COMPETITION in rice prices in the country now turns real, as the decrease in rice prices now allows consumers to buy the rice of their choice.
This came, following the introduction of various types of rice since last year.

Over the past couple of years, consumers have no other options to choose which rice to buy as there are only a few sold with demanding prices.

Rice has been one of the staple food in the country, to-date.

Now that the different rices have been introduced in the domestic market, most people in the working class can now go for the best price.

SolRice has dropped the price of its rice products as part of their February and March special.

The drop in the prices of the 20 kilograms and 10 kilograms of its rice products has been welcomed by many consumers.

This is because; the Solrais brand is becoming a household name in the country.

Similar price margins have also been placed on other rice products that were introduced into the country lately.

One of the famous brand rice is also the Calrose rice.

“The drop in rice prices has been my dream for a very long time.

“Now, one can easily tell that this is the era of real competition when it comes to buying rice products in the country,” one Honiara resident, commented.

State Owned Entity (SOE), the Solomon Islands Ports Authority (SIPA) in 2015 have seen the loophole in the competition by trying to import and selling the SIPA rice, under the leadership of Singaporean Colin Yow.

The move however ended up going nowhere, as it was being deemed illegal under the SIPA and SOE Act

Higher yields to spur grain output to new highs this year

After two drought years, foodgrain production for the current year (2016-17) is set for a new high, surpassing the previous record of 2013-14, aided by a near-normal monsoon across most parts of the country.
Government officials say that appropriate policy interventions and programmes by the Government also played a role in boosting output.
According to the recently released second advance estimates by the Agriculture Ministry, output across all categories is seen rising despite a dip in acreage in some cases.
In the case of rice, production is set to rise a new high of 108.86 mt on higher yields. This represents an increase of 2 per cent over 106.65 mt harvested in 2013-14, and is marginally higher than the targeted 108.5 mt for the current year.
In the case of wheat, production for the current year is expected to be ahead of the target of 96.5 mt and is likely to touch a new high of 96.64 mt despite a marginal drop in acreage over 2013-14. So is the case with coarse cereals and oilseeds, where higher yields are seen boosting output despite a drop in acreage.
However, in the case of pulses, the rise in output was largely driven by a surge in the area under legume crops this year. Production of pulses including tur and gram is seen touching a new record this year.
Officials said special focus was given for pulses in which a five-year roadmap, starting from 2016-17, was drawn up targeting a production of 24 mt by the end of 2020-21. Though the target for the current year was 21.25 mt, output is set to reach 22.14 mt
Further, initiatives to promote cultivation of tur on farm bunds, creation of seed hubs to ensure adequate supply, and distribution of mini seed kits to popularise new varieties have also helped increase output this year.


Three months after it challenged China’s farm subsidies, the U.S. filed a new case at the World Trade Organization, charging that China has suppressed imports of U.S. corn, wheat, and rice. The “opaque and unpredictable management” of the tariff-rate quota (TRQ) system denied U.S. farmers $3.5 billion in sales in 2015, according to USDA.
TRQs allow a specified amount of merchandise to enter a country at reduced tariff rates during a window of time. The U.S. trade representative’s (USTR) office says China violated its WTO commitments by leaving unclear the application criteria for TRQ imports, by failing to provide notice of the tonnage eligible for TRQ treatment, by changing TRQ volumes, and by not explaining how it runs the program.
As part of entering WTO, China agreed to permit imports of 7.2 million tonnes of corn, 9.6 million tonnes of wheat, and 5.3 million tonnes of wheat at lower tariff rates. “Despite lower global prices that favor the importation of grains into China, the TRQs for each commodity persistently do not fill,” says the USTR.
WTO cases typically take 18 to 24 months to complete, including an appeal of a dispute panel decision. In the WTO case files in mid-September, the U.S. said China provided nearly $100 billion in excess support for corn, wheat, and rice in 2015 by setting domestic grain prices above world market prices. China has huge stockpiles of corn, wheat, and cotton

