Japanese production higher in 2005
While harvesting of the 2005 rice crop in Japan is about to be completed, the Government released in September a forecast for production of 9.11 million tonnes on an husked rice basis, equivalent to about 11.4 million tonnes of paddy rice, substantially higher than the original 2005 production target of 8.51 million tonnes (10.6 million tonnes, paddy basis) and 4.6 percent more than last season. The upward revision reflects the results of the August survey, which rated the crop as “above normal", with a national index of 102 (where 100 indicates a normal year rating). The growth would be on account of improved yields, now expected to average close to 7 tonnes of paddy per hectare. According to the Ministry of Agriculture, output would exceed consumption by around 560 000 tonnes in paddy terms. As for 2006, the government is considering lowering the production target for the season to less than 8.44 million tonnes, husked basis (equivalent to some 10.55 million tonnes of paddy).
