Thai Export prices were higher
Market Tone

Export prices for most grades of rice increased by U.S.$ 1-2/MT in response to the surge in domestic prices. White rice domestic prices continued to increase due to tighter white paddy rice supplies, following the current aggressive government intervention program. The millers who participated in the second-crop intervention program reportedly have more space to stockpile second-crop white paddy rice because they have recently been allowed to mill paddy stocks (2005/06 main crop) for delivery to government warehouses. In addition, the current second-crop paddy has a higher percentage of chalky kernels than normal due to unfavorable weather conditions, leading to additional cost to exporters, as chalky kernel content cannot exceed 6 percent (Thai Rice Export Standard). Meanwhile, foreign demand remained quiet due to current high Thai rice prices. Also, there is a rumor that Iranian buyers are renegotiating with Thai exporters to buy 100B% B grade white rice after they failed to source rice from Vietnam. Trade sources also reported that the Thai exporters are quoting prices of U.S.$ 330/MT for 100% B grade white rice to Iranian buyers, as compared to the U.S.$ 310-320/MT quotations on the previous negotiation three weeks ago.
