    Suivi du Marché du Riz - Février 2003 2003

    Selon les dernières estimations de la FAO, la production mondiale de paddy en 2002 serait de 582 millions de tonnes (389 millions de tonnes d'équivalent usiné), soit 2.4 millions de tonnes de moins que les estimations données dans le rapport précédent. Cela étant, la campagne aura été marquée par une contraction de 16 millions de tonnes par rapport à l'année précédente, la production étant tombée à son niveau le plus faible depuis 1998. La campagne de paddy de 2003 étant déjà commenc ée dans l'hémisphère sud, les incidences de l'épisode El Niño influeront sans doute sur les conditions météorologiques dans plusieurs pays producteurs au cours des mois à venir, ce qui aura sans doute des conséquences sur la production.

    The main season paddy crops are nearing maturation in many producing countries in the Northern Hemisphere, some of which have already engaged in harvesting. In the Southern Hemisphere, the 2002 season has drawn to a conclusion and preparations for the 2003 season are underway. FAO’s forecast for paddy production in 2002 now stands at 588 million tonnes (393 million tonnes milled equivalent), over 6 million tonnes less than earlier anticipated and nearly 9 million tonnes below last season’s rev ised outcome.

    • Following less buoyant assessments of crops in Cambodia, China and Laos, FAO has revised downward its estimate of global paddy production in 2004, which now stands at 605 million tonnes. If confirmed at that level, the 2004 season will end with a 4 percent increase in production compared with 2003, with most of the expansion concentrated in China, Indonesia, Japan, Pakistan, the Philippines and Viet Nam. Egypt, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, the United States and the European Union are also estim ated to have harvested larger crops in 2004. By contrast, a number of setbacks, in the form of floods and droughts, impaired the paddy seasons in Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand, which are all set to experience a contraction. Production in 2004 is also anticipated to fall in Central America, a result of disease problems and drought, but also in Ecuador, Guyana and Peru. Although recovering from the extremely poor outcome in 2003, production in Australia remained well below the levels reached before 2002, when lingering drought problems started affecting the crop.
