NASS Prospective Rice Planting Report Shows 7-Percent Drop from 2006
The National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) today estimates the area intended for rice planting in 2007 at 2.64 million acres, a decline of 7 percent from 2006 and a 22 percent decline from 2005. If realized, that would be the lowest planted acreage since 1987, says the Prospective Plantings report issued by NASS, an office of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Statistics Board. “Growers in Arkansas intend to plant 1.22 million acres, down 13 percent from last year,” the report says. “Expected long grain planted acreage, representing 76 percent of the total, is down 8 percent from last year. Intended medium grain planted acreage, representing 21 percent of the total, decreased 3 percent from 2006.” NASS expects the area planted with short grain varieties to be up 8 percent, representing 3 percent of the total. According to the report, “producers of long-grain rice face possible issues with seed availability as the result of actions taken to prevent planting of two prevalent seed varieties which were taken off the market as a result of the possible presence of genetic material not yet approved for commercialization. “Preventative actions taken by USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service and the Arkansas Plant Board regarding the Clearfield 131 variety were announced on March 5. NASS attempted to verify the planting intentions of all respondents that reported long-grain rice acres on the survey prior to March 6.”