Rice growers step up productions as local demand grows

Findings showed that the rising volume of local rice production is due to increased demand for the commodity by Nigerians
- The Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbeh, said that Nigeria could end rice importation in the next one year thereby drastically reducing its annual food importation bill which currently stands at between $2 and $3 billion
- Olam’s Managing Director for Africa and Middle East, Venkataramani Srivathsan, said: "3,000 hectares of land was already under cultivation on the 6,000 hectares of mechanised paddy farm where the rice mill is located
Nigeria is the largest producer of rice in West Africa, but also the second largest importer of rice in the world.
Rice growers step up productions as local demand grows
Today, Nigerians are said to be consuming about 6.5 tonnes of rice annually with less than half of that figure produced locally and the deficit arising from importation of rice cost Nigeria over two billion dollars per annum.
This narrative is changing as small holder farmers and commercial farmers are making large investment in rice productions.
Vanguard reports that the little success recorded so far as seen in the number of local rice available during the last festive period in the country testify to efforts of the Federal Government, through the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), as well as the state governments, who are also encouraging local production in the face of dwindling oil revenue.
Last December, Lagos state in collaboration with Kebbi state were the cynosure of all as they came up with the LAKE rice, which was an instant hit, as Lagosians trooped out to pay for the rice produced in Kebbi state.
Indeed, lots of corporate bodies, especially banks, gave out Made-in-Nigeria Olam rice as gifts instead of the usual imported varieties. Findings show that the rising volume of local rice production is due to increased demand for the commodity by Nigerians.
The demand is said to be fuelled by growing awareness among Nigerians that the locally-produced rice is much more nutritious than the imported variety especially given that many of the country’s leading rice millers now process Paddy rice as proficiently as their foreign counterparts.
In fact, during a visit to a rice farm in the eastern part of the country recently, the Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbeh, predicted that Nigeria could end rice importation in the next one year thereby drastically reducing its annual food importation bill which currently stands at between $2 and $3 billion.
However, analysts point out that the surge in Nigeria’s local rice production has been primarily due to the massive investment in the production of the staple food by leading Agribusiness firm, Olam Nigeria Limited.
Although there are several companies now involved in rice production in the country, Bua Group through its subsidiary, Bua rice, just revealed plans to increase its current processing capacity, just as Dangote rice also plans to produce one million tonnes of high quality parboiled rice within the next three years.
All these efforts are coming on the heels of the pioneering role of Olam in commercial rice production in the country that has helped in the surge of local production but also helped boost small holder farmer production as well.
In 2013, former President Goodluck Jonathan commissioned Olam’s multi-million dollar integrated rice mill in Nasarawa state, fitted with the capacity to produce 65,000 metric tonnes of milled rice per annum.
Speaking during the commissioning of the facility, Olam’s Managing Director for Africa and Middle East, Venkataramani Srivathsan, said: "3,000 hectares of land was already under cultivation on the 6,000 hectares of mechanised paddy farm where the rice mill is located. Integrated farm and milling facility Srivathsan said Olam planned to increase acreage in Nasarawa to 10,000 hectares.“This will bring Olam’s total investment in the integrated farm and milling facility to over $111 million.”
Korea Policy to Decrease Rice Plantings and Dispose of Excess Stocks 

SEOUL, KOREA -- Due to higher than normal yield for the past few years and the resulting oversupply and price pressure, the Korean government is attempting to reach a balance between rice supply and demand by 2018.  The plan entails seeking a gradual reduction in harvested area and promoting expanded rice consumption. 

The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (MAFRA) recently released its plan to reduce arable land used for rice cultivation to 711,000 hectares by 2018, a 4.7 percent reduction from the earlier established target of 746,000 hectares. 

The government also plans to introduce the Production Adjustment Program which will encourage rice farmers to plant other crops in their rice land (up to 18,000 hectares nationally in 2017).  A recent survey by the Korea Rural Economic Institute (KREI) indicated that rice farmers intend to plant 762,000 hectares in 2017, a decrease of 2.1 percent from the previous year. 

Exacerbating the issue, as in many Asian countries, per capita consumption of table rice here continues to decline as diets are diversified and westernized.  Per capita table rice consumption has declined by about 2.75 pounds per year in the last five years and projected consumption this year stands at 132 pounds per person.

