Thai rice prices softer
Export prices for most grades of rice softened slightly due mainly to more available domestic supply. Trade sources reported that rice millers who participated in the government intervention programs were assigned to mill the paddy in the stocks. This lead to more available supply of broken rice (by-products) in the market. As a result, white rice prices, particularly for inferior grades, were expected to weaken. However, the prices of superior rice will likely remain strong, as the government continued to stockpile the rice in the government warehouses. As of Feb. 20, 2005, the government bought 3.8 million tons of paddy, of which 2.1 million tons were white rice paddy. Trade sources expected more market potentials for inferior grade white rice in light of anticipated widening gap between inferior and superior rice prices.
