Australia Rice Update
Rice area in 2006/07 is forecast at 60,000 hectares, up 10,000 hectares from the previous year and in line with the current ABARE forecast. Despite this increase, rice area remains well below the historical average.

Severe drought conditions that sharply reduced the last three rice crops continues to constrain the availability of water for rice production. The area dedicated to rice production in 2006/07 will likely be constrained by water storage levels that have not yet fully recharged. According to government sources, key irrigation schemes have allowed producers to bring forward future entitlements of water for rice during the recent drought. These entitlements are being repaid over 2005/06 and 2006/07, further constraining the recovery in planted area.

Estimated area for rice in 2005/06 is 50,000 hectares, down from the 65,000 hectares for the previous year and in line with current ABARE figures. This is the lowest rice area since 1972/73. Depleted irrigation water reserves due to the severe drought greatly reduced the area dedicated to rice production.