In a further step to reduce the oversupply situation, the government will expand rice availability for use in animal feed to 470,000 MT (milled basis) in 2017.  This compares to just 91,000 MT in 2016 and practically none in years prior to 2016.  To assure usage for feed, the rice is sold at a price that is comparable to 88 percent of the value of corn imported in 2016.

"Korea agreed to import a minimum of 408,700 MT of rice per year at a duty level of 5 percent when it joined the World Trade Organization," said USA Rice Vice President International Hugh Maginnis.  "Prior to tariffication in January 2015, a number of countries, including the United States, had a country specific quota.  Currently, Korea is still bound to import that quantity on a global basis without regard to origin.  

"It is extremely important that the U.S. remains engaged with the Korean government on this," said Maginnis.  "USA Rice will continue to promote U.S. rice to assure that we maintain a significant share of this market, given that Korea is currently the seventh largest export destination for U.S. rice."  

Under the 2016 MFN TRQ, the U.S. contracted to export 165,900 MT of rice to Korea (40,000 MT for table use) setting a market share record of 40.6 percent.

Students Create 'Nice Rice' Product During Hampton Creek Fellowship

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Students from different disciplines in the Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences at the University of Arkansas teamed together to create a low-cost, nutritious food product for a San Francisco-based food startup, Hampton Creek, during an intensive, fully immersive fellowship program with the company.
Stanley Chukwuanu in hospitality innovation, Madeline Hopson in agricultural business and Ashton Julian in human nutrition along with English major John Harpool completed several workshops with Hampton Creek food teams then developed their product during the three-day program in January.
“This was a great opportunity to learn about the food industry,” said Hopson. “We learned about the business side, not only from their CEO Josh Tetrick, but the research and development team, the chefs, marketing team and their plant researcher. We saw how their company works from start to finish and how important each person is in producing their products. Each employee was inspiring and encouraging.”
The group’s assignment was to create a nutritious food product for a target community, develop a business model for selling the product at a minimum of a small profit through specific retailers and form a strategy to ensure the product reaches communities needing it most.
“We gave the Fellows an impossibly complex challenge that the best and brightest in the world have not yet solved,” said Taylor Quinn, emerging markets director for Hampton Creek. “In 2.5 days they banded together and designed a multi-faceted business targeting America’s ‘food deserts’ (geographic areas where affordable, nutritious food is not readily available). It was incredibly impressive work.”
The group focused on affordability while understanding many consumers do not eat the healthiest foods, which leads to malnourishment and obesity.
The team created a “Nice Rice” product ready to eat in 90 seconds and providing 25 percent of daily recommended vitamins and minerals. Rice was chosen as the primary ingredient to take advantage of Arkansas’ nation-leading rice production.
“I grew up on a rice farm and wanted to incorporate rice,” said Hopson, who is from Stuttgart. “We realized we could create a delicious and nutritious rice blend, but once you add ingredients, some families with children may stay away if they don’t like everything. ‘Nice Rice’ allows families to get many nutrients they need from a rice blend. It has everything you need to stay healthy as well as a good flavor. Families will enjoy it without realizing they are eating healthy.”
“Nice Rice” is similar to Rice-a-Roni products, nutritionally fortified and containing dehydrated vegetables.
The group’s plan includes distributing “Nice Rice” to regional grocery stores throughout the state, making a nutritious, low-cost food item available through Bill’s Cash Saver (five locations), Edwards Food Giant (seven locations) and Hay’s (12 locations) with eventual expansion through Dollar General.
“The insights generated by the Fellows created real value at Hampton Creek, insights that are helping the company’s work in making healthy food accessible to all,” said Quinn. “On Day 1, the Fellows were understandably reserved. By Day 3, they were challenging our CEO and pushing back on flavor decisions with our Michelin-star chefs. These Fellows came into their own, and I can’t wait to follow what they do in coming years.”
“In just a few days, the passion and enthusiasm of the U of A Fellows could be felt as they immersed themselves in their project,” said Hampton Creek chef Kaimana Chee. “From start to finish, they demonstrated a synergetic approach to solving a real food issue plaguing food deserts around the globe. The experience seemed to transform the Fellows in ways that transcend their individual disciplines.”
Team members were selected after applying for the fellowship. The U of A was invited to participate based on its relationship with Chartwells, which is the education component of Compass Group, the largest foodservice company in the world. Hampton Creek is a partner with Compass Group, providing Just Mayo, Just Dressings and Just Cookies at schools, corporate cafeterias, hospitals and other Compass locations across the country.
Andrew Lipson, U of A resident district manager for Chartwells, and Bari Marchfeld, Chartwells director of student success, assisted in selecting students for the Fellowship.
“Hampton Creek and Chartwells provided an amazing experience I’ll never forget,” said Hopson. “I made several connections, and my team prepared a presentation that helped with our public speaking, organization and working with others, which will be helpful in our future careers.”

