NEWS DETAILS: Cyclone ‘Helen’ Flattens Rice Crop in Over 460,000 Hectares in India; Cyclone ‘Lehar’ Approaches Cyclone “Helen” has damaged ready-to-harvest rice crop in an estimated 460,000 hectares in India’s southern state of Andhra Pradesh, dashing India’s hopes of producing over 100 million tons of rice in 2013-14 and triggering speculations of high rice prices in the coming months.Andhra Pradesh is a key rice producing state in India and accounts for around 10% of India’s total annual rice production. Some crop damage was seen due to cyclone “Phailin” last month, but the loss due to cyclone "Helen" which struck the most fertile region of the state on November 22-23, 2013. Experts cut India’s 2013-14 rice production forecast by around 4% from 104 million tons to 100 million tons due to cyclone “Phailin” damages. However, losses are likely to higher due cyclone “Helen” because the crop was ready to harvest. Local sources said, “Rice fields were completely flattened by strong winds making it impossible for any recovery. Most farmers in the region are shocked.” They add that crop losses are likely to surge as farmers in the region brace-up for a very severe cyclonic storm “Lehar” which is likely to hit Andhra Pradesh on November 28, 2013, according to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD). Cyclone “Lehar” is also likely to affect ready-to-harvest rice crop in the state of Odisha, another key rice producing state which bore the brunt of cyclone Phailin last month.Rice prices were expected to drop in the coming months due to the harvest of the main crop, but local traders in Andhra Pradesh say there would be no respite from high prices due to reduced supplies.

Thai Rice Exporters Association Increases 2013 Export Forecast to 7 Million Tons Nov 25, 2013

The Thai Rice Exporters Association (TREA) says that Thailand’s 2013 rice exports are expected to improve to around 7 million tons, unchanged from previous year’s levels but up around 8% from TREA’s previous forecast

of 6.5 million tons.Thailand’s rice exports have remained slow in the first three quarters of 2013 partly due to high prices. According to TREA, Thailand has shipped only about 4.64 million tons of rice in January – September 2013. However, rice exports are expected to rebound during November – February when Thai rice prices dip to their lowest due to new arrivals from the main crop harvest.Supplies are increasing as the government is keen to sell rice from its stockpile to generate funds for its rice mortgage program, while prices drop due to delays in payments under the program and limits on government purchase of paddy rice per household. According to the TREA president, the price gap between Thai, Indian, and Viet rice has narrowed significantly in the last few weeks. Lower prices should propel exports in the coming months, the TREA president says. Tags: Thailand rice exports, Thai Rice Exporters Association

Oryza Overnight Recap – Chicago Rough Rice Futures Begin Week a Touch Higher Nov 25, 2013

Chicago rough rice futures for January delivery are currently paused 1.5 cents per cwt (about $0.33 per ton) higher at $15.730 per cwt (about $347 per ton) as of 8:00am Chicago time. The other grains are seen mixed this morning ahead of floor trading in Chicago: soybeans are currently seen about 0.4% lower, wheat is seen about 0.7% higher, and corn is paused about 0.1% higher.U.S. stock index futures pointed to a higher open on Wall Street on Monday and extend last week's record while crude prices declined after a preliminary accord was brokered between Iran and world powers on that country's nuclear program. The interim agreement between Iran and the U.S. and five other nations would have Iran curtailing its nuclear activities in return for reduced international sanctions on car parts and commodities including oil and gold. The deal prompted shares of airlines to jump, along with those of auto-parts makers. Israel and prominent Republicans have criticized the deal, but President Barack Obama said it was an important step towards a more comprehensive agreement, and that full sanctions could be reinstated in six months if Iran fails to meet its commitments. Oil prices fell sharply on Monday as analysts said the deal could remove the "Middle East premium" from prices over the longer term. A strong finish on Wall Street last week also underpinned gains in Europe and Asia. The S&P 500 recorded its first close above 1,800 and the Dow posted its longest weekly winning streak in nearly three years. U.S. stock index futures are currently trading about 0.3% higher, gold is currently trading about 1.1% lower, crude oil is seen trading about 1.4% lower, and the U.S. dollar is currently trading about 0.3% higher at 8:00am Chicago time.

Oryza Afternoon Recap – Chicago Rough Rice Futures Begin Shortened Holiday Week on Positive Note; Grains Firm, Despite Stronger U.S. Dollar Nov 25, 2013

