    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.

    FAO’s latest forecast for global paddy output in 1998 is put at 570 million tonnes, 9 million tonnes, or slightly less than two percent lower than the previous year's revised record level. This is a tentative forecast since the bulk of this season's rice crop is being planted in Asia as the monsoon rains set in. In other countries in the Northern Hemisphere, planting has been completed and growing conditions vary from average to good while in the Southern Hemisphere and around the equatorial belt, harvesting of the 1998 main season paddy crops is complete.

    The bulk of this season's rice crop is still to be planted in most of Asia, pending the arrival of monsoon rains, although planting of paddy for the 1999 season is underway in some of the Northern Hemisphere countries. In the Southern Hemisphere and around the equatorial belt, the 1999 main paddy crop season is nearing completion. Production there is expected to rebound as a result of a ea expansion and improved growing conditions compared to theprevious season. FAO's forecast for global paddy output in 1999 is for an increase of 1 to 2 percent over last year’s level. This forecast is still tentative and hinges on the timing, extent and distribution of the Asian monsoon.