Rice production will hit 7million tons next year  Ogbeh

THE Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, has said the country is aiming to scale up rice production to seven million tons by the middle of next year.
This is just as the Minister said that Nigeria will scale up its milling capacity to compete globally as the largest producers and processors of rice.
Ogbeh who disclosed this while speaking with Tribune Online on whether Nigeria is the second largest producer of rice globally, said “for those who said it is not true, I think they need to have a second look.”
He said the current statement for the Presidency that Nigeria is the second largest producer of rice was true adding that Nigeria has done everything needed to do in rice production to attain that height.
According to him, “We are aiming to hit seven million tons by the middle of next which is our National consumption, we want to go beyond that.
“I have been to Vietnam, there is nothing they have done in rice production that we have not done; the only thing we need to do now is to increase our milling capacity which we are increasing.
“Our milling capacity is still not up to speed, we are going to achieve that, and once we do, we have no argument with anyone about whether we are producing that quantity or not.
“But people may ask why is the price of rice us still N20,000 per bag, we are feeding 193million Nigerians, we are also feeding another 100million in the West and North Africa, nobody argue with the fact that trucks come from Ghana to Funtua and load grains, they come from Burkina Faso and Mali, from Niger Republic, from Chad to our markets, to load grains and they are still loading for two reasons, our devaluation had made it cheaper for them to shop in Nigeria and our production is such that we are able to satisfy those markets.”
Ogbeh said that currently, about a hundred rice mill is ready for distribution across the country. He said some of the mills will be distributed to Cooperatives and communities, and the terms of distribution will be favourable.
His words: “We have a hundred rice mills for distribution, some can mill 10 tons per day, which will mainly go to cooperatives, some will mill 20 tons per day, while some will mill 50 tons per day and 100 tons per day and the terms of sale and distribution to communities will be very generous.

State temporarily lapses rules for rice farmers affected by August floods

By Carly LaingPublished: February 22, 2017, 6:51 pm  Updated: February 22, 2017, 6:51 pm
CROWLEY, La. (KLFY) – It’s been six months since the historic flood and rice farmers are just now seeing the damage as they prepare the 2017 crop.Back in August, farmers watched 24 inches of rainfall on their crops in just 36 hours.
Acadia Parish Rice Farmer Al Cramer said rice that was saturated in the flood is being used in this year’s crop.
“The rice that was planted in 2016, some of that rice is being used to seed the fields in 2017, so we are having to use the crop that went through the flood to plant the crop for 2017.”
LSU Agcenter Rice Research Station Director Steve Linscombe said the rice affected by the flood had to go through a long testing process before they could determine the impact.
“It takes several months before we would have an idea that this problem existed, so it has popped within the last month or so.”
Linscombe said his tests are showing low germination.
“The germ of rice is the amount of seeds that sprout when you plant the seed back,” said Cramer.
“Currently the state seed law requires that at least 80 of those hundred germinate, and we’re seeing lots of seed where that is lower than 80 percent down to the mid-sixties,” said Linscombe.
That means farmers will have to plant extra crops this year.
“Farmers will have to plant a little bit more per acre, as far as seed is concerned, to compensate for the lower germination seed.”
Linscombe said the state is trying to help farmers by allowing germination lower than 80 percent.
“Our farmers are very resilient. This is just another issue they are dealing with, they deal with issues every year. We just need a good crop, good environmental conditions, and we need the price to go up as much as it can go up.”
