Decline in U.S. rough rice production
The 2006/07 U.S. rough rice production forecast was lowered 1 million hundredweight (cwt) to 192.3 million, a decline of 14 percent from a year earlier and the second consecutive year of a smaller U.S. rice crop. The crop forecast was lowered this month due to a reduced yield. Both the long grain and combined medium/short grain crop forecasts were lowered this month.
The average yield is forecast at 6,811 pounds per acre, a drop of 35 pounds from last month’s forecast but 175 pounds above a year earlier. The yield is the second highest on record. Yields were lowered this month for California, Missouri, and Texas. In contrast, the Arkansas yield was raised slightly. Yields are projected to be higher than a year earlier in every reported State except Louisiana, where yields are projected to be down 3 percent.

Total plantings remain estimated at 2.84 million acres, 16 percent below a year earlier and the lowest since 1996/97. Area is estimated lower in 2006/07 in all reported States except Missouri and California, with Arkansas and Louisiana accounting for more than three-fourths of the 543,000-acre decline in U.S.
plantings. Missouri’s plantings are unchanged from the year-earlier record. An extremely wet and cool spring prevented California growers from expanding rice acreage despite high prices for medium and short grain rice. High fuel and fertilizer prices, difficulty in acquiring loans, and weather problems in some areas—primarily Arkansas, Louisiana, and California—were responsible for the decline in U.S. rice acreage in 2006/07.
