    FAO first forecast of global paddy production in 2004 has been set at 613 million tonnes, 22 million larger than last season, and the highest level on record.

So far, the outlook for the Southern Hemisphere countries, where harvesting is underway, is generally positive.

    Rice Market Monitor - September 2004 2004

Following those changes, forecast production in 2004 still shows an increase of 4 percent, or 24 million tonnes, compared with 2003.
