S. Korea's Rice Output Forecast To Drop 2.3 PCT In 2006
SEOUL, Aug. 14 Asia Pulse - South Korea's rice production is expected to fall 2.3 per cent from a year earlier to around 4.65 million tons this year, due to decreased land under rice cultivation and bad weather, a state think tank said Saturday.

According to the Korea Rural Economic Institute, the area under rice cultivation is estimated at 970,000 hectares this year, down 0.9 per cent from a year earlier.

Bad weather conditions are likely to contribute to the expected drop in rice output, the institute said. During the annual monsoon season in July, torrential rains pounded the entire country, inundating vast areas of rice paddies.

The think tank also predicted that per-capita rice consumption is expected to continue to decrease this year because of the public's decreased dependency on the country's staple food.

An average Korean is likely to consume 78.7 kilograms of rice this year, compared with 80.7 kilograms a year ago, it said.
