    FAO’s forecast of global paddy production over the 2009 season has been lifted by nearly 10 million tonnes to 678 million tonnes, 2 percent below 2008’s crop, but still the second highest production on record. The revision to the global production outlook principally reflects better than previously anticipated results in many Asian countries, where overall paddy production is now forecast at 612 million tonnes, some 12 million tonnes below 2008.

    FAO Rice Market Monitor - December 2014 2014

    With the 2014 season fairly advanced, firmer crop estimates have been issued, which have resulted overall in a slight increase of 250 000 tonnes in the global paddy production forecast. At country level, prospects for the 2014 season output have improved since the October release of this report, particularly for China, Indonesia, the Republic of Korea, Nigeria, and Viet Nam. The higher figures more than compensated for a downgrading in India, hit by the cyclonic storm Hudhud , and in the Democra tic People's Republic of Korea and Thailand, which both endured severe precipitation shortfalls. Disruptions to agricultural activities caused by the Ebola outbreak also worsened prospects for Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. At 744.7 million tonnes (496.6 million tonnes, milled basis), the resulting 2014 global production forecast would be slightly (0.2 percent) lower than the 2013 level, reflecting a 0. 1 percent contraction of both plantings and yields to 162.9 million hectares and 4.57 tonn es per hectare , respectively brought about by unfavourable weather conditions.

    The 2008 paddy s eason is coming to a close with much more buoyant expectations over production thanpreviously anticipated. FAO’s latest prospects point to a level of world paddy production in 2008 of 683 million tonnes (456 million tonnes, milled rice equivalent), 23 million tonne, or 3.5 percent more than in 2007 and the fastest growth since 2005. The increase would be based on a 2.2 percent rise of the area to 159 million hectares, a positive reaction to high prices and to government support.
