Egyptian rice exports
Rice is a major summer crop in Egypt, occupying 10 percent of Egypt’s total crop area. All of the rice crop is irrigated. Rice requires a special irrigation regime and its cultivation is largely restricted to the northern part of the Delta. It is often planted on reclaimed land where the soil is fairly saline and has varying degrees of productivity. A limited amount of rice is also grown in the middle Delta and in Upper Egypt. With irrigation water provided free of charge and a much higher profitability of rice cultivation compared to other traditional summer crops (i.e. corn and cotton), farmers normally exceed the area targeted by the government for rice cultivation, despite the prospect of fines of LE 600/ feddan for those who violate their targeted areas. The government rarely imposes this fine on farmers.

The total rice area for the CY 2004 is estimated at 635,000 HA, nearly one percent higher than CY 2003. However, following a sharp decrease in cotton prices in MY 2004/05, a further increase in rice acreage is expected for CY 2005. Some farmers are expected to replace cotton with rice production. Total rough rice production in CY 2004 is estimated at about 6 MMT. For CY 2005, total rough rice production is expected to increase to 6.15 MMT.

Egyptian rice export prices are becoming less competitive in the international market.Egyptian pound and the U.S. dollar of about 9 percent.
