Tags: agriculture, commodity, Delta Research and Extension Center, disease, farm, farming, glyphosate drify, harvest, John Michael Riley, market, Mississippi State Universithy Extension Service, planting, rice, row crop, Tim Walker, Weather, yield.ACROSS MISSISSIPPI — After a late start for the planting season raised fears that a hot August could damage the crop, Mississippi’s rice has yielded a high-quality harvest.The Oct. 20 U.S. Department of Agriculture crop progress and condition report indicated the state’s rice crop was 96 percent harvested. The crop’s quality was rated as 50 percent good and 25 percent excellent.Tim Walker, rice agronomist with the Mississippi State University Extension Service, said grain quality is based on several factors, including translucence.Because temperatures were so mild this summer, chalk is down considerably compared to the last few years,” Walker said. “Clear, as opposed to opaque, rice helps us in the marketplace and makes us competitive with South American rice, namely rice from Uruguay and Brazil.”Walker, who works out of the Delta Research and Extension Center in Stoneville, said rice producers had a reason to fear summer heat.“We had only planted 15 percent of the crop by the first of May,” he said. “Typically we would be about 60 percent planted by then, and in 2012 we were at 95 percent planted, so we felt very behind. But fortunately, the whole year had very mild temperatures. This year was in the top five in terms of coolest temperatures in the last 84 years.” Disease and pest pressure were both light this season, which benefitted the crop.“There were a few instances of leaf blast in a couple varieties, but no associated yield reductions,” Walker said. “Late-season stink bugs were our biggest pest problem, but they impacted about the first 50 percent of the crop, and after that stink bug pressure subsided.”As in most years when springtime is wet, glyphosate drift was a challenge for rice growers. Walker said he ended up replanting more rice than usual because of drift damage and slow growing conditions.Mississippi growers planted 122,000 acres in rice this year, down about 4,000 acres from 2012. The most recent USDA report is from September, and it predicted yields of 7,100 pounds per acre. Walker said he expects final figures to be higher. John Michael Riley, Extension agricultural economist, said he expects yields to compensate for decreased acreage. The August rice stocks report from USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service revealed a total of 30.52 million hundredweight in inventories across the U.S., 15% below last year’s totals.“Those who have the land and machinery more suited to rice are staying in the game,” Riley said. “Nationally, there were fewer acres this year, but that may be offset just a bit by slightly higher yields. Total U.S. production is currently projected to be down 7 percent from 2012.”Riley said better prices are the result of low supplies carried over from last year and a smaller 2013 crop.“The September rice futures contract finished at $16.15 per hundredweight, which was about $1 higher than one year ago,” he said. “Currently, the November contract is at $15.54, about $1 higher than last year.”

Larry Falconer, an Extension agricultural economist in Stoneville, said rice producers may have lower production costs in 2014.“It appears that fertilizer prices will be considerably below prices seen early this year,” Falconer said. “Urea prices, the primary source used for nitrogen, are down 26 percent from this time last year, and diesel prices are down about 8 percent.”If these price levels hold through next season, growers could see production costs drop by as much as $40 per acre, depending on the production system used.Rice growers may soon have more good news out of the Delta Research and Extension Center in the form of a potential new variety of rice.Walker, who is also a researcher with the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, said the seed now growing in research plots in Puerto Rico will be harvested in February and planted in Mississippi for the final stages of testing.

Can Tho targets 1.3 mln tonnes of rice in 2014 The Mekong Delta city of Can Tho has deployed its paddy rice production plan for 2014, targeting an output of 1.3 million tonnes. Local authorities decided to broaden VietGAP and Global GAP standard largescale rice fields to 14,000-20,000 hectares in the year in a bid to increase the output of high-quality rice to help farmers earn higher incomes.As a regional granary, Can Tho has set to gradually speed up the ecological rice farming process as well as renovate its processing technology to churn out rice products of high economic value.In 2013, rice productivity in the locality averaged 5.77 tonnes per hectare on the total rice farming area of 236.538 hectares, giving a yield of over (Photo:VNA) 1.36 million tonnes of paddy rice.Can Tho has set a target of exporting 860,000 tonnes of rice in the year, up 40,000 tonnes from 2012.As by October 14, the city shipped 755,000 tonnes of rice, earning 359.7 million USD, showing a year on year rise of 14 percent in volume and 22 percent in value.Apart from main markets in Asia, Africa, Europe, Oceania and the US, there are many new customers registered to buy rice from Can Tho.

