Rice prices must be kept steady

Updated June 23, 2018, 3:58 PM
Amid reports of rising prices of consumer goods, rising fuel costs, moves to increase water rates, proposals to raise light rail transit fares, and a record low peso value of P53 to the US dollar, one bright item for consumers stood out in this week’s reports – a drop in the price of rice, the national staple.
Rice imported by the National Food Authority arrived last week and was unloaded at Subic Port. Another shipment arrived at the Cebu International Port for distribution in Central Visayas. Other shipments arrived at the Surigao port for Mindanao. With the impending availability of the imported stocks, NFA rice prices are expected to drop to P27 to P32 per kilo. This in turn should cause the prices of commercial rice stocks to fall to P36 to P38 per kilo.
Rice is one commodity whose price the government cannot allow to rise beyond the capacity of the country’s poorest sectors. This is why, despite the Department of Agriculture’s assurances that the country’s farmers can now provide most of what the nation needs, we continue to purchase hundreds of thousands of tons of cheap rice from Vietnam and Thailand.
When NFA stocks fell some weeks ago, with cavans of rice down to a few levels on the bodega floors, the prices of all kinds of rice started rising in the country’s markets. President Duterte immediately ordered new importations. These are the ones which have now arrived in Subic, Cebu, and Surigao. Photos of rice cavans rising all the way to the ceiling have appeared in the country’s newspapers and the reassuring sight has eased the nation’s fears of shortage and sent prices down.
The cheap imported rice, with 15 to 25 percent broken grains, assure the poorer families that they will continue to have an adequate supply for their needs. Most of the nation will be consuming the rice produced by our own farmers.
This local production has been steadily on the rise over the years, with the increasing use of high-yielding varieties, the increasing areas now having free irrigation, rising farm mechanization, and the rising number of famers’ cooperatives and other associations benefiting from the economies of scale.
Secretary of Agriculture Emmanuel Piñol has said the Philippines should reach the goal of self-sufficiency by 2020 under a program that includes over a million hectares of hybrid rice, installment of small irrigation systems, the use of solar power for irrigation nationwide, and added financing for farmers.
President Duterte says that anytime rice prices rise too much for the poorer folk, they must be brought down with rice importations, such as what was done these last few weeks. But the ultimate goal remains – that one day we will not need to import from Vietnam or Thailand because our own farmers will be producing enough for our people’s needs.

ASIA RICE-THAI PRICES DIP TO 2018 LOWS, WEAK DEMAND WEIGHS ON INDIA RATES

6/21/2018
* Thai prices slip by about $38/t this week
* Vietnam market quiet, but prices expected to fall
By Swati Verma
BENGALURU, June 21 (Reuters) - Rice prices in Thailand slid
to their lowest this year on sluggish demand and the prospect of
higher supplies, while rates eased in top exporter India this
week due to subdued buying from Africa and Bangladesh.
Thailand's benchmark 5 percent broken rice <RI-THBKN5-P1>
dropped to $390-$400 per tonne this week, free on board (FOB)
Bangkok, from $430-$435 last week.
At an average of $395 per tonne, this week's export prices
are almost on the same level as the average price of $393-$396
seen in the week of Jan. 4.
A combination of ample supply in warehouses, mills
suspending trade, a weaker Thai baht versus the dollar and slow
logistics due to the monsoon season pushed prices down, traders
in Bangkok said.
"The warehouses are full but the ships aren't here," atrader said.
Thailand aims to export 10 million tonnes of rice this year.Rice prices in the country will likely slip further as a newcrop is expected to start arriving around the end of June orearly July until August, traders said."Demand is still slow as people are waiting to see if priceswill fall further," another trader said.
On Thursday, Thailand's commerce ministry however said thatthere are enough rice purchases by major importers from thebeginning of the year to absorb Thai rice supply and stabilizeprices until August.
The ministry is also expecting a sixthgovernment-to-government deal with China, which will buy 100,000tonnes of Thai rice, as well as private deals with majorimporters Indonesia, Bangladesh and some African countries.
Prices in top exporter India also fell this week as demand was subdued from African buyers.
Buying from neighbouring Bangladesh also nearly stoppedafter it imposed a 28 percent tax on rice imports to support its farmers as the country's local production revived.
"Bangladesh is no longer in the market due to (the) duty hike," said an exporter based at Kakinada in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh.
India was the biggest supplier of rice to Bangladesh in2017.Rates for India's 5 percent broken parboiled variety<RI-INBKN5-P1> fell by $4 to $394-$398 per tonne.
Rice prices in India have corrected recently due to weakdemand, said Nitin Gupta, vice president of the rice business atOlam India.Meanwhile in Vietnam, prices of 5 percent broken rice<RI-VNBKN5-P1> were unchanged from the previous week at$450-$455 a tonne.
"The market has been quiet and there have been no new dealsclinched recently, as prices of Vietnamese rice are not ascompetitive as those of Thai products," a Ho chi Minh City-basedtrader said."I think prices are under pressure to ease over the comingweeks due to additional supplies from the ongoing spring-summerharvest," the trader said.(Reporting by Patpicha Tanakasempipat in Bangkok, Khanh Vu inHanoi, Rajendra Jadhav in Mumbai and Ruma Paul in Dhaka; Editingby Jan Harvey)

The EU has said its retaliatory tariffs on US goods will kick-in from Friday - six weeks after America slapped import duties on the bloc's steel and aluminium products.
Officials in Brussels, spearheading the member states' response, said the list of US imports that will now face an extra duty at the EU border includes steel and aluminium products, agricultural goods and a variety of other products.
Duties of 25% will be applied to the raft of US goods worth €2.8bn - including bourbon, make-up and motorbikes - from 22 June.
The move has the potential to make many items commonly sold on supermarket shelves - like long grain rice, cranberry juice, orange juice and sweetcorn - jump in price.
There is also a notable addition at the end of the long list of products - a 10% tariff on playing cards.

"We did not want to be in this position. However, the unilateral and unjustified decision of the US to impose steel and aluminium tariffs on the EU means that we are left with no other choice," said the bloc's trade commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom.
"The rules of international trade, which we have developed over the years hand in hand with our American partners, cannot be violated without a reaction from our side.
"Our response is measured, proportionate and fully in line with WTO rules. Needless to say, if the US removes its tariffs, our measures will also be removed."
The EU announced its response on Wednesday as the US and China were locked in a war of words over a threat of an extension of tariffs.
Last week, the United States imposed 25% tariffs on $50bn of Chinese products, with Beijing immediately retaliating by matching the US levy.
However, President Donald Trump has now asked officials to identify a further $200bn of Chinese goods to be subject to a 10% tariff.

There was shock when the world's largest economy confirmed earlier this month that it was imposing the duties on the EU, Canada and Mexico from 1 June, as part of Mr Trump's protectionist agenda aimed at saving US jobs.
Canada and Mexico followed with tit-for-tat tariffs on US steel and aluminium.

Gov. Ambode’s Aide Cautions On Border Closure Against Rice Importation

Okalawon said that this was to avoid consumption deficit.
 On Jun 22, 2018

Sanni Okanlawon, the Special Adviser on Food Security to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State, on Friday advised the Federal Government to apply caution as it planned to close the nation’s borders against rice importation.
Okanlawon said that this was to avoid consumption deficit.
Okanlawon told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that though the closure would boost the productivity of local farmers, he added that the ripples effects on certain aspects of the rice value-chain should also be considered.
He said that the milling capacity of the country was at the lowest level and might not be able to meet the production and consumption deficit of the commodity.
He said: “The proposed border closure by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development is a laudable one that will boost local production of rice, which is the cascade effect.
“However, let me caution here that before such a step is taken, there must be improved milling capacities across the country.
“Although, the smuggling of rice is not helping matters, our rice-milling capacity as a nation is inadequate. I understand the country produces 500 million metric tons of rice paddy.
“How much of that production do we have the capacity to mill; how many mills do we have in Nigeria, these are questions we should consider.”
The aide said that the Lagos State Government was in the process of establishing a rice mill in Imota, near Epe that would be able to produce 32,000 metric tons per hour when it started operations.
According to him, after such high-milling sites have been established across the country, then will the border closure stop the rice smuggling.
Okanlawon said that when the milling capacity of the country was improved, then we would be able to meet our consumption deficit.
“Lagos State has taken several steps to upscale and improve milling capacity; and if other states can do same, then, we will have enough, beat our chest and we can boldly close our borders.
“I want to believe that the minister meant the closure of all the illegal borders.”
The special adviser expressed fears over the various illegal routes in some states of the country that had limited security personnel.
NAN reports that the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh, had on June 19, ordered the closure of the land borders to guide against smuggling of rice.

