Vietnam 2004 rice production at record level
According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD), 2004 Winter-Spring (W-S) rice production totaled 15,764 thousand metric tons (tmt), up 70 tmt from last year due to better yields.
Farmers in the Mekong River Delta (MRD) are currently planting the 2004/05 W-S rice crop, planned at 1,450 thousand hectares (tha).

Post revises upwards the 2004 S-A rice production to 9,676 tmt, up from the previous estimate of 8,791 tmt, due to larger rice growing areas and higher crop yields.

The S-A area was expanded mainly in the MRD. In the 2004 S-A rice crop, farmers in the MRD planted 1,950 tha, higher by 100 tha than the proposed area due to good domestic paddy prices which encouraged farmers to plant more. The S-A rice crop yield was also improved because of higher input use.

High quality rice area is mainly in the MRD. Total area of high quality rice is estimated at 150 tha, with a production targeted at 600-700 tmt of paddy. An Giang province has the largest high quality rice area (about 80,000 ha).

The MARD encourages farmers to increase growing area of high quality rice to earn higher prices.
