In market year 2009/10 (Aug.-July), the U.S. increased the quantity of rice it exported by more than 15%. This followed a 10% decline in U.S. exports a year earlier. This export expansion was largely due to weather problems in several rice-growing nations, and a narrow price difference between U.S. rice and comparable grades from major competitors. This report analyzes the global market conditions that supported increased exports of U.S. rice in 2009/10, incl. global production, domestic use, prices, and trade. Also focuses on the U.S. market, detailing U.S. farmers¿ planting decisions for the 2009/10 crop, movements in the U.S. domestic rice market, and U.S. export competitiveness. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.