illar pitches ‘perpetual’ rice fund once QR goes

By Jasper Emmanuel Y. Arcalas & Cai U. Ordinario
THE Senate Committee on Food and Agriculture wants to perpetually earmark at least P10 billion to the rice sector annually once the quantitative restriction (QR) on the staple is scrapped.
Sen. Cynthia A. Villar, committee chairman, said she will incorporate a provision mandating the allocation of P10 billion to the rice sector every year in the Senate’s version of the rice-tariffication bill.
This provision, Villar said, would improve the productivity of rice farmers and help them become competitive with their Southeast Asian counterparts who can produce rice at a lower cost.
“I have conditions that they [economic managers] have to meet. For example, they have to set aside P10 billion for rice farmers to help them mechanize and buy [better] seeds to hike their income and make them competitive,” she told reporters at the sidelines of a coastal cleaning event in Kawit, Cavite, on June 20.
“Even if the government imposes a 35-percent tariff on rice from Vietnam, if our farmers are not competitive, they will still be edged out by foreign producers,” Villar added.
She said the P10-billion fund should be initially shouldered by the national government. Later on, the amount can be drawn from tariffs collected from rice imports.
“There will be a rice competitiveness enhancement fund [RCEF] from the tariffication. But if we are going to wait for that, then our farmers would lose right away,” she said. “The government has to frontload P10 billion.”
Villar said she is “lukewarm” to the House of Representatives’s proposal to limit the effectivity of the RCEF to six years.
“[The RCEF] should be perpetual unless the [law] is amended. For me, I am not keen on a six-year effectivity period. It should only be removed once the farmers are competitive,” she added.
The House version of the rice-tariffication bill includes a provision mandating the creation of the RCEF, which would consist of all the tariffs earned from rice imports. But if necessary, Congress could pass a measure amending the law to extend the life of the RCEF.
The earlier House version indicated that the RCEF would be perpetual. It was later on amended to reflect the recommendation of the Department of Finance to limit the fund’s effectivity to six years.
Removing the QR on rice by amending Republic Act  8178 would allow the government to generate P27 billion annually, according to a paper published by the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS).
The PIDS paper noted that the projected revenues would come from the importation of some 2.2 million metric tons of rice at a 35-percent tariff. Purchases of imported rice are expected to increase once the government removes  the QR.
Economists and some farmers’ groups said the P10 billion is not enough to make Filipino rice planters competitive.
“Our preference is to earmark all tariffs collected from rice imports to the sector, as indicated in the House version of the bill,” Raul Q. Montemayor, national business manager and program officer of the Federation of Free Farmers, told the BusinessMirror.
“The P10 billion is less than what is expected be collected in just the first year. We basically support the House version but would prefer a longer earmarking period,” Montemayor added.
He said his group would recommend an effectivity period of 10 years for the RCEF, which could be reviewed to determine whether it should be extended.
Dr. Rolando T. Dy, executive director of the University of Asia and the Pacific’s Center for Food and Agri Business, said the life of the RCEF should be limited to only 10 years.
“I think 10 years is enough to be competitive or not. The key is choice. Either [rice farmers] become productive, or they diversity their crops in 10 years,” Dy told the BusinessMirror.
‘Counterproductive’
Some experts said, however, that the creation of a fund to help farmers cope with the removal of the QR could discourage competitiveness, especially if it does not have a clear timeline.
Sans a “time bound” fund, former Tariff Commissioner George Manzano told the BusinessMirror that rice farmers could become “complacent.”
“It may be better if the fund is time-bound or there are performance measures for it to be extended,” Manzano said in a phone interview on Thursday.
Manzano said the fund is a form of cash transfer that can be periodically reviewed. This, he said, is crucial, since the source of the fund will initially come from the national government and then from tariffs collected by the Bureau of Customs.
Not a subsidy
He also said the rice fund should not be considered as a form of subsidy, which is widely frowned upon by other member-countries of the World Trade Organization (WTO).
National Economic and Development Authority  Undersecretary for Planning and Policy Rosemarie G. Edillon shared this sentiment and said that the rice fund is a form of “welfare assistance” to poor farmers.
“We think the WTO will agree with the social objectives of the fund, given the poverty incidence in the sector,” Edillon told the BusinessMirror via SMS.
She said one of the goals of the fund is to help rice farmers increase their competitiveness and diversify to other crops.
“The details of the fund are still being worked out. Broadly, it’s intended to increase competitiveness, in the case of productive rice farms. For unproductive farms, it will support diversification,” Edillon said.

Duo: Rice price dip temporary

Weather, Vietnam crop could cause drop
A high-ranking state official and a rice exporter came out in concert to defend a recent dip in rice prices, saying the fall is short-lived.
Deputy Commerce Minister Chutima Bunyapraphasara said the recent price drop might stem from purchase delays by rice importers and heavy rains deterring transport and rice delivery.
The Internal Trade Department reported domestic prices of 5% white milled rice (newly harvested) had risen to 12,900-13,000 baht a tonne in late April, while the export prices of 5% white rice announced by Thai Rice Exporters Association were quoted at US$459 per tonne as of April 25.
Both prices remained steady until early June, when the department reported domestic 5% white rice prices dropped to 12,100-12,200 baht a tonne, while export prices were quoted by the association on June 13 at $437 a tonne.
Ms Chutima said there is nothing to worry about as the decline is only short term. Thailand's rice prospects remain in good shape and massive purchase orders for Thai rice have accrued from earlier months from Malaysia, Indonesia, China and the Philippines.
She said more purchase orders in the second half of the year are anticipated from China, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and Africa.
"The Commerce Ministry remains confident of achieving its rice export target of 10 million tonnes this year," she said.
Charoen Laothamatas, president of the Thai Rice Exporters Association, said the recent fall for both for the domestic and export rice prices likely stems from lower imports after traders ramped up their purchases earlier, as indicated by Thailand's rice export figures, which rose 4% in the first five months of this year to 4.5 million tonnes.
"Average exports of 900,000 tonnes a month is considered high and the shipments were mostly white rice," he said.
Mr Charoen said the export price dip was partly because of new supply from Vietnam's summer-autumn rice crop, scheduled for harvest in late June. The new supply has weakened demand for Thai grains, leading certain importers to buy rice from Vietnam, he said.

US Fostering Trade Relationship with Japan Amidst Other Ongoing Trade Disputes

 JUNE 21, 2018 AGRI-BUSINESS TRADE
Under Secretary of Agriculture for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs, Ted McKinney led a trip last week to help foster a better trade relationship with Japan.  The trade mission was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and had approximately 100 participants, making the effort the largest in USDA history.  The goal of the trip was to engage new contacts and hopefully garner additional customers for U.S. agricultural products in Japan’s two largest cities, Tokyo and Osaka.
“Japan is already a top market for U.S. farm and food products, but there are many new opportunities still waiting to be tapped there,” McKinney previously said in a statement.  “Japan is an import-dependent economy and its 130 million consumers have a real affinity for U.S. food products because of their quality, affordability, and safety.”
Japan is currently the fourth largest market for American agricultural products, with nearly $12 billion worth of shipments being exported in 2017.  While the more lucrative commodities exported to Japan were beef and pork products, the U.S. rice industry has a significant interest in cultivating a better trade relationship with Japan.
USA Rice Asia Promotion Programs Director Jim Guinn joined the group in Japan and spoke with several trade associations and various rice importers.  While opinions differ as to what domestic rice production will look like in Japan over the next ten years, market data indicates that rice importers and foodservice distributors have a significant interest in American rice.
Japan is the second largest single export market for U.S. milled rice at more than 661 million pounds, with a value of nearly $200 million.  However, there is growing pressure coming from Australia having short grain rice that is becoming more competitive in price compared to Calrose medium grain rice coming from the U.S.
“There are two types of foodservice end users currently using imported U.S. rice,” said Guinn.  “Those who decide to purchase based solely on the lower price of imported rice and another group who appreciate the versatility and end use characteristics of U.S. medium grain.  Indications are the larger and growing segment is the latter group.”

