The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has estimated Pakistan to export around 3.5 million tons of rice in 2014-15 (May - April), up about 6% from around 3.3 million tons exported in 2013-14 due to expected increased production this year.

The FAO estimates Pakistan's 2014 paddy rice production at around 10.1 million tons (around 6.87 million tons, basis milled), down about 1% from about 10.19 million tons (around 6.93 million tons, basis milled) produced in 2013, due to floods that resulted from heavy monsoon rains in the main eastern rivers of Chenab, Jhelum, Sutlej and Rabi.

Rice Exports at 6.5 Million Tons, Down 2% from Last Year Oct 30, 2014 The UN's

Oct 30, 2014

The UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has forecasted Vietnam's 2014 rice exports to increase to around 6.5 million tons, down about 2% from around 6.65 million tons exported in 2013 due to increased competition from Thailand, India and Pakistan. Vietnam exported around 4.8 million tons of rice in the first nine months of 2014, according to the Vietnam Food Association (VFA).

The FAO forecasts Vietnam's 2014 total paddy production at a record 44.5 million tons (around 27.8 million tons, basis milled), slightly above last year's 43.86 million tons (around 27.4 million tons, basis milled). The increase is attributed to higher than expected output from the 2013-14 winter/spring paddy crop due to favorable weather conditions and adequate supplies of irrigation water during growing season.

Harvesting of the 2014 summer/autumn and 10th-month paddy crop is underway. The FAO forecasts output from these two crops to decline slightly from last year due to a small contraction in planted area following government's efforts to shift paddy land to other crops, including maize

The Chairman of a farmers' association told local sources that they are aiming to create a market locally by rallying farmers. Farmers will bring their paddy output sell it to local and foreign companies. He said every farmer in the country will be encouraged to participate and earn decent income.

will be encouraged to participate and earn decent income. The South- East Asian nation’s rice sector

The South-East Asian nation’s rice sector has been facing severe hardships since China had officially banned rice imports through Myanmar borders in August. Rice exports have plummeted to around 50,000 tons from around 100,000 tons a month. Average wholesale rice prices of rice have fallen about 8% to around 355,710 kyat (around $350) per ton in October 2014 from around 388,450 kyat (around $400) per ton in July 2014, according to FAO.

On the other hand exporters and traders have stopped buying from farmers due to existing stockpiles. Due to this farmers are not able to sell rice from new harvest and are struggling to earn incomes.

However, some farmers expressed concern if they would be able to sell their rice in the backdrop of declining demand from China.

Myanmar has exported around 630,071 tons of rice in the first six months (April - September) of FY 2014-15, more than double over around 300,000 tons exported during the same period last year, according to local sources.

Myanmar exported record 1.33 million tons of rice in 2012-13, but exports dropped to 1 million tons in MY 2013-14. The government is keen on increasing rice exports and accordingly has put rice at the top of its National Export Strategy for 2014-2019 and is planning to explore newer markets for its rice exports.

USDA estimates Myanmar to produce 18.68 million tons of paddy rice (around 11.96 million tons, milled basis) and export around 1.3 million tons of rice in MY 2013-14 (January - December 2014).

Cambodia Rice Production, Finds ADB Study Oct 30, 2014 A study titled 'Improving Rice Production and

A study titled 'Improving Rice Production and Commercialization in Cambodia' by the Asia Development Bank (ADB) has found that Cambodia's rice sector is plagued by lack of efficient irrigation systems, domestic milling facilities and uncertified farm lands.

The government prioritized the development of rice sector since 2010 and significant changes have occurred in the country's rice sector since then and it has been able to increase the proportion of exports over the last couple of years. However, further developments in irrigation systems, domestic milling facilities, levels of commercialization as well as farm size and infrastructure can lead to higher yields and boost rice production in the country, says the study.

The study finds that Cambodia has lowest per hectare yield among the major rice producing countries in Asia. While Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Laos and Thailand have per hectare yields of 6.2 tons, 5.7 tons, 4.3 tons, 4.1 tons and 3.5 tons respectively, Cambodia has only 3.3

In a survey conducted among 750 farm holds in major rice growing areas in the country, most of the farmers said that land access, farming skills and knowledge, lack of water or irrigation, access to high-yielding seeds, lack of capital, price of inorganic fertilizer and pesticides and changing climate patterns are major problems faced by them.

changing climate patterns are major problems faced by them. The ADB has used Farm Investment Climate

The ADB has used Farm Investment Climate method to identify areas which need government intervention as well as what measures can provide higher yields. After considering all survey results, the study notes that rice production in Cambodia can be boosted with increase in investment in agricultural infrastructure, increase in domestic milling capacity and enhancement of storage facilities, increase in investments in irrigation and water management systems, prioritization of land tilting to ensure greater yields and improvement of regulation of input markets.

Strategy Aims to Double Rice Yields by 2039 Oct 30, 2014 The Nepal Agricultural Research Council

The Nepal Agricultural Research Council (NARC) has signed a 5-year (2014-19) Rice Research Strategy with the Philippines- based International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) to strengthen rice research development program in the country as well as to increase rice production, according to a news release on the IRRI website.

The strategy aims to increase per hectare rice yield in the country by at least 3% per annum for the next 25 years. In other words the aim to more than double the current yield of around 3.2 tons per hectare to around 6.7 tons per hectare by 2030. It also highlights the challenges faced by the Nepal rice sector as well as the priority research requirements to boost rice production in the country. The strategy consists of about 14 research projects that are planned for the next five years.

The Member in-charge for Agriculture, Science, and Labor in National Planning Commission was quoted as saying that the collaboration was necessary to encourage Nepal rice breeders to utilize the latest technologies in rice production as well as enhance research facilities in the

Slip after Iraq Asks for Tender Extension Oct 30, 2014 The U.S. cash market was weaker

The U.S. cash market was weaker today after it was reported that the Iraqi Grain Board asked for an extension for their latest tender until Thursday, November 6.

Most analysts see this as a negative sign for the U.S. rice market due to the fact that the last 3 times the IGB canceled their white rice tenders they asked for extensions before doing so.

As of today, offers declined to around $12.00-$12.35 per cwt fob farm (about $265-$272 per ton) while bids were unchanged near $11.75-$12.00 per cwt (about $259-$265 per ton) for November delivery; however. there were still no sellers at this level today.
