FAO report projects slight increase in global rice production
A U.N. Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) report issued today projects a slight decline in global cereal production, but a slight increase in global rice production. The report, Crop Prospects and Food Situation, estimates global milled-rice production at 421.1 million tons for 2005 and forecasts productio425 million tons for 2006.
The FAO report projects a paddy rice production increase in Asia to 577.2 million tons in 2006 from 551.7 million tons in 2004, and an increase in Africa to 21.5 million tons in 2006 from 19.4 million tons in 2004.
According to the report, Latin American and Caribbean production grew from 25.7 million tons in 2004 to an estimated 26.6 million tons in 2005 and will fall to 25 million tons in 2006. Paddy production in North America, Europe and Oceania will continue to decline, to 9.3 million tons in 2006 from 10.5 million tons in 2004, the FAO says.
Global rice production will remain higher than utilization, the report says, but food aid requirements remain unmet. “Food assistance is still needed for large numbers of the population in drought-affected pastoral areas of [Africa], as well as for victims of past and renewed civil conflicts,” it says.