BOC says rice discharge halted by bad weather

June 21, 2018, 4:36 PM
By Betheena Kae Unite
Port congestion in Port of Manila was not the reason behind the delay of unloading of rice intended for the National Food Authority but bad weather, the port’s top official said Thursday.
The reason why the rice imports, which are intended for Metro Manila, have yet to be completely discharged from the vessel was due to the weather condition these past few days, Port of Manila District Collector Erastus Sandino Austria said.
Around 25,000 MT of imported rice from Vietnam are being unloaded to trucks at the Naval Supply Depot (NSD) in Subic Bay Freeport Zone on Wednesday.
(Jonas Reyes / MANILA BULLETIN)
“We cannot accurately call it port congestion because this is just a natural side-effect of bad weather condition,” Austria said.
According to the Customs official, the ongoing unloading of rice in was cut short at the Harbor Center, a composite unit under the Port of Manila classified as a subport.
Bulk shipments that pass through the port, Austria explained, are weather-dependent when it comes to discharging.
“It is the prerogative of the captain of the vessel as well as the consignee whether they will proceed with discharging during heavy downpour because the goods that are usually unloaded here are rice or fertilizers. And these cargoes are very sensitive to weather conditions,” Austria stressed.
“Naturally, the captain will discourage continuous discharging during heavy rains because it increases the liability of the carrier over the cargoes that are still within their custody. But as soon as the weather condition clears up, the discharging continuous,” he added.
Austria also noted that these kinds of shipments are not shipped in a container van. The cargoes are usually exposed, making them exposed to weather conditions.
“We really have to stop discharging and again it is not the prerogative of the Bureau of Customs to continue discharging or not but rather the consignee, the captain of the vessel. All customs processes of the shipment were also completed,” the collector said.

Villanueva: Of rice, life and an ailing society

 “RICE is life.”

Filipinos are known for their love of food, and meals are incomplete without rice. This just shows how important rice is in the lives of Filipinos.Then President Aquino declared the 2013 as the National Year of Rice (NYR) aims for rice self-sufficiency by promoting the RICEponsibility of Filipinos for better health, reducing rice wastage, and valuing farmers’ hard work. As a result, the Philippines achieved the highest rice harvest that year, and according to the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), the country achieved 97 percent rice self-sufficiency then.

At the start of 2018, news spread that the buffer stock of rice of the National Food Authority (NFA) is reaching its depletion. Warehouses of the NFA across the archipelago were reportedly already almost empty. This resulted to the shortage of the cheapest rice in the market. The remaining stocks were rationed. Consumers can only purchase a maximum of three kilos at a time.

Consumers are forced to buy the more expensive commercial rice, where the cheapest is sold at P40 per kilo, compared to price of NFA rice sold as low as P27 per kilo.

Considering that the family’s budget is essentially the same weekly, semi-monthly or monthly, with the more expensive goods, the family would feel poorer because their purchasing power is lesser. They would either lessen their consumption of rice or would spend less on other necessities.

Consequently, commercial rice became more expensive as a reaction to the decrease in the supply of rice in the market and the reduced competition from a cheaper type of rice. Note that the demand for rice did not change significantly from this price increase because rice is considered as a demand inelastic good (a good of which the consumption is not significantly affected by a price change).

Last February, NFA’s policy making council approved the importation of 250,000 metric tons of rice from Thailand for P24,000 per metric ton (or P24/kg), which was expected to arrive three months after.

The Philippines is rich with land resources used for agriculture, thus, still considered as an agricultural country (although a greater portion of the GDP is attributed to the output of services sector). A lingering question is that as an agricultural country, why is the Philippines considered as the second largest importer of rice worldwide?

Surprisingly, the Philippines has been importing rice for over a century already. Prof. Davidson (2016) of the National University of Singapore notes that at the latter part of the 1800s, the Philippines was already experiencing rice deficit, due to Spain’s trade constraints, loss of China as a trading partner to Siam, and effects of years of El Nino occurrences since 1870s.

While waiting for the imported stocks to arrive, NFA in its effort to beef up their stocks, chose to buy from domestic farmers at a price no higher than P17 per kilo. Another question in mind is, “If NFA can buy rice from Thailand for P24 per kilogram, why is it that NFA cannot buy rice from our farmers for no more than P17 per kilogram?”

Unfortunately, NFA cannot directly compete with private rice traders who can buy rice at a higher price. The budget of NFA just cannot match the farm gate prices offered by traders. Although President Duterte ordered the increase of the buying price by as much as P3 per kilo so that NFA can compete with the private traders, NEDA expressed their concern as this would lead to relatively huge inflation. I have no idea if this even push through.

Even if the government can match that of the traders, the reality is that farmers would still end up selling their produce to the traders whom they are deeply indebted to. The traders are the people that the farmers run to for their farm needs. They would borrow funds from the traders to buy seedlings, fertilizers, pesticides, and for other farm-related expenses and, of course, interest is charged.

Come harvest time, the traders collect from the farmers. The farmers are forced to sell their produce to the traders, who will deduct the farmers’ loan and give back the excess to the farmer, which they would make do until the next harvest season.

The poor farmers are left with no choice but to avail of these oppressive facilities even if government financial institutions like LandBank, cooperative and rural banks aim to assist them. Hazel Tanchuling of Rice Watch and Action Network in an interview in 2014 disclosed that about one percent of small farmers have access to these formal credit facilities, mainly due to their stringent documentary requirements.

PSA reported that prices of rice in April have risen by about 4.5% from January. The higher price of rice contributed to inflation bloating further. Aware of this pressing problem, President Duterte last April ordered private rice traders to help the government augment cheap rice supply in the market by selling rice by as low as P39 per kilogram.

Honestly, I don’t have any idea if there were traders who actually heeded the President’s call.

According to Celia Reyes, et. al. (2008) of CBMS Philippines, the impact of rising price of rice (and fuel) differs among various groups. Urban households are more affected by the price increases compared to those in the rural areas. The poorest households are the most vulnerable and the most adversely affected by increase in the price of rice. These households are coping by modifying their consumption patterns, increasing amount spent on food, and health or education would take the burden.

Sacrificing these two necessities would definitely have long-run effects on the households.

Rice is not just food; it is life. The problem on rice does not only denote the prospective nutrition and hunger problems that are experienced by Filipinos. It is a reflection of a deeper, systemic problem in our society nowadays.

Firstly, despite the natural resilience of Filipinos and the constant reminder of, “kapag maikli ang kumot, matutong mamaluktot.” I truly believe that this problem could have been avoided if the government officials were responsible enough to ensure food security in our country.

They had to wait until their warehouses are almost empty before they had to do something. This with the naiveté that all matters are in order. No shady deals and the like.

Secondly, our country is rich in natural and human resources. The Philippines is considered as an agricultural country yet we are the second largest importer of rice at present.

In the 1960s, our competency in rice production and research was recognized with the establishment of the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI). I believe we have a lot of potential in rice production. However, brain drain is happening. The best and the brightest scientists leave the country for greener pastures. If they were given enough incentive and competitive compensation, they would choose to stay and work towards sustainable rice self-sufficiency.

Thirdly, the poor farmers are left without support from the government, and are pushed to go to oppressive lenders. It is ironic that those who toil for our food are the ones experiencing hunger. Make agricultural credit accessible to those who need it the most.

I was able to prove in my master’s theses that agricultural credit has no impact on the agricultural output, where it should be one variable that could increase output exponentially. However, this support for the farmers has not been handled properly, e.g. Fertilizer Scam and Jocjoc Bolante, which until now the embezzlers have not yet been punished.

Support the farmers and this will ensure our self-sufficiency.

Finally, the impact of the rising price of rice may differ whether one is an urban or rural dweller, and the poorest households may be the most vulnerable, however, the fact is everyone is affected by this problem.

Due to these price increases, we are forced to forego of other important needs in order to suffice the need for food. Some may have foregone health when instead of buying medicines for a sick member of the household, rice was bought. Others have foregone education, children from the household dropped out of school because it was a choice of buying food or buying pencil or paper.

