◆2008’s rice planting is expected to be about 6,000 ha. (Australia)

In Australia, 2008’s rice planting area, which is being planted now, is expected to be even lower than the previous year due to the impact of the drought in two consecutive years. According to the report by Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics (ABARE), rice planting area in New South

Wales is predicted to decrease by 63 percent than the previous year to 6,000 ha and harvest is predicted to decrease by 70 percent to about 50,000 tons (husks base).

Last year also, at the beginning, 45,000 ha of planting area and about 50,000 tons of harvest had been predicted, however, part of planting area was abandoned on the way, and finally, harvest resulted in about 15,000 tons (husks base).

Australian Ricegrowers Co-Operative Limited said “Water shortage is worse than expectation. At present, we expect about 60,000 tons of harvest, and of it, a little of short breed is included”.