Thai rice exports in September still expand at a declining rate Thursday, 31 October 2013By NNT

BANGKOK, 30 October 2013 The Thai Rice Exporters Association has reported that the nation's rice exports last month expanded 27.2% compared to the same period last year, but the figure was 4 % lower than that of August 2013. According to the association, September’s rice exports stood at about 501,600 tons, while the figure in the first 9 months of 2013 indicated a 1.8% decline, with only 4.6 million tons of rice exported.The association said the decline was due to a drop in exports of Jasmine rice and steamed rice. However, the association reported that prices of Thai rice have recently become more competitive, falling to the lowest level in 3 years which would be favorable to October’s rice exports. Exports of 5% white rice are currently priced at 432 US dollars per ton.It is expected that Thailand will be selling around 600,000 tons of rice in October due to the fact that Thai rice now shares the same price range as those offered by rival exporters.

Viet rice exporters seek help By Joel E. Zurbano | Posted on October 31, 2013 at 12:01am | 339 views

An organization of rice traders in Vietnam has sought the help of Customs Commissioner Rufino Biazon over its expired Quarantine Restriction or QR permit that has made it difficult for its members to export rice to the Philippines.The Vietnam Food Association, the official regulatory body of rice exporters in Vietnam, asked Biazon to comment on the letter it sent to the Bureau of Customs with regard to the QR permit on rice importation.In its letter to Customs dated Oct. 10, the group said that, with the expiration of QRs, import permits were no longer necessary for rice to enter the country provided the applicable tariff rate of 50 percent “is paid by the importing entity after compliance with customs procedures.”“We are of the position that the WTO-QR on rice entering the Philippines expired on June 30, 2012 and as a member country of the WTO, we are aware that the QR in favor of the Philippines has not been extended,” said VFA representative Pham Van Bay. All WTO member countries have agreed to improve market access and reduce trade-distorting subsidies and restrictions in agriculture. The VFA, however, granted the Philippines “special treatment” for rice and was allowed to impose quantitative restrictions on its importation from 1995 to 2005.While allowed an extension in 2004, after the “special treatment” first expired, the extension expired in June 2012. Representatives from the Department of Agriculture have been tasked to obtain extensions of the privilege but they have twice been denied by the WTO.While Agriculture Department insists on negotiating another extension, other agricultural groups have expressed concern that this may be pursued at the expense of the livestock and poultry sectors. Hog raisers had previously disclosed that the tariffs on meat products were reduced “as a concession” for the retention of QR on rice from 2007 to 2012, when the tariff on pork offal was reduced to 5 percent from 40 percent. This week, the department’s attached agency, the National Food Authority, also came under fire for impounding the rice shipments of private importers in the Port of Davao though the latter’s lawyers had officially coordinated the importation with the agency as evidenced by their Aug. 20 and Sept. 10 letters addressed to NFA administrator Orlan Calayag.“Unless the Philippines is ready and willing to admit publicly that it has no intention of complying with its commitments under the WTO, it has no choice but to allow the importation of rice without QR,” said lawyer Benito Salazar, legal counsel of Silent Royalty Marketing and Stracraft International.“If your good office insists to the contrary, then the country should be properly informed and

advised to prepare for dispute cases to be initiated by WTO members and the possible sanction that will be imposed.” Officially, the department’s own Food Staples Self-Sufficiency Program recommends that the country “allow the expiration of QRs by 2012.”Economist Roehlano Briones of the Philippine Institute for Developmental Studies had proposed the same in order for “consumers to benefit from cheaper rice.”“Competition gives farmers an opportunity to improve efficiency, raise competitiveness or even shift to other commodities, which can offer them greater returns, such as high-value c