The long-run effects when these two are foregone are unimaginable. I am afraid that we will have a sick and illiterate society in the future if the government fails to install safety nets for this problem. It is about time for the people at the top of bureaucracy to focus on what is more important. Stop wasting government resources in addressing resultant problems. Drugs is a result of a more complex problem which is hunger, poverty. When the root of the problem is addressed, solutions to all other problems will follow.

Salahuddin Ayub says the special committee to study Bernas’ monopoly of the rice industry would come with a new model that should improve the pricing of rice. – The Malaysian Insight pic by Hasnoor Hussain, June 21, 2018.
PUTRAJAYA’S special committee to study Bernas’ monopoly of the rice industry will present its findings and recommendations to the cabinet in August, said Salahuddin Ayub.
The agriculture and agro-based industry minister said the committee would come with a new model that should improve pricing of the staple.
"Bernas has a concession that ends in 2021, so we will have to look into that again first," he said at the Lembaga Pertubuhan Peladang Tower today.
The monopoly of the Syed Mokhtar al-Bukhary-owned Bernas on rice imports will be studied by the committee set up by Putrajaya to look at monopolies in four government entities.
The committee is chaired by Economic Affairs Minister Azmin Ali.
Salahuddin said the committee studying the matter comprises the Agriculture and Agro-based Ministry, Transport Ministry, and Health Ministry.
"The committee will be carrying out workshops and studies on how they will introduce the new model."
Salahuddin also said that it had urged the National Agriculture Advisory Council (NAAC) and the Selangor Agricultural Department to come up with proposals for the new model.
NAAC was set up early this month to help the government raise the levels of national food security and agricultural exports.
Salahuddin said that Bernas was also welcomed to submit proposals for the new model.
"We cannot take an unfair approach. Bernas can also come up with the proposals.
"There must be representation from all parties. The new model is open to all players.
"Azmin will soon be meeting all the committee members."
He also said that the objective of the committee and the new model was to bring down the price of rice.
"Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has agreed that looking into Bernas again is crucial to the country and the people.
"The committee is expected to complete their study by the middle of July." – June 21, 2018.

Partners collaborate to boost rice production, distribution

 21 June 2018
Supplying West Africa Traders (SWAT) and Cultivating New Frontier in Agriculture (CNFA) in collaboration with Liberia Agriculture Development Activity (LADA) Wednesday, June 20 signed a Public Private Partnership (PPP) to boost production and distribution of local rice and empower farmers in support of government’s pro-poor agenda.
CNFA/LADA is under the United States Government’s feed the future initiative with funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
The goal of LADA is to increase incomes of smallholder farmers (SHFs) through increasing private sector investment in the Liberia’s agribusiness sector.
The PPP agreement with SWAT supports component II of the CNFA/LADA program which calls for market facilitation and policy advocacy for Liberian farmers and actors along LADA’s four supply chains (rice, cassava, vegetables and aquaculture).
SWAT, one of the importers of rice in the country in consultation with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry continues conversation with CNFA/LADA that led to the conclusion of the PPP agreement.
The agreement, according to the two institutions, aims to boost distribution of quality locally grown rice, while empowering rice farmers to increase production.
The partnership seeks to achieve an annual good quality milled rice production of roughly 15,000 metric tons in Liberia, which would help reduce imports by 30 percent at end of 2020.
Under the agreement, SWAT will support development of rice processing capacity by providing technical advice to local processors, purchasing local quality rice that meets established specifications and eventually investing in local processing.
The company will consider provision of auxiliary services such as warehousing, transportation and equipment lease to rice sector actors, among others.
On the other hand, CNFA/LADA will support procurement of rice processing mills for local entrepreneurs to establish or expand private sector agro-enterprises, promote full-time operation of mills procured with LADA support.
SWAT’s Chief Executive Officer, George N. Nehme, speaking following the signing ceremony expressed gratitude to President George Weah for challenging importers to look into investing in local production and holding consultations with the Ministries of Commerce and Industry, and Agriculture, including technicians from there who remain committed to supporting this initiative.
Nehme also thanked USAID-Liberia and CNFA/LADA team for continuing to build the capacity of local farmers to produce more rice for the Liberian market.
“We are happy about this agreement because it is a new beginning to increase rice production working together with the farmers as partners. My team at SWAT has been supporting this process over the last several months,” he said.
He also thanked John Bestman, chairman of the Liberia Rice Importers Association for his support in making the event come to light and other partners as well.
For his part, the chief of party of LADA, Willem Van Campen reminded the participants that rice is the staple food of Liberia, with a population of approximately 5million.
“Huge quantities of about 400,000 metric tons of rice are imported every year. This represents more 50% of the total consumption of a total value of about US$200million per year. The situation is not only a question of food security and food sovereignty. It is also an important issue for the use of foreign exchange and for the overall Liberian economy,” he said.
He pledged the unflinching support of CNFA/LADA to ensure the partnership succeeds and boost the agriculture sector of the country. The signing ceremony was witnessed by officials of the Ministries of Commerce, Finance and Agriculture as well as other partners. Agriculture Minister Mogana Flomo pledged the commitment of the ministry in making sure the partnership succeeds. \

Jasmine eyes 40pc growth in next five years


By ZARINA ZAKARIAH - 
SHAH ALAM: Rice producer Jasmine Food Corporation (Jasmine) Sdn Bhd is eyeing a 40 per cent capacity growth in the next five years with target to increase capacity to 20,000 tonnes per month.
Chief executive officer Lim Swee Keat said the company currently is at maximum capacity of 14,000 tonnes per month, and with the introduction of higher technology and efficient production, it would be to increase production.
"We will be spending about RM30 million for the technology upgrade and other costs involved. With the upgrade, we will be able to increase the capacity to 40 per cent higher.
"We are also targeting about 12 per cent in market share following the implement of the expansion plans in the next five years," he told NST Business and Harian Metro in a recent exclusive interview.
Jasmine distributes and markets a range of rice in Malaysia with products including fragrant rice, basmathi rice, imported and local white rice, specialty rice, brown rice, glutinous rice and rice vermicelli.
In 1997, Jasmine became a subsidiary of Padiberas Nasional Bhd (Bernas), importing a wide variety of rice from Thailand, Myanmar, China, Vietnam, India, Pakistan, Australia and USA.
With the recent announcement of the abolishment of the goods and services tax (GST), Lim said Jasmine’s rice prices will remain the same despite the return of the sales and services tax (SST).
“It does not impact us much as we are zero rated. We can ask to be exempted for other items such plastic bags.
“Under the SST, we cannot claim the government for the tax and we have to pay the supplier. With the return of SST, impact will be minimal to the customers.
“Other tax will be absorbed by us because not all things are subjected to the 10 per cent SST. Local industry is also regulated so price hike is not permitted,” he added.
Prime Minister Tun Mahathir Mohamed recently said the government will be relooking into existing monopolistic policies in the country.
“We will decide whether to abolish it entirely, expand or limit these existing policies,” he said after chairing a weekly Cabinet meeting at Kompleks Perdana Putra.
Mahathir cited an example of monopolistic policies existing within the rice import industry in the country.
“We have to look into its operation to see whether it is good for the country,” he added.
Lim said rice is a highly regulated industry. Malaysia imports 60 per cent of rice for consumer consumption. It is considered the staple food for the country.
“We are also leaning towards producing for the middle to high-end products with emphasis on the healthy rice as well as fragrant rice while maintaining the lower end white rice production.
Jasmine’s mill is located in Tunjang, Alor Setar on a 25 acre site.
The Tunjang mill processes padi that is obtained from local farms and processing capacity stands at 50,000 tonnes per annum.

2018 Farm Bill Passes House; Senate Version Next Up  
By Jamison Cruce
 WASHINGTON, DC -- Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed its version of the Farm Bill, The Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018 (H.R. 2), by a vote of 213-211, with no Democrats supporting the bill.  Several provisions advocated for by USA Rice were included in this version of the bill:  maintenance and enhancement of a strong farm safety net for producers, expansion to the definition of family in determining actively engaged participants on the farm, and reduction of burdensome paperwork and increased access to conservation programs for producers. 

