Global paddy production in 2005
According to FAO first forecast, global paddy production in 2005 should rise by a modest 1.5 percent to 614 million tonnes, a very tentative figure as many countries in the Northern Hemisphere will not start planting their main crops until mid-year. This rather subdued outlook reflects the possible negative impacts of current drought problems also on the crops that will be planted later in the course of the year. In the Southern Hemisphere, where the 2005 paddy season is already well advanced, production prospects are rather mixed, with Indonesia set to witness a decline of 1 million tonnes from the 2004 record, while a recovery is foreseen in Sri Lanka and Malaysia. The outlook remains downcast in Southern Africa but also in Australia, while Brazil and Argentina are heading towards excellent harvests. Assuming normal weather later in the course of the year, production could recover in those Northern Hemisphere countries that were badly affected by unfavourable climatic conditions in 2004. It is noteworthy, however, that the 2005 season has started against the backdrop of mounting uncertainty, arising from the prevalence of drought conditions in some major rice producing countries but also from rising fuel and fertilizer prices, which may erode the positive effects of attractive rice prices on plantings.