Rice price likely to come down Bangalore, Oct 30, 2013, dhns: Citizens incessantly battered by the soaring food prices over the last few months can now breathe easy: Prices of rice are most likely to decrease further as good paddy crop is expected in the coming harvest season. According to the State Agriculture department, kharif paddy production is expected to be about 40.23 lakh tonne against 39.83 lakh tonnes last year. As a result of bountiful monsoon, paddy has been sown on 10.45 lakh hectare, which is about one lakh hectare more compared to last year. In anticipation of good paddy harvest beginning in November, traders have been releasing old rice stocks to the market in the last few weeks, bringing down the prices. The prices of widely-used Sona Masuri and Sona Steam varieties have plunged from average Rs 60 per kg to Rs 45 per kg and from Rs 40 per kg to 34 per kg (consumer prices) respectively. Price of Dosa rice (IR 64 variety) too has come down. “We are expecting good crop in the coming harvest season. Paddy production is expected about 10 per cent more than the actual target. There will be huge flow of rice to the market and the prices are expected to go further down after the harvest season,� Ramesh Chandra Lahoti, the president of Bangalore Wholesale Foodgrains and Pulses Merchants’ Association said.All dams and irrigation canals are full this year. The farmers will therefore go in for second paddy crop (also called summer crop), the harvest of which is expected in March-April next year. This may also being down the prices, he added. The price of rice had hit the roof owing to successive drought for two years

Agriculture department to promote new rice variety Paul Fernandes, TNN | Oct 31, 2013, 02.12 PM IST

PANAJI: The agriculture department is trying to promote the Makam variety of rice, the new high yielding variety of rice due to several advantages over the traditional and age-old Jyoti variety."We will distribute 500 kg of seed rice to farmers to begin with," an agriculture department source said. The farmers in different areas will received a 3kg kit of the new rice variety.ICAR research complex at Old Goa has also distributed the seed in various villages and farmers have already started cultivating the red kernel rice variety. ICAR scientists lamented that farmers in Goa are not willing to accept new technology. "But this rice variety has advantages over the age-old Jyoti variety, which is preferred by farmers," the agriculture department official said. The yield is a few times more than Jyoti variety while Makam has also better resistance to

pests. Farmers in Goa prefer Jyoti variety due to its taste but agronomists vouch for the equally good nutritive value and taste of Makam, besides a few advantages.

Government to issue first tender for rice export this season Daily News Egypt / October 31, 2013 / 0 Comments / 219 Views Federation of Egyptian Industries: 100,000 tons to be exported from 7 November to 15 January By Doaa Farid Egypt plans to export 100,000 tons of rice between 7 November and 15 January, an official within the Federation of Egyptian Industries has said, commenting on statements made by Minister of Industry and Foreign Trade Mounir Fakhry Abdel Nour.Abdel Nour had announced a new bid to export 100,000 tons of rice on Monday during a meeting with the Egyptian Businessmen Association, according to a statement from the ministry. Vice Chairman of the Rice Division in the Federation of Egyptian Industries Mostafa Attallah said that this quantity is a surplus amount from the local market, and noted that this will not affect the supply provided to local consumers.However, Minister of Supply and Internal Trade Mohamed Abo Shady announced earlier in October that he had agreed with Prime Minister Hazem El-Beblawi not to export rice until all ration card related needs for the grain are met, which according to state-owned Al-Ahram amounts to 1.4 million tons per year. Abo Shady, citing statistics from the Ministry of Agriculture, stated that 2.2 million acres of rice were planted in 2013 and that rice production is expected to reach 7.5 million tons.Last year Egypt exported 650,000 tons of rice “to 58 countries in Europe and the Arab region,” Attllah said, adding that the international markets for Egyptian rice are increasing year on year.According to Attallah, the government wants to reduce its rice cultivation because of its heavy water consumption. “But the farmers are continuing sowing rice as it is profitable for them,” he said, since the crop’s price per ton can reach EGP 1,250. Meanwhile, Abo Shady discussed with Bulgaria’s Ambassador to Cairo importing wheat and food oil from Bulgaria with competitive prices during a 23 October meeting, according to a statement published on the ministry’s website.The Federation of Egyptian Industries is a semi-governmental organisation comprised of members elected by the general assemblies of various industrial companies, and headed by representatives of government ministries.