The report language produced with the bill includes a provision encouraging the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to develop crop insurance endorsements for alternate wetting and drying, and furrow irrigation practices.

"USA Rice is sincerely grateful for the hard work and tremendous efforts of Chairman Mike Conaway (R-TX), Ranking Member Collin Peterson (D-MN), Rick Crawford (R-AR), Ralph Abraham (R-LA), Trent Kelly (R-MS), Doug LaMalfa (R-CA), and Mike Bost (R-IL), as well as all others who helped secure provisions supporting the rice industry," said Joe Mencer, Arkansas rice farmer and chairman of the USA Rice Farmers.  "This is a great step forward in the process to finalize a farm bill needed to provide long term certainty for rice farmers."


Next week, the Senate will begin the process for consideration of its version of the Farm Bill, the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (S. 3042).  It's reported that a Senate vote could be held as early as next Thursday.  Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues to express his desire to vote on the bill prior to the July 4th recess.

Mencer said, "USA Rice looks forward to working with the Senate on its version of the Farm Bill to produce legislation that works for the U.S. rice industry."The current Farm Bill expires on September 30, leaving three months for a new bill to be signed into law.


Botswana: Nhabe Has Potential to Grow Hybrid Rice


By Esther Mmolai
Maun — Maun Administration Authority senior assistance council secretary, Ms Mogomotsi Seemule says Nhabe region has the potential to be a site for growing hybrid rice.When giving feedback following a recent benchmarking trip to China, he said the hybrid rice project was once piloted in the district and investigations had indicated that it did not fail, but collapsed after being handed over to the community due to lack of commitment.
Some officials from North West District Council attended a conference co-hosted by the Human Provincial People's Government and the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (CPAFFC).
The conference was held with the main purpose of strengthening China-Africa economic and trade cooperation and the CPAFFC invited the Botswana Association of Local Authorities.
BALA, therefore, extended the opportunity to its five members to the occasion, of which North West District was included.
She said following the bench marking trip, there was hope the council could re-group people and consider revitalising the project, which seemed viable.
She observed that there was potential for a research centre establishment on producing hybrid seeds in partnership with China, adding that they could also investigate the potential linking relationship with existing government seed research centre structures.
In addition, Ms Seemule said the region was at an advantage to have Okavango Research Institute and believed the institute would be interested to assist in conducting research.
She explained that the project was progressing well in China, adding that the country had indicated its intention to produce more rice to feed the whole world by 2050.
Currently, China is feeding half the world and the intention is to feed 60 per cent of the world in 2030 through the increase of rice yields.
Furthermore, Ms Seemule reported that China had expressed interest to partner with the district in trading of locally made products.
She said Ngamiland could take advantage to export its indigenous products such as Tswii, dried fish, weaved baskets and other products to the Chinese market.
If the partnership could see the green light, she said they would need to empower the communities to form cooperatives while the council establishes a central marketplace, which aimed to assist beneficiaries in packaging and marketing the products.
"We have the potential to export our indigenous products to the Chinese market through a partnership with the Changsha Agricultural logistic centre.
We can also establish an internet page to sell our products online," she added.
Ms Seemule said National Food Technology Research Centre had also opened doors to assist in the training of beneficiaries so that they produce quality products.
The centre has devoted its efforts to ensuring the availability of safe, quality and nutritious food to Batswana through a number of activities in the area of food quality, development and dissemination of food processing technologies as well as food and nutrition programmes.

Clear dues by June 30 or face FIR, rice millers told

Since 2011, millers owe Rs 238 crore to state govt

The mills owe over 95,000 metric tonnes of rice to the government and various agencies which procure paddy. File photo

Tribune News Service
Chandigarh, June 20
With rice millers owing Rs 238.27 crore to the state government since 2011, the Food and Supplies Department plans to not only bring the defaulters to book but also take action against its officials failing to make the recoveries.
Setting a deadline of June 30 to clear all dues, the government has decided to register FIRs against the rice millers who have failed to mill the stock assigned to them and book or chargesheet the officials for failing in their duty.
According to information, two FIRs have already been registered against mill owners this season which began in October though the exact default will be assessed after June 30 deadline given to the millers for the paddy procured by the government or any of the state’s procurement agencies if an extension is not given.
The mills owe over 95,000 metric tonnes of rice to the government and various agencies which procure paddy during the procurement season. The paddy is assigned to the rice millers on the list drawn up by the committee headed by the Deputy Commissioner on the basis of their milling capacity. They are given milling schedules from October through June and the default is assessed on the basis of the stock that does not come back.
While one mill each defaulted in payment in 2011 and 2012 and 2013 and 2014 were the worst years as far as the recovery was concerned. In 2013, rice millers of eight districts defaulted in nearly Rs 131 crore of which 16 mills were in Karnal.
In 2014, 10 mills defaulted in payment of Rs 37.48 crore of which six were from Karnal. In 2016, three millers were booked for defaulting in payment of Rs 4.64 crore.
Sources in the department said that the mills, which default in payment, intentionally hold their stocks and make money by selling this in the open market.
“We are not going to treat default in payment lightly. While two cases have been registered this season, we have also registered 19 FIRs for defaults in previous years. For this season, we are not even going to spare our own officials and FIRs will be registered against millers and our district Food and Supply officers,” said Additional Chief Secretary (Food and Supplies) Ram Niwas. http://www.tribuneindia.com/news/haryana/clear-dues-by-june-30-or-face-fir-rice-millers-told/608219.html

Allies line up to impose retaliatory trade tariffs on US

Turkey and India become the latest Washington allies to impose millions of dollars in levies on American goods.
21 Jun 2018
The US is the fifth-largest market for Turkish exports and trade volume amounted to $20.6bn in 2017 [File: Reuters]
Turkey and India announced on Thursday retaliatory tariffs worth hundreds of millions of dollars on goods imported from the United States, joining the growing list of Washington allies that have taken similar measures.
Ankara said it is imposing $266.5m of levies on imports of US automobiles, coal and several food items, in response to the  "ill-advised" and "unsupportable" additional steel tariffs enacted by Washington, Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci said.
The tariffs will also affect US products such as walnuts, almonds, tobacco, unprocessed rice, whisky, cosmetics, machinery equipment and petrochemical products.


"The total tariff burden today being imposed by Turkey on the US is commensurate with the additional costs Turkey faces due to the tariffs imposed on it by the US," Zeybekci said in a statement.
"They are proportional, measured and designed to protect Turkey's interests while encouraging dialogue."
The US is the fifth-largest market for Turkish exports and trade volume amounted to $20.6bn in 2017, official data showed.
US President Donald Trump decided in March to impose import duties of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminium, drawing criticism from other countries for heightening the risk of a global trade war.
In New Delhi, officials also announced on Thursday that India is imposing $240m worth of duties on American food products. The tariffs are expected to take effect on August 4.
"The tariffs would affect volumes of trade. The greater impact is in terms of the uncertainty created, with exporters on both sides not sure what will be covered next and by how much," New Delhi-based leading economist Jayati Ghosh told Al Jazeera.
"For global trade, the consequences are serious: if this continues, we will increasingly see unilateral protectionist moves," she added.

Risk of contagion

India had, for months, threatened to hit American goods and had filed a complaint before the World Trade Organisation against the US for violations of global trade rules.
India’s commerce ministry named some varieties of apples, almonds, chickpeas, lentils and walnuts that would carry higher import taxes.
Ghosh said the world economy is in for a really rough ride as the risk of contagion could hit capital flight and exchange rate instability. Sharp selloffs could hit consumer and business confidence, she said.
The consequences of the escalating trade conflicts are already visible, according to some of the most powerful central bank chiefs who had gathered in Portugal to discuss the state of the global economy on Wednesday.
"What's happening is very disturbing. Can anyone think of a country that's made itself wealthier or more productive by building walls?" Philip Lowe, head of the Reserve Bank of Australia, said at the meeting.
In recent weeks, Washington has also imposed tariffs on close allies like Europe, Canada and Mexico, as well as China.

