Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol signed on Monday an administrative circular setting suggested retail prices (SRPs) on eight basic food items in Metro Manila. https://news.mb.com.ph/2018/06/25/pinol-signs-order-setting-srps-on-8-basic-food-items/
Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol inspects the rice for sale at a market in Pasay City Wednesday. Piñol said he is in favor of increasing the buying power of the National Food Authority to boost its stocks which are down to alarmingly low levels. (Ali Vicoy).
The DA will begin immediately the implementation of SRPs for the following commodities: regular milled rice (₧39 per kilo); medium to big-sized milkfish or bangus (₧150 per kilo); medium-sized tilapia (₧100 per kilo); medium-sized galunggong (₧140 per kilo); red onion (₧95 per kilo); white onion (₧75 per kilo); imported garlic (₧70 per kilo); and local garlic (₧120 per kilo).
Piñol said the prices of these commodities should not go beyond 10 percent of the SRPs as there will be sanctions against traders who would sell their products beyond the SRP.
The SRP for selected basic necessities and prime commodities was validated and set during a consultation meeting with private and public stakeholders last June 22.
Piñol said SRPs for basic commodities will also be implemented in other areas in the coming days to prevent a further surge in prices of basic goods due to the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Act.
Section 10 of Republic Act 7581 or the Price Act of 1992 provides that the head of the implementing agency may from time to time issue suggested reasonable retail prices for any or all basic necessities and prime commodities under his jurisdiction.
The Price Act was promulgated to ensure the availability of basic necessities and prime commodities at reasonable prices at all times.
More imported rice
Meanwhile, the market will soon be flooded by imported rice, the output for the country’s main staple is also seen to reach record levels this year, with bulk of the rice production expected over the next six months.
Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol said that for the second half of this year, rice output will reach “record levels” as typhoon allows rain-fed areas to replant.
“This year will be another record harvest for rice. Last quarter of the year will be the biggest ouput,” Piñol said.
In 2017, the country’s total rice output ended at a record level of 19.26 million metric tons (MT).
According to Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), the overall output for the country’s main staple will slightly improve in the first half of the year even if there would be a nearly 3 percent decline in palay production in the second quarter alone.
By the end of the first half, palay production may reach 8.67 million MT, 1.20 percent higher than the 8.57 million MT output in 2017.
Harvest area may also increase from 2.10 million hectares to 2.12 million hectares.
But yield per hectare may contract by 0.32 percent, from 4.09 MT per hectare in 2017 to 4.08 MT in 2018.
The contraction in harvest area is one of the reasons palay production will suffer a fall in the second quarter.
Last week, President Duterte spoiled Piñol’s rice self-sufficiency dream by saying the country will “never” be able to produce enough rice. Hence, the need to keep importing.
Piñol just shrugged this off and came up with a statement a few days later that the Philippines may actually still achieve the rice self-sufficient status in two years.
Right now, the DA is only targeting a production of 95 percent to 96 percent of the total national rice requirements to become rice self-sufficient.
The remaining 5 percent to 4 percent of the supply, according to Piñol, will be imported to comply with the Philippine commitments to the World Trade Organization. (With a report from Madelaine Miraflor)

Customs to deploy drones to tackle rice smuggling ON JUNE 26, 20184:04 AMIN BUSINESS0 COMMENTS Customs By EmmaUjah, Abuja Bureau Chief The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has said it will adopt high technology strategies, including deployment of drones in combating the smuggling of rice and other prohibited goods into the country. Deputy Comptroller-General (DIG) in charge of Investigations, Alh Aminu Dangaladima, disclosed this while launching a set of thirty patrol vans at the organisation’s headquarters in Abuja, yesterday. He added that the organization was also exploring a partnership with the Nigeria Air force, in the aerial anti-smuggling efforts. His words, “We are thinking of having drones and bringing in the Air Force.   We are also thinking of having unmanned aerial vehicles- these are drones and others that can assist us.   This will go a long way in assisting us to combat smuggling.   This is in progress.” Yesterday’s batch brought to the total number of the newly acquired patrol vans launched by customs to 50, within two weeks, having launched the first batch of 20 on the 11th  of this month. According to the DIG, with the fresh anti-smuggling push, “Nigeria Customs Service , today, is better poisoned to deal ruthlessly with the enemies of Nigeria’s security and economic prosperity. “With these vehicles, our response time at the scene of any smuggling activity will be swift and decisive.” He urged border communities to cooperate with the NCS by providing necessary intelligence with which to address the problem of smuggling. Speaking also at a press briefing in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Customs Area Controller of Ogun command, Controller, Michael Agbara identified  smuggling as the biggest threat to the Nigerian economy. He said: “the single biggest threat to our economy today is smuggling. I can tell you that the kind of smuggling we are faced with is not just local. I suspect regional and international conspiracy because if you look at the whole scenario, the Customs is implementing government fiscal policies 100 percent. We collect revenue on all trade, intercept and seize contraband items and even customs trade goods that violate trade regulations”. “Unfortunately, we have some dubious and criminal elements who like to cut corners through smuggling. For instance, our latest high profile seizure was a 2018 model Range Rover Sport Jeep valued at N68 million.   Why should somebody buy a vehicle worth that amount and prefer to smuggle it through the bush?”

