U.S. rice acres expected to drop below 3 million
U.S rice acres could drop 13 percent to 17 percent in 2006, according to economists in the six major rice-producing states. If the forecasts hold true, U.S. rice acres will slip below 3 million acres in 2006, to somewhere between 2.7 million acres and 2.9 million acres.

The economists stressed that the acreage estimates were very preliminary and could move higher with improvement in rice prices or lower fuel and fertilizer costs. They gave their reports during the USA Rice Outlook Conference in Austin, Texas.

Texas rice acres are expected to decline to 150,000 acres to 170,000 acres, a 16 percent to 25 percent decrease from 2005; Missouri acres are expected to drop to 180,000 acres to 185,000 acres, a decline of 12 percent to 14 percent; Mississippi acres could decline to 200,000 acres to 240,000 acres, a decline of 10 percent to 30 percent; Louisiana acres could decline to 341,000 acres to 394,000 acres, a drop of 25 percent to 35 percent; California acreage could increase to 525,000 acres to 550,000 acres, a rise of 3 percent to 8 percent; and Arkansas could drop to 1.385 million acres, a decline of 15 percent.
