U.S. ending stocks for rice down 28%, farm prices highest since 1997/98
The first projection for the 2006/07 U.S. rough rice crop is 205 million hundredweight (cwt), an 8-percent decline from a year earlier. The smaller crop is the result of a 12-percent decline in area more than offsetting a higher yield. Total U.S. supplies are projected at 257.3 million cwt (rough rice basis), down 7 percent from a year earlier. At 34.3 million cwt, beginning stocks are 9 percent below a year earlier. Imports are projected at a record 18 million cwt, up almost 13 percent from 2005/06.
Total use of U.S. rice in 2006/07 is projected at 232.7 million cwt, 4 percent below a year earlier.
Exports are projected at 103 million (rough equivalent of fully milled, brown, and rough rice), a decrease of 11 percent. Both long and medium/short grain exports are projected to decline in 2006/07. Total domestic use (including the residual, or unreported losses in handling, processing, and marketing, plus any statistical errors) is projected at a record 129.7 million cwt. U.S. ending stocks of all rice for 2006/07 are projected at 24.6 million cwt, down 28 percent from a year earlier. The 2006/07 U.S. season-average farm price is projected at $9.00-$9.50 per cwt, up from $7.60-$7.80 a year earlier and highest since 1997/98. Tighter U.S. supplies and slightly higher global trading prices are behind expectations of U.S. stronger prices.
