Russia threatens to ban Indian rice imports
Russia may ban imports of rice from India from May 1 if shipments are not accompanied by certificates stating which pesticides have been used to treat it, the animal and plant health watchdog said on Tuesday.

Rosselkhoznadzor said in a statement that Russian inspectors had discovered Indian farmers did not supply processing plants with information on pesticides used during rice growing, which it said may present a danger to consumers' health.

India is one of the main suppliers of rice to Russia.

Moscow used to import 400,000-500,000 tonnes of rice per year intil it imposed a tariff of 70 euros ($92.19) per tonne in April 2005. Exports shrank to 300,000-350,000 tonnes after that, analysts have said.

At the beginning of December, Russia stopped all rice imports on health grounds but promised to restart them later under stricter control via a reduced number of ports.

Earlier this month the government set a seasonal import tariff of 120 euros from March 13 to May 31 and from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31 to protect domestic producers

Russia harvested an all-time high rice crop of 685,000 tonnes in 2006, compared with 575,000 tonnes in 2005. Of this top rice grower Razgulay produced 375,000 tonnes, up from 133,000 tonnes in 2005
