    Rice Market Monitor - May 2004 2004
    Also available in:

    FAO forecast of global paddy production in 2004 has been raised marginally to 613 million tonnes, which would be 21 million tonnes more than last season and the highest level on record. However, at this period of the year, the forecast is still highly tentative, since the season final outcome will be largely influenced by the timing, extent and distribution of the rainfall during the Asian monsoon, just starting.

    The 1999 paddy season is progressing well in the Northern Hemisphere countries under generally favourable conditions, while in the Southern Hemisphere and around the equatorial belt, harvesting of the 1999 main paddy crop season is virtually done. Production in several countries is expected to rebound from last season’s depressed level due to a combination of larger plantings and higher yields. A number of countries are anticipating record production. Based on crop estimates in the Southern Hemisphere and the crop progress reports in several countries in the Northern Hemisphere, FAO is tentatively forecasting global paddy output in 1999 to reach an all time high of 582 million tonnes, barring any unforeseen natural calamities.

    Rice Market Monitor - September 2004 2004
    Also available in:

    FAO forecast of global paddy production in 2004 has been lowered to 608 million tonnes, because of adverse weather conditions in several northern hemisphere countries. Estimated world production in the previous 2003 season was also revised downward, as several countries released new, less buoyant estimates of their 2003 crops. Following those changes, forecast production in 2004 still shows an increase of 4 percent, or 24 million tonnes, compared with 2003.