Rice prices continue to soar

Delayed distribution of more affordable NFA rice partly causes unabated increase
Philippine Daily Inquirer / 05:14 AM June 26, 2018
Rice prices have continued to increase, due in part to the delayed distribution of imported cheap rice by the National Food Authority.
According to the Philippine Statistics Authority’s monitoring report on last week prices, regular-milled and well-milled rice are selling at P40.44 and P44.13 a kilo, respectively.
Compared to the same period last year, both have risen by 7.18 percent and 5.55 percent, respectively, said the PSA report released yesterday.
This was the 23rd straight week that rice prices have increased, according to the PSA.
In a phone interview, NFA spokesperson Rex Estoperez said retail prices of rice would likely continue to rise until there is enough cheap rice in the market.
The elevated prices of rice have contributed to the acceleration of inflation, which hit 4.5 percent year-on-year in April, the fastest pace in more than five years.
The NFA expects, however, rice prices to go down by at least P1 to P2 a kilo once the imported rice shipments are distributed nationwide.
Based on the NFA’s original time frame, rice imports should have been distributed across the country by now, in a bid to stem the unabated increase in rice prices.
The NFA said, however, that its distribution operations had been delayed by bad weather and port congestion issues.
The subsidized rice is expected to improve the plight of less affluent consumers who have been suffering from rising prices of basic commodities such as rice.
NFA rice variants are priced at just P27 to P32 a kilo, depending on the quality, and are consumed by some 10 million Filipinos.
Another 250,000 metric tons (MT) of rice are expected to arrive from Thailand and Vietnam by July and August in preparation for the country’s lean months.
The period usually runs from July to September when there is hardly any local harvest.

Redner's Partnership Yields Impressive Results, Boosts U.S.-Grown Rice Sales
By Cameron Jacobs

ARLINGTON, VA -- The numbers are in and USA Rice's spring partnership with the retail dietitians of Redner's supermarket chain to promote U.S.-grown rice across all their sixty four locations in Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania was a big success. 

Sales data from the promotion, which ran from March 25 through April 8, showed an increase of 34 percent in sales of Redner's brown long grain rice when compared to the non-promotion weekly average in 2017. 

The promotion launched in a Redner's weekly ad that featured USA Rice's Sesame Chicken and Wild Rice Spring Rolls recipe and included a sale on U.S.-grown brown rice.  The weekly ad was distributed in-stores and through the mail with a circulation of 1,200,000 people. 

The feature was also highlighted in the grocery chain's HealthCents Magazine with 10,000 copies spread among stores and on their website that included both U.S.-grown rice and Think Rice messaging, plus information on U.S.-grown rice varieties, nutrition, and cooking tips.  The three-week promotion garnered a whopping 1,210,000 impressions.

"These results are exactly what the Federation is looking for when partnering with retail chains," said Michael Klein, USA Rice vice president for domestic promotion.  "The combination of all the various promotional activities allows us to directly reach the consumer and expose them to USA Rice messaging while also increasing sales of U.S.-grown rice.  Redner's has proven to be a valuable retail partner that USA Rice can depend on for increasing awareness of U.S.-grown rice and impacting domestic sales."

