India rice production is forecast to decline significantly
MY 2004/05 (Oct-Sep) rice production is currently forecast at 83 million tons (71 million tons in the fall harvested kharif season and 12 million tons in the spring harvested rabi season), which although higher than Post’s August forecast of 80 million tons, is 4 million tons below the GOI’s revised 2003/04 estimate of 87 million tons. Lower production is largely attributed to a decline in planted area in north and east India, combined with a marginal decline in yields due to unfavorable weather conditions characterized by a prolonged dry period in some states and floods in others. The return of normal rainfall distribution in some growing regions since the beginning of August helped to mitigate further yield losses. The state of Uttar Pradesh is likely to account for a major share of the decline in the kharif rice production, followed by Bihar, Assam, West Bengal, and Orissa. Rice production in southern India is estimated to be more or less the same as last year or marginally lower. Rice production in the major surplus state of Punjab is also estimated to be somewhat lower than last year’s record production due to the dry spell. The government has urged states to offset the decline in kharif grain production by increased production in the rabi season. This, however, seems unlikely, in the case of rice due to limited irrigation availability and likely diversification to less irrigation-intensive crops like wheat, oilseeds, and corn.
