Egypt Rice Production and Exports
The total rice area for 2007 is estimated at 670,000 HA, about the same as in 2006. However, following a sharp decrease in cotton prices in 2007/08, some farmers are expected to replace cotton with rice. Total rough rice production in 2007 is estimated at about 6.7 million tons. For 2008, total rough rice production is expected to increase slightly.

Egypt is a net rice exporter. It imports a very small quantity of high quality name-brand packaged rice to sell in up-scale supermarkets. Rice exports are estimated at 1,231,000 tons during 2006/07. However, for 2007/08, rice exports are expected to decrease to 900,000 tons. This expected decrease in rice exports is mainly due to the recent decision by the Rice Exporter’s Association members to stop exporting rice indefinitely. This decision was taken after the consumer price of rice topped 4 Egyptian pounds/Kg, which is equivalent to about $730/ton, and about 30 percent higher than traditional levels. This increase reflects the high prices for rough rice, which are currently about $325/ton, compared to about $220/ton last year