Chicago rough rice futures for January delivery settled 9 cents per cwt (about $2 per ton) higher at $15.805 per cwt (about $348 per ton). Rough rice futures finished higher on the first day of the shortened holiday week. Overall the market remains trapped within a $15.600-$15.900 per cwt (about $344-$351 per ton) trading range, with little in the way of an indication that this range will soon be violated. Fundamentally this is usually a quiet time for the market as physical traders take time off to enjoy the holiday. A firmer grain complex provided a supportive backdrop today; soybeans finished the day about 0.7% higher at $13.2925 per bushel; wheat finished about 0.5% higher at $6.5250 per bushel; and corn finished the day about 0.6% higher at $4.2475 per bushel.U.S. stocks traveled modestly higher on Monday, lifting the S&P 500 and Dow to records and with the Nasdaq Composite above 4,000 for the first time in 13 years, as Wall Street considered an unexpected drop in pending home sales in October and an agreement by Iran to limit its nuclear program. The Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced. After climbing to an intraday record of 1,808.11, the S&P 500 wobbled on either side of neutral, with health care and financials the best performing and energy and materials faring the worst among its 10 major sectors. The Nasdaq also shifted between gains and losses, after climbing above 4,000 for the first time since September 2000. U.S. stock markets are currently trading up about 0.2%, gold is trading nearly about 0.1% lower, crude oil is seen trading about 0.9% lower, and the U.S. dollar is seen trading about 0.3% higher at about 2:00pm Chicago time.Looking to the daily continuation chart of Chicago rough rice futures for January delivery, the market got off to a positive start for the week but remains within the current sideways trading range. Underlying support continues to be noted at $15.670 per cwt (about $345 per ton) a point at which the 100-day and 200-day moving averages have converged, and will likely come into play during an attempt by the bears to pull prices lower. To the upside, nearby technical resistance is noted at $15.895 per cwt (about $350 per ton) provided by the recent market high. Beyond this the upper Bollinger band, which is currently noted near $16.050 per cwt (about $354 per ton), acts as the current price objective. Today’s trading range is noted as $15.705-$15.850 per cwt (about $346-$349 per ton).Friday, there were 622 contracts traded, up from 350 contracts traded on Thursday.

New Rice Dishes for an Old Favorite Nov 25, 2013

Thanksgiving is one of the oldest and most enjoyed U.S. holidays. As Americans gear up for Thanksgiving festivities this week, we thought it would be fun to bring you some rice recipes that can hold their own next to the turkey.

The two dishes below both take rice and add some surprising ingredients to create a whole new dish. The first recipe uses white rice and is baked – a perfect alternative or complement to traditional Thanksgiving stuffing. The second recipe uses the nuttier, chewier brown rice in a cold salad for a refreshing twist. Green Rice Casserole This hot casserole harkens back to older days but is revived with the addition of fresh herbs. If you like your stuffing on the side instead of in the bird, this is a nice alternative. Ingredients: 3 cups cooked white rice 1 cup chopped fresh parsley ¾ cup shredded cheese (cheddar is a good choice) 1/3 cup chopped onion ½ cup chopped green bell pepper 1 clove garlic 2 eggs 1 - 14 ounce can of coconut milk (choose light if you’re watching fat/calories) 1/3 cup vegetable oil 1 ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon black pepper Lemon Paprika (for garnish) Feel free to add other vegetables/herbs if you’d like – zucchini or broccoli might be a nice touch for some more green! Procedure: 1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13 inch backing dish with nonstick cooking spray. 2. Mix the cooked rice, parsley, cheese, onion, bell pepper, and garlic. 3. Separately, mix the eggs, coconut milk, oil, salt, black pepper, juice and zest from the lemon, and other spices as desired. 4. Combine the two bowls together and mix well. 5. Pour into baking dish and garnish with paprika if desired. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the casserole is bubbly and firm. Orange Rice Salad More like a couscous or cold grain salad, this recipe highlights bright fruit and herbs for a refreshing light meal or side dish. Feel free to experiment with the additives to see what your taste buds prefer.

Ingredients: 2 cups cooked brown rice ½ cup celery, chopped ¾ cup raisins or cranberries (or other dried fruit) ¼ cup nuts (walnuts or pecans work well) 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 1 tablespoon orange juice or vinegar (orange juice will make it sweeter, vinegar will make it tarter) ¼ cup fresh chopped parsley 3 green onions, chopped 1 – 11 ounce can of mandarin oranges with juice Salt and pepper and spices to taste Add other crunchy vegetables for more flavor – bell peppers or carrots give a nice crunch! Procedure: Mix all ingredients together and chill for an hour to allow flavors to mingle.

Cambodian Jasmine Rice, California Calrose Rice Are Co-Winners of 2013 World’s Tastiest Rice Award Nov 23, 2013

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


Cambodian Jasmine rice and California Calrose (Japonica) rice were adjudged the co-winners of 2013 world’s best in taste at the Competitive Rice Tasting event at the Rice Traders World Rice Conference held in Hong Kong earlier this week.This is the second consecutive year that Cambodia’s Jasmine rice has found a place at the top, according to Federation of Cambodian Rice Exporters (FCRE). FCRE says there is a change in perception among consumers about rice. Earlier, rice was considered as a commodity and a general food item, but now rice is increasingly getting recognized for its taste.Cambodia is located between two top rice exporters Thailand and Vietnam. Rice exporters in Cambodia say that rice from Cambodia is relatively less known compared to Thai and Viet rice, but Cambodian rice is better in taste than rice from the other two origins.Representatives of the U.S. rice industry say that California Calrose rice was close to winning this award for several years now and the award is the result of one 100 years of variety development by the Industry and the California Rice Experiment Station.
