Puerto Rico began importing medium-grain rice from Egypt and again from China
In some years, Puerto Rico—the largest U.S. territory—has imported medium-grain rice instead of purchasing the rice from U.S. suppliers, mainly in California. (Puerto Rico is included in the domestic and residual component of the U.S. supply and use tables.) Relative prices, supply, freight rates, and institutional relationships determine whether purchasers in Puerto Rico buy rice from the United States or abroad. In 2001/02, Puerto Rico began importing medium-grain rice from Australia. In 2002/03, China also sold medium-grain rice to Puerto Rico. In 2003/04, only China had the medium-grain rice market, as Australia’s supplies were extremely tight. There were no significant international sales of medium-grain rice to Puerto Rico in 2004/05, primarily due to tight supplies in both exporting countries and a record California harvest. In early 2006, Puerto Rico began importing medium-grain rice from Egypt and again from China because California prices were up sharply due to a weak harvest in 2005/06.