Review ban on rice imports The Ghana-Ivory Coast Rice Importers and Sellers Association has made a passionate appeal to President John Dramani Mahama to as a matter of urgency, lift the ban imposed on the importation of rice through all landed frontiers in the country.At a press conference in Kumasi where they made the appeal, members of the association contended that importing rice through only the Kotoka International Airport, the Tema and the Takoradi ports as directed by the Ministry of Trade and Industry, was likely to create a monopoly for foreigners who operated those businesses and kick indigenous Ghanaians out of business. “Implementing such a policy will also increase the cost of transacting business in Ghana and create social agitation and civil unrest because businessmen will pass the increased cost to consumers for them to agitate against the high cost of living,” the Secretary of the association, Mr Mensah Bonsu, declared during the press conference.It was on the theme: “The dangers and effects of the ban on the importation of rice into Ghana by land”.Members of the association wore red bands and chanted war songs.In the October 14, 2013 issue of the Daily Graphic, the Ministry of Trade and Industry issued a notice to rice importers that with effect from November 1, 2013, “all imports of rice shall be done through only the Kotoka International Airport, the Tema and the Takoradi ports”.It also directed that “importation of rice through all land frontiers shall be illegal and haulers who cart rice from any land port commit an offence”.The ministry further warned that “any person who fails to comply with any of the directives in this notice or does not cooperate with officers carrying out any specific assignment under this notice shall be prosecuted”. Reacting to the directives, members of the association noted that they had always paid their duties at the ports of entry and wondered why the minister was using tax evasion as an excuse to ban the importation of rice through landed frontiers.They said it was important for President Mahama to implore the Minister of Trade and Industry to reverse the policy, explaining that implementing it was expected to negatively impact on indigenous small and medium-scale rice importers.“ Already, many of us have taken loans from banks with huge interests to import such products and have made deposits to our suppliers in Cote d’Ivoire to supply us rice, so implementing it will cause us to incur huge losses,” Mr Bonsu declared during the press conference.“If the government goes ahead to implement this policy, it will kill competition, create monopolies, reduce the supply of rice and for these reasons the price of rice will go up in the country,” he declared.He said implementing the policy was also likely to induce smuggling, reduce revenue for the state and further increase the rate of unemployment.

Venezuelan Cereal Production to Increase Further in 2013 31.10.2013

Harvesting of the 2013 winter main maize season and the secondary rice season is well advanced.The aggregate 2013 maize production (winter and summer cropping seasons) is forecast to increase four per cent from last year to about 2.5 million tonnes.The rise in production reflects larger sowings and higher yields due to government support through the provision and financing of agricultural inputs.The 2013 rice production is expected to rise to about 1 million tonnes, 11 per cent up on the previous year’s level as a result of an increase of almost 14 per cent in total planted area over the main summer and secondary winter seasons, especially in the main producing states of Portuguesa and Barinas. Cereal imports forecast higher for the 2013/14 marketing year.Early forecasts for the 2013/14 marketing year (July/June) point to an increase of nine per cent in cereal imports, mainly reflecting sustained demand for both maize and wheat.By contrast, rice imports are tentatively forecast to decrease by some 13 per cent from the previous year as a result of this year’s good production.Food inflation continues to rise.Driven by the high