'Unjustified decision'

The European Union said retaliatory trade tariffs on a list of US products will come into force on Friday.
The tariffs will initially target a list of US goods worth $3.24bn, most of which will be hit with import duties of 25 percent.
They range from agricultural products such as rice and orange juice to jeans, whiskey, motorbikes and various steel products.
"We did not want to be in this position. However, the unilateral and unjustified decision of the United States to impose steel and aluminium tariffs on the EU means that we are left with no other choice," EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom said.
The commission formally adopted the new tariffs, allowing them to come into effect on June 22.
Meanwhile, Canada responded by imposing dollar-for-dollar tariffs on steel, aluminium and maple syrup.
Mexico also imposed tariffs on American products ranging from steel to pork and bourbon. Mexico is the largest export market for American pork producers.
China has also been affected by the trade tariffs. Earlier this month, Washington imposed tariffs on tens of billions of dollars of Chinese goods.
President Trump said he ordered tariffs on $50bn in Chinese goods.
China hit back by raising import duties on tens of billions of dollars of US goods including lobsters, soybeans, electric cars and whiskey. Beijing said it was responding in "equal scale" to Trump's tariff rise on Chinese goods.
Mihir Sharma, economist and author, said that "the Trump administration's tariffs are a scatter-shot attempt to restore the US economy to the 1970s".
"They may succeed in saving a few thousand industrial jobs, but at an enormous cost to American competitiveness and American consumers," said Sharma, the author of "Restart: the last chance for the Indian economy".
"America's farmers, in particular, will discover how it is global integration and trade that has allowed most of them to stay in business."

Villanueva: Of rice, life and an ailing society

20 hours ago
“RICE is life.”

Filipinos are known for their love of food, and meals are incomplete without rice. This just shows how important rice is in the lives of Filipinos.

Then President Aquino declared the 2013 as the National Year of Rice (NYR) aims for rice self-sufficiency by promoting the RICEponsibility of Filipinos for better health, reducing rice wastage, and valuing farmers’ hard work. As a result, the Philippines achieved the highest rice harvest that year, and according to the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), the country achieved 97 percent rice self-sufficiency then.

At the start of 2018, news spread that the buffer stock of rice of the National Food Authority (NFA) is reaching its depletion. Warehouses of the NFA across the archipelago were reportedly already almost empty. This resulted to the shortage of the cheapest rice in the market. The remaining stocks were rationed. Consumers can only purchase a maximum of three kilos at a time.

Consumers are forced to buy the more expensive commercial rice, where the cheapest is sold at P40 per kilo, compared to price of NFA rice sold as low as P27 per kilo.

Considering that the family’s budget is essentially the same weekly, semi-monthly or monthly, with the more expensive goods, the family would feel poorer because their purchasing power is lesser. They would either lessen their consumption of rice or would spend less on other necessities.

Consequently, commercial rice became more expensive as a reaction to the decrease in the supply of rice in the market and the reduced competition from a cheaper type of rice. Note that the demand for rice did not change significantly from this price increase because rice is considered as a demand inelastic good (a good of which the consumption is not significantly affected by a price change).

Last February, NFA’s policy making council approved the importation of 250,000 metric tons of rice from Thailand for P24,000 per metric ton (or P24/kg), which was expected to arrive three months after.

The Philippines is rich with land resources used for agriculture, thus, still considered as an agricultural country (although a greater portion of the GDP is attributed to the output of services sector). A lingering question is that as an agricultural country, why is the Philippines considered as the second largest importer of rice worldwide?

Surprisingly, the Philippines has been importing rice for over a century already. Prof. Davidson (2016) of the National University of Singapore notes that at the latter part of the 1800s, the Philippines was already experiencing rice deficit, due to Spain’s trade constraints, loss of China as a trading partner to Siam, and effects of years of El Nino occurrences since 1870s.

While waiting for the imported stocks to arrive, NFA in its effort to beef up their stocks, chose to buy from domestic farmers at a price no higher than P17 per kilo. Another question in mind is, “If NFA can buy rice from Thailand for P24 per kilogram, why is it that NFA cannot buy rice from our farmers for no more than P17 per kilogram?”

Unfortunately, NFA cannot directly compete with private rice traders who can buy rice at a higher price. The budget of NFA just cannot match the farm gate prices offered by traders. Although President Duterte ordered the increase of the buying price by as much as P3 per kilo so that NFA can compete with the private traders, NEDA expressed their concern as this would lead to relatively huge inflation. I have no idea if this even push through.

Even if the government can match that of the traders, the reality is that farmers would still end up selling their produce to the traders whom they are deeply indebted to. The traders are the people that the farmers run to for their farm needs. They would borrow funds from the traders to buy seedlings, fertilizers, pesticides, and for other farm-related expenses and, of course, interest is charged.

Come harvest time, the traders collect from the farmers. The farmers are forced to sell their produce to the traders, who will deduct the farmers’ loan and give back the excess to the farmer, which they would make do until the next harvest season.

The poor farmers are left with no choice but to avail of these oppressive facilities even if government financial institutions like LandBank, cooperative and rural banks aim to assist them. Hazel Tanchuling of Rice Watch and Action Network in an interview in 2014 disclosed that about one percent of small farmers have access to these formal credit facilities, mainly due to their stringent documentary requirements.

PSA reported that prices of rice in April have risen by about 4.5% from January. The higher price of rice contributed to inflation bloating further. Aware of this pressing problem, President Duterte last April ordered private rice traders to help the government augment cheap rice supply in the market by selling rice by as low as P39 per kilogram.

Honestly, I don’t have any idea if there were traders who actually heeded the President’s call.

According to Celia Reyes, et. al. (2008) of CBMS Philippines, the impact of rising price of rice (and fuel) differs among various groups. Urban households are more affected by the price increases compared to those in the rural areas. The poorest households are the most vulnerable and the most adversely affected by increase in the price of rice. These households are coping by modifying their consumption patterns, increasing amount spent on food, and health or education would take the burden.

Sacrificing these two necessities would definitely have long-run effects on the households.

Rice is not just food; it is life. The problem on rice does not only denote the prospective nutrition and hunger problems that are experienced by Filipinos. It is a reflection of a deeper, systemic problem in our society nowadays.

Firstly, despite the natural resilience of Filipinos and the constant reminder of, “kapag maikli ang kumot, matutong mamaluktot.” I truly believe that this problem could have been avoided if the government officials were responsible enough to ensure food security in our country.

They had to wait until their warehouses are almost empty before they had to do something. This with the naiveté that all matters are in order. No shady deals and the like.

Secondly, our country is rich in natural and human resources. The Philippines is considered as an agricultural country yet we are the second largest importer of rice at present.

In the 1960s, our competency in rice production and research was recognized with the establishment of the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI). I believe we have a lot of potential in rice production. However, brain drain is happening. The best and the brightest scientists leave the country for greener pastures. If they were given enough incentive and competitive compensation, they would choose to stay and work towards sustainable rice self-sufficiency.

Thirdly, the poor farmers are left without support from the government, and are pushed to go to oppressive lenders. It is ironic that those who toil for our food are the ones experiencing hunger. Make agricultural credit accessible to those who need it the most.

I was able to prove in my master’s theses that agricultural credit has no impact on the agricultural output, where it should be one variable that could increase output exponentially. However, this support for the farmers has not been handled properly, e.g. Fertilizer Scam and Jocjoc Bolante, which until now the embezzlers have not yet been punished.

Support the farmers and this will ensure our self-sufficiency.

Finally, the impact of the rising price of rice may differ whether one is an urban or rural dweller, and the poorest households may be the most vulnerable, however, the fact is everyone is affected by this problem.

Due to these price increases, we are forced to forego of other important needs in order to suffice the need for food. Some may have foregone health when instead of buying medicines for a sick member of the household, rice was bought. Others have foregone education, children from the household dropped out of school because it was a choice of buying food or buying pencil or paper.

The long-run effects when these two are foregone are unimaginable. I am afraid that we will have a sick and illiterate society in the future if the government fails to install safety nets for this problem. It is about time for the people at the top of bureaucracy to focus on what is more important. Stop wasting government resources in addressing resultant problems. Drugs is a result of a more complex problem which is hunger, poverty. When the root of the problem is addressed, solutions to all other problems will follow.

