S. Korea's rice output expected to fall to 27-year low
SEOUL, Nov. 14 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's rice production for this year is expected to fall to its lowest level in 27 years owing to unfavorable weather conditions, a state-run agency said Wednesday.

The National Agricultural Products Quality Management Service (NAQS) said surveys conducted on 4,500 paddies throughout the country showed that this year's rice harvest could reach 4.41 million tons.

The harvest would be 5.8 percent smaller than the 4.68 million tons harvested last year, the agency under the Agriculture Ministry said.

The total is lower than the average annual yield tallied for the last five years that stands at 4.59 million tons, NAQS said.

Frequent rains and cloudy weather during the fall months have had a detrimental affect on overall yield according to the agency.

It said such developments caused only 466 kilograms of rice to be harvested from 1,000 square meters of land, down from 993 kilograms in 2006.

The record low was recorded in 1980 when 3.55 million tons of rice were produced.
