Record CA Crop
CA Farm Bureau
For 2004, CASS has estimated that the state's growers will produce 47.4 million cwt. of rice, up from 38.6 million cwt. in 2003. CASS also predicts that California farmers will harvest 605,000 acres of rice this season, up from 507,000 acres harvested last year.
Some growers believe the acreage will be even higher.
"This is by far and away the largest crop that California's ever seen—probably close to 620,000 acres," said Colusa County rice grower Doug McGeoghegan.
"With the expectation of really good rice prices, a lot of people put rice on ground that may not have seen it in many, many years," McGeoghegan added.
Farmers were blessed with favorable growing conditions throughout the growing season, resulting in high grain yields.
CASS estimates the average statewide yield will be 7,900 pounds (79 sacks) per acre, up from 7,620 pounds per acre last year.
Others believe that the average will be much higher.
"I think our statewide average yield is going to be in the upper 80s," said rice broker Pat Daddow, president of California Rice Exchange in Yuba City. He said some growers have reported yields as high as 97 sacks per acre.
A big 2004 rice crop combined with a larger-than-expected carryover from 2003, however, has led to a decrease in rice prices.