Researchers Discover Genes That Make Plants Drought-Resistant

Taking inspiration from desert crops, researchers are one step closer to genetically enhancing crops to grow in water-limited conditions.
Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have identified a common set of genes that drought-resistant plants all use to survive in semi-arid conditions, paving the way for scientists to bioengineer drought-resistant crops.
ORNL senior staff scientist Xiaohan Yang, PhD, of the Biosciences Division, said that droughts are the largest major cause of crop loss globally.
“The loss caused by drought is much higher than the rest of the factors like disease or pests,” Yang said in an interview with R&D Magazine. “In general, it is the largest impact of environmental factors resulting in the loss of crops.”
Plants in deserts and other arid climates keep their stomata or pores closed during the day to conserve water. Then at night, they open the stomata to collect carbon dioxide in a form of photosynthesis called crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM).
Discovering the building blocks of CAM photosynthesis will enable the researchers to bioengineer the metabolic processes of water-heavy crops like rice, wheat, soybeans and poplar to accelerate their adaption to environments with limited supplies of water.
The ORNL team sequenced the genome of Kalanchoë fedtschenkoi, an emerging model for CAM genomics research due to its relatively small genome and amenability to genetic modification. The researchers then used ORNL’s Titan supercomputer to investigate and compare the genomes of K. fedtschenkoiPhalaenopsis equestris(orchid) and Ananas comosus (pineapple).
The researchers were able to identify 60 genes that exhibited convergent evolution in CAM species, including convergent daytime and nighttime gene expression changes in 54 genes and protein sequence convergence in six genes.
In particular, the team discovered a variant of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC), which is the enzyme responsible for the nighttime fixation of carbon dioxide into malic acid. Malic acid is then converted back to carbon dioxide for photosynthesis during the day.
Yang said they could introduce the natural convergent changes in gene expression and protein sequences into plants that rely on traditional photosynthesis. This would accelerate their evolution to become more water-use efficient.
Crop production is the world's largest consumer of freshwater. With the availability of clean water resources shrinking due to urbanization, human population growth and changes in climate, growing crops in less optimal environments is becoming increasingly important. According to ORNL research, rice and wheat are globally the biggest drivers of water scarcity among food commodities. Droughts also account for two-thirds of corn loss per year.
Engineering CAM photosynthesis into food and energy crops could—along with reducing the reliance on water—also boost the crops’ resiliency when the water is slightly saline or higher temperatures.
Yang said the researchers now plan to continue their research, which is the culmination of seven years of work.
“Now we are working on the next step, a deeper understanding of the gene functions and then how to use the genes for genetic improvements,” he said.


Mushrooms and rice could play a role in zero-carbon buildings


Cameron Jewell | 21 June 2018

It’s been a strong week for alternative materials here at The Fifth Estate. First there was the story that adding carrots to concrete could make it stronger and greener. Then there was the company making building panels out of hemp, with the promise to soon be 3D-printing hemp houses.
Now researchers, including some from RMIT and UNSW, have developed a low-energy, zero-carbon, fire-resistant building material from mushrooms and rice that could replace fossil-fuel-derived products and also tackle problem waste streams.
Fungal brick prototypes made from rice hulls and glass fines waste.
The Trametes versicolor fungus can be bound with agricultural and industrial wastes to form lightweight bricks. In research published in Fire and Materials, scientists used the fungus to bind rice hulls and glass fines (a problem waste stream), and baked the material to create lightweight, strong and fire-resistant bricks for use in non-weathering, non-structural and semi-structural construction applications.
The “mycelium composite” product proved a safer and “very economical” alternative to highly flammable petroleum and natural gas-derived synthetic polymers and unprotected engineered woods used in insulation, furniture and panelling, the researchers said.
Some of the composites tested were up to 31 times cheaper than extruded polystyrene and particleboard.
Regarding fire safety, the mushroom bricks had much lower average and peak heat release rates and longer time to flash-over. They also released significantly less smoke and CO2, though carbon monoxide levels fluctuated.
“Their widespread use in civil construction would enable better fire safety in buildings,” the researchers concluded.
Rice hulls, glass fines and the mixture of rice, glass and fungus, before baking
Thy also said their product was less appealing to termites.
On the sustainability side, as well as involving low amounts of energy to produce and having the potential to replace fossil-fuel-derived building products, the bricks also provide a home for two problem waste streams.
About 167 million tonnes of rice hulls are produced a year globally, considered a low-grade agricultural byproduct that is largely discarded as waste. Glass fines also account for 20-29 per cent of Australia’s 600,000 tonne a year glass waste. The bricks could prove an economical way to lock up these waste streams.

Botswana: Nhabe Has Potential to Grow Hybrid Rice

By Esther Mmolai
Maun — Maun Administration Authority senior assistance council secretary, Ms Mogomotsi Seemule says Nhabe region has the potential to be a site for growing hybrid rice.When giving feedback following a recent benchmarking trip to China, he said the hybrid rice project was once piloted in the district and investigations had indicated that it did not fail, but collapsed after being handed over to the community due to lack of commitment.
Some officials from North West District Council attended a conference co-hosted by the Human Provincial People's Government and the Chinese People's Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (CPAFFC).
The conference was held with the main purpose of strengthening China-Africa economic and trade cooperation and the CPAFFC invited the Botswana Association of Local Authorities.
BALA, therefore, extended the opportunity to its five members to the occasion, of which North West District was included.
She said following the bench marking trip, there was hope the council could re-group people and consider revitalising the project, which seemed viable.
She observed that there was potential for a research centre establishment on producing hybrid seeds in partnership with China, adding that they could also investigate the potential linking relationship with existing government seed research centre structures.
In addition, Ms Seemule said the region was at an advantage to have Okavango Research Institute and believed the institute would be interested to assist in conducting research.
She explained that the project was progressing well in China, adding that the country had indicated its intention to produce more rice to feed the whole world by 2050.
Currently, China is feeding half the world and the intention is to feed 60 per cent of the world in 2030 through the increase of rice yields.
Furthermore, Ms Seemule reported that China had expressed interest to partner with the district in trading of locally made products.
She said Ngamiland could take advantage to export its indigenous products such as Tswii, dried fish, weaved baskets and other products to the Chinese market.
If the partnership could see the green light, she said they would need to empower the communities to form cooperatives while the council establishes a central marketplace, which aimed to assist beneficiaries in packaging and marketing the products.
"We have the potential to export our indigenous products to the Chinese market through a partnership with the Changsha Agricultural logistic centre.
We can also establish an internet page to sell our products online," she added.
Ms Seemule said National Food Technology Research Centre had also opened doors to assist in the training of beneficiaries so that they produce quality products.
The centre has devoted its efforts to ensuring the availability of safe, quality and nutritious food to Batswana through a number of activities in the area of food quality, development and dissemination of food processing technologies as well as food and nutrition programmes.

Price of rice seen to drop with arrival of NFA rice

By Rosalie O. Abatayo and Futch Anthony InsoJune 22,2018

THE public may soon see a lowering of prices for commercial rice as the unloading of the first shipment of rice imported by the National Food Authority (NFA) from Vietnam has started.
Olma Marie Bayno, Information Officer of NFA-7, said the cargo agent of the supplier committed to work on the unloading operations 24 hours a day.
“[With the availability of NFA rice in the market soon,] we can really expect the price of commercial rice to lower. However, we cannot say that the drop of the prices will be that much,” Bayno said in a phone interview with Cebu Daily News.
If the weather permits, Bayno said the unloading will only take seven days instead of 15.
As of 5 p.m. on Friday, 8,500 bags were already unloaded and moved to the NFA warehouse.
Bayno said they are waiting for all the 200,000 bags of rice to be unloaded so that they can allocate how many bags would be for retailing.
“We need everything to be fully accounted first. That is why we need to wait until everything is unloaded,” said Bayno.
The second vessel containing 7,000 metric tons or 140,000 bags of imported rice which arrived in Cebu on Thursday dawn is still in waters off Kawit Island as of press time.
Bayno said the cargo agent of the vessel is still securing the necessary discharge permits from the Bureau of Customs.
Bayno said the docking of the vessel might also be delayed because of the lack of berthing space at the port, thus it is possible that it might have to wait until the first cargo ship finishes unloading the NFA rice.
Meanwhile, the Department of Agriculture in Central Visayas (DA-7) assured that the income of local farmers will not be impaired.
“Supply of NFA rice only serves as buffer stocks, especially during lean months, when we couldn’t expect any harvest of rice from our local farmers,” DA-7 information officer Cheryl dela Victoria said.
Dela Victoria also said that NFA plans to increase the buying price of rice from local farmers, in order to increase their income.
“As of the moment, NFA has set the buying price of rice at P17 per kilo,” she added.
She clarified that Central Visayas is not a rice yielding region, and only contributes 21 percent of the country’s production of rice.
“We are also continuing our “Bigasan ng Masa” program, wherein DA-7 imports rice from Bohol to sell it to consumers at very low price,” she said,
During this activity, special premium rice is sold at only P48 per kilo, P44 per kilo for well-milled rice, P38 per kilo for under-milled rice, P40 per kilo for brown rice and P70 per kilo for Black or pigmented rice.

