US Rice Harvest Report
ERS, August 13, 2004
The 2004 rice harvest has only recently started on the Gulf Coast. For the week ending August 8, about 6 percent of the total crop had been harvested, 2 percentage points behind a year earlier and below the 5-year average of 9 percent. About 38 percent of Louisiana’s crop was harvested by August 8, down from 41 percent a year earlier and a 5-year average of 44 percent. In Texas, just 12 percent of the crop had been harvested by August 8, down from 21 percent a year earlier and well below the 5-year average of 32 percent. Severe rains early in the summer delayed crop progress in both Gulf Coast rice growing States. Harvest has not yet begun in other States.

About 74 percent of the U.S. crop had headed by August 8, down 2 percentage points from a year earlier but ahead of the 5-year U.S. average of 69 percent. Heading was nearly complete in Texas and Louisiana, slightly behind both last year and the 5-year average for both States. Nearly 85 percent of the Mississippi rice crop had headed by August 8, about 5 percentage points behind a year earlier but up 5 percentage points from the State’s average. Three-fourths of the Arkansas crop was reported headed by August 8, nearly unchanged from a year earlier and the State’s 5-year average. In Missouri, 63 percent of the crop was reported headed by August 8, virtually even with a year earlier but well ahead of the 5-year average of 51 percent. Finally, half of the California crop was reported headed by August 8, almost double the share reported a year earlier and the State’s 5-year average.
California experienced severe weather problems in 2003.
For the week ending August 8, about 69 percent of the total U.S. crop was rated in good or excellent condition, virtually unchanged from a week earlier and a year earlier. California, Missouri, and Arkansas reported higher crop condition ratings than a year earlier. These States had weather-related difficulties in 2003. About 89 percent of Missouri’s 2004 rice crop was rated in good or excellent condition for the week ending August 8, well above 73 percent a year earlier. In Arkansas, 77 percent of the crop was rated in good or excellent condition, up 7 percentage points from a year earlier. About 55 percent of the California crop was rated in good or excellent condition, up from 25 percent a year earlier. About 89 percent of Mississippi’s rice crop was reported in good or excellent condition, unchanged from a year earlier.
Crop conditions were below a year earlier in Louisiana and Texas. Just 52 percent of the Louisiana crop was rated in good or excellent condition for the week of August 8, well below 80 percent reported a year earlier. In addition, 8 percent of the Louisiana crop was rated in poor condition. In Texas, 64 percent of the crop was rated in good or excellent condition, down from 85 percent a year earlier. About 3 percent of the Texas crop was rated in poor condition. In both States, excessive rain and severe winds earlier in the growing season account for this year’s lower crop condition ratings. About 89 percent of Mississippi’s rice crop was reported in good or excellent condition, unchanged from a year earlier.
