California Rice Crop
Progress of California Rice Crop Remains Well Behind Last Year and The State’s 5-Year Average

Nearly 2 months of heavy rain and cool temperatures early this spring delayed field work and plantings of the 2006 California crop by at least 3 weeks, sharply slowing the progress of the California crop. By May 14, just 12 percent of the crop had been planted, well behind the California 5-year average of 52 percent. Despite a rapid pace of planting in the second half of May, just 64 percent of the California crop was estimated planted by May 28, well behind the 2001-2005 California average of 87 percent. Because of the smaller growing period this year, many California producers planted shorter-maturing varieties. A combination of reduced field preparations, late planting, and sowing of shorter-maturing varieties typically results in below-trend field yields. In contrast to California, by early June progress of the 2006 crop was ahead of the 2001-2005 average across most of the South.