The long term solution to rice problem

By
 

ONE VOICE
DUMAGUETE CITY – YEARS AGO, VIETNAMESE AND THAI scientists flocked to the IRRI (International Rice Research Institute) in Los Baños, Laguna to study rice varieties and their proper plantation and harvest.
Today, the Philippines- a so-called agricultural country – is one of the world’s biggest importer of rice for the 106 million Filipinos. Why, indeed?
The irony is not lost that today- the Philippines import most of our rice, precisely, from Vietnam and Thailand themselves.
We teach them how to plant rice so we can buy from them.
Are we just good in academics (IRRI) but bad in implementation- with everyone trying to do corrupt and inefficient ways of planting rice and placing it on the table of Juan de la Cruz?
Are we serious in -at least – making the country self-sufficient in rice and not necessarily dream of being exporters like those two other ASEAN countries?
Or are we self-flagellating ourselves with failure to produce sound, affordable rice so that in the face of such failure- set up the importation mechanism which reeks with the opportunities for graft through favoring and licensing of “friendly” rice importers?
Scarcity also affords avenues for smuggling -what with the porous beach network of 7,000 islands where vessels can just drop anchor with tax free rice from abroad?
In the face of all these- there is the NFA (National Food Authority) tasked to stabilize the supply and price of rice saddled with P 172-Billion in liabilities (mostly subsidies) -and rice supply at times neither stable or price -efficient, anyhow.
What are some long-term solutions to the festering problem?
We need to increase our irrigation facilities- gifted as the country is with massive falls, rivers, and streams. The reason Bohol is proudly called a “net exporter” of rice while the country is a net importer of rice is partly explained by the presence of massive irrigation systems-many of them during the regime of the late governor and congressman Rico Aumentado.
Then, there is the lack of post-harvest facilities that bedevil the poor farmers. Everyone and his uncle know that 17% of the value of rice is lost in this part of the production cycle. Palay is not milled immediately and there are not enough bodegas to house the palay and the grain.
We have no need for a rocket scientist to tell as to where Government should place its massive resources into instead of still practicing the discredited method of subsidies to “protect the people” from high prices of rice.
The Ramos government erased the subsidies of oil by simply deregulating the oil industry, The GMA Regime resisted the same discredited method by erasing any remnant of subsidy for electricity.
Alex Magno rightly argues that had those two governments not insisted on this rock-jawed economic policies- the government would have been perpetually saddled by enormous debt due to subsidies. That would have been a black mark for good fiscal management and delayed the recognition for upgraded credit and investment rating by powerful rating bodies of the nation.
That same policy should be the direction of the Duterte regime to cover the issue of rice.
There are other issues. This week 11 men of the Land Transportation Office based in Nueva Ecija were sacked on orders of the president. They were accused of exacting a “tong” of P1,000 per truck passing through the province carrying rice.
With 100 trucks passing through per day, the crooks net P100,000 a day or P3-M per month. Where do you think the victimized rice traders pass this extra cost of business- but to the consumer eventually? How many such “tong” rackets are continuing to plague the industry elsewhere in the archipelago?
Also, there is an enormous layer of middlemen before the product reaches the sari-sari store, groceries or the wet markets. From the farm -the product passes through the distributor, the wholesaler, the retailer before the consumer outlet. How much percentage points have the rice price risen going through this layering of middlemen?
Right now, the averaging buying price of palay is P17 by NFA and P22 by commercial traders. Where do you think would the farmers sell their produce?
There is also the issue of financing. Banks have been mandated to lend 25% of their total loans to agriculture yet they would rather pay billions in penalties rather than comply. Besides, most banks do not accept agricultural land as collateral- so where does that leave the farmers?
Yet – providing irrigation, post-harvest facilities, farm-to-market roads, warehouses, bagsakan— markets- from- the field – facilities should be the lookout of government and given priority. Why?
Because 106 million Filipinos eat rice as our staple food two or three times a day, it is more crucial than oil and electricity.
In all of these, the Department of Agriculture should provide the “comprehensive” roadmap to ensure we find the right solution to this rice imbroglio.
If local rice supply is still insufficient to feed the 106 million Filipinos, the government should allow free rein of entry of imported rice with uniform tariff instead of turning on and off the faucets for the supply which can lead to many temptations and aberrations.
The entry of the imported rice, however, must be such that it is not timed during the harvest season of the locally-produced varieties.
It does not take one to be a trained agriculturist or a sharp economist to identify these are the solutions to this bothersome problem.
In all likelihood, the rice success stories in Thailand and Vietnam probably took all or part of this route.
Why all these years the Philippine Government has not seriously adopted them can only be explained by the fact that under the existing system- pockets of corrupt opportunities abound for most dirty-minded people in and out of government.
It’s about time, draconian measures be taken by the government and let everyone concerned in the Rice Industry bite the bullet. It’s been a long time coming.
Let’s stop this confusion and reward the crooks by our failure to institute the reforms needed here.

Researchers Discover Genes That Make Plants Drought-Resistant

Thu, 06/21/2018 - 3:37pm

Taking inspiration from desert crops, researchers are one step closer to genetically enhancing crops to grow in water-limited conditions.
Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have identified a common set of genes that drought-resistant plants all use to survive in semi-arid conditions, paving the way for scientists to bioengineer drought-resistant crops.
ORNL senior staff scientist Xiaohan Yang, PhD, of the Biosciences Division, said that droughts are the largest major cause of crop loss globally.
“The loss caused by drought is much higher than the rest of the factors like disease or pests,” Yang said in an interview with R&D Magazine. “In general, it is the largest impact of environmental factors resulting in the loss of crops.”
Plants in deserts and other arid climates keep their stomata or pores closed during the day to conserve water. Then at night, they open the stomata to collect carbon dioxide in a form of photosynthesis called crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM).
Discovering the building blocks of CAM photosynthesis will enable the researchers to bioengineer the metabolic processes of water-heavy crops like rice, wheat, soybeans and poplar to accelerate their adaption to environments with limited supplies of water.
The ORNL team sequenced the genome of Kalanchoë fedtschenkoi, an emerging model for CAM genomics research due to its relatively small genome and amenability to genetic modification. The researchers then used ORNL’s Titan supercomputer to investigate and compare the genomes of K. fedtschenkoiPhalaenopsis equestris(orchid) and Ananas comosus (pineapple).
The researchers were able to identify 60 genes that exhibited convergent evolution in CAM species, including convergent daytime and nighttime gene expression changes in 54 genes and protein sequence convergence in six genes.
In particular, the team discovered a variant of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC), which is the enzyme responsible for the nighttime fixation of carbon dioxide into malic acid. Malic acid is then converted back to carbon dioxide for photosynthesis during the day.
Yang said they could introduce the natural convergent changes in gene expression and protein sequences into plants that rely on traditional photosynthesis. This would accelerate their evolution to become more water-use efficient.
Crop production is the world's largest consumer of freshwater. With the availability of clean water resources shrinking due to urbanization, human population growth and changes in climate, growing crops in less optimal environments is becoming increasingly important. According to ORNL research, rice and wheat are globally the biggest drivers of water scarcity among food commodities. Droughts also account for two-thirds of corn loss per year.
Engineering CAM photosynthesis into food and energy crops could—along with reducing the reliance on water—also boost the crops’ resiliency when the water is slightly saline or higher temperatures.
Yang said the researchers now plan to continue their research, which is the culmination of seven years of work.
“Now we are working on the next step, a deeper understanding of the gene functions and then how to use the genes for genetic improvements,” he said.
