    FAO Rice Market Monitor, July 1998 1998

    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.

    FAO’s latest forecast for global paddy output in 1998 is 561 million tonnes, about 17 million tonnes, or about 3 percent lower than the previous year's revised record level. The reduction is largely attributed to flood-related problems in a number of major rice producing countries in Asia where preliminary indications suggest a high degree of damage in some countries. However, the final outcome will greatly depend on the impact of floods in the affected countries.

    FAO’s forecast for global paddy output in 1998 has been revised downwards by 4 million tonnes to 557 million tonnes. This would be about 20 million tonnes, or approximately 3.5 percent lower than the previous year's revised record level. The downward adjustment is based on the preliminary assessment of the damage caused by floods in a number of rice producing Asian countries in the northern hemisphere.
