Japan to Have the Biggest Rice Harvest in 3 Years, Nikkei Says
Aug. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Japan will have the biggest rice harvest in three years because of favorable weather conditions this year, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported.
The expanded crop compares with last year's worst harvest in a decade because of a cooler-than-usual summer, the paper said, citing Japan's Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries. Prices of some rice brands have already fallen by as much as a third.
Japan's government may soon lift a ban on rice futures, which have been prohibited for almost 70 years. The current size of the rice market is 10 trillion yen ($90 billion) a figure that will increase once futures trading begins, said Hiroyuki Kikukawa, associate director of research at commodities trading company, Nihon Unicom Corp.
Japanese rely on rice for 23 percent of their calorie intake, compared with 2 percent in the U.S., according to a report by the International Rice Research Institute.
