about 25,000 bags were transported on Thursday.Sources said the millers were not cooperating in transportation of paddy to the rice mills even though it has been procured by the agencies concerned. Besides, the millers are deducting the weight of paddy on account of foreign body content and have slowed down lifting, they added.As per norms, the procuring agencies make payment to the farmers only after the paddy is lifted. As the millers are deliberately delaying in lifting the stock, the payment has also been held back. As a result, the farmers are selling their stock to outsiders at a lower rate for instant payment. The worst affected area is Kuchinda sub-division where the farmers alleged that their produce is rejected by the agencies on some plea or the other.Advisor of Sambalpur Zilla Krushak Surakhya Sangathan Ashok Pradhan said online payment to farmers was a „hog wash‟ and the farmers were not getting their dues on time.Stating that Kuchinda subdivision had fallen prey to unholy nexus of millers, procurement agencies and Government officials, he said the district administration should intervene in the matter.
