Rice Production Cost Declines Last Year In S. Korea
South Korea's rice production cost dropped 0.8 per cent year-on-year to 587,748 won (US$573) per 998.25 square meters last year, due mainly to a decrease in the cost of labor and pesticides, the state statistics office said Monday.
Last year's overall good weather helped bring down the cost of labor, equipment, fertilizer and pesticide, and as a result farmers' net income rose more than 30 per cent, according to the National Statistical Office (NSO).
Farmers spent an average 91,189 won to produce each 80-kilogram bag of rice, which was down 13.2 per cent from 2003, the office explained.
"The cost of production decreases in proportion with younger age and larger farm size," an NSO official said.
"To prepare for the wider agricultural market opening, the government will continue to push for economy of scale and retirement of elderly farmers."
