Macedonian paddy prices finally announced
Macedonian government delay with the announcement of the guaranteed paddy prices this year. Reason was high percentage of moisture in the paddy. Farmers are not using drying facilities. Drying of the paddy depends on the weather conditions. Thus makes paddy to keep for long time 17-18% of moisture.
This made the farmers unsatisfactory and exporters a bit angry as they lost part of the contracted quantities.
Macedonian farmers harvested this year around 15`000 mt paddy basis. 80 percent of the crop is St. Andrea, Italian origin seed, grown lately in Macedonia as well.
20 percent of the crop is going on Monticelli, Roka and Selenio type of rice.
Quantity wise this year crop is smaller then last year, due to the water problems, yet Farmers are satisfied with the field yield and milling yields.
Last crop, mostly Monticelli type of rice, was effected by “fungus” desist giving high percentage of empty grains. Compared to last year, this year milling yield is 52 – 54%, with excellent quality.