Like most elusive marsh birds, American Bitterns prefer to be heard, not seen. But it was just the opposite for photographer Jim Morris last week, when he spied the pinstriped herons on a California rice farm before picking up on their distinctive booming calls.
Morris was driving through a field north of Sacramento, looking to snap ibises reported by a local farmer, when he spotted two short-legged birds strutting down a levee. After stopping the truck, he quietly pulled out his recording equipment and filmed the male as it lurched and gulped for its mate. The intimate encounter lasted for about 15 minutes, after which the pair blended back into the grass.
“This is the best time to see [American Bitterns],” Morris says. “They try to be invisible, but when the rice is just planted and is just a few inches tall, they’re not.”
As the communications manager for the California Rice Commission, Morris has spent 11 years scouting flooded farms in the Central Valley for wildlife. So, when he found the bitterns mid-display, he knew exactly what to expect next. Morris’s video shows the intricate details of the species’ breeding behavior: The male bittern puffs out its esophagus, snaps its beak, and jerks its neck back—all in one pop-and-lock motion. This produces a series of clicks, along with a unique glug glug sound, as if the bird is moving water instead of air through its vocal chords. The call might be bizarre, but it resonates well through dense reeds and grasses, where bitterns typically make their homes.
“A lot of wetland birds have deeper songs and calls,” says Auriel Fournier, a marsh-bird and wetland-ecology expert. “From what I understand, that’s often because those deeper sounds travel better through a very dense environment.” In contrast, a higher, more lyrical whistle from a songbird may get muffled in the thick ranks of plants.
But how does the bittern’s milk-jug effect work? James Chapin, former curator of birds at the American Museum of Natural History, looked into the question way back in 1922. By blowing air through a glass tube to inflate a dead specimen, he was able to take a closer look at the species’ neck and anatomy. Chapin concluded that like other birds, the bittern’s sound originates in its syrinx—the avian equivalent of a larynx. To then manipulate the noise, the male fills its esophagus with air and contracts its neck muscles in an abrupt, undulating motion, resulting in a series of thumping gulps.
Morris also caught the bittern displaying its shoulder feathers. Both males and females have these tufts, but they're usually tucked away until it comes time to breed or confront a rival. Photo: Jim Morris/California Rice Commission
The behavior is tougher to witness in the wild, unless you’re rooting around a rice farm like Morris. In the Central Valley, American Bitterns often nest on purposefully flooded fields instead of marshes. This ups the chances of studying them out in the open—an important opportunity, given the level of mystery around the birds.
In fact, bitterns are so secretive, it’s hard to know what exactly is happening with their populations, says Xerónimo Castañeda, conservation project associate for Audubon California’s Working Lands Program. The North American Breeding Bird survey estimates that American Bittern populations have been declining across the United States since the 1960s, likely in part due to habitat loss. That could be the case in California, where 90 percent of wetlands have disappeared under skyscrapers, sidewalks, and tractors.
Thankfully, rice farms have become a suitable stand-in for bitterns and other native wetland birds in the Central Valley. Almost all of the rice for U.S. sushi rolls is grown in the Golden State, says Paul Buttner, environmental manager for the California Rice Commission. The fields also provide crucial supplemental habitat for waterbirds migrating along the Pacific Flyway, he notes.
To these ends, for the past 10 years, Audubon California and the California Rice Commission have been working together on projects like the Water Bird Enhancement Program, which incentivizes rice farmers to prioritize the bird-friendly elements of their lands. This includes keeping fields wet before late-summer harvests and during the end of the winter, when growers traditionally flood the flats to break down leftover stalks. To date, the projects have covered 100,000 acres of farmland in the northern end of the Central Valley.
“The work we do with rice farmers to provide this surrogate wetland habitat is a really neat and cool opportunity to highlight how food production and wildlife conservation can work together to protect species,” Castañeda says.
And it's this farm-to-habitat conservation that also helped bring Morris’ bittern moment to life. The video might seem like a case of fortuitous footage, but the truth is, there’s a decade worth of scene-setting behind it.

Defaulting rice millers to get another chance to pay dues

Sanjeev Verma| TNN | Updated: Jun 26, 2018, 08:43 IST
CHANDIGARH: The Punjab government is coming up with another one-time settlement (OTS) scheme to recover the outstanding amount of Rs 2,074 crore from around 500 defaulting rice mills in the state. It is also going to finalize its custom milling policy by next month and would start state-wide distribution of wheat through fair price shops from July 2.
Though the Punjab council of ministers had on August 24, 2017, approved the one-time settlement scheme, the government could only recover around Rs 22 crore. According to the scheme, defaulting millers were asked to pay the outstanding principal amount in one installment within 45 days without any interest or pay the principal amount in three installments with 10% interest.

Anindita Mitra, director of the department of food, civil supplies and consumer affairs, said, "Since we could only recover around Rs 22 crore, we are again coming up with one-time settlement scheme by July end." Based on the previous scheme's response, the state government has considered suggestions from various defaulting rice millers and is trying to correct flaws so that the state does not suffer financial loss, said Mitra.

There are around 3,500 rice millers in Punjab. However, around 500 defaulting rice millers owe Rs 2,073.92 crore to five state procurement agencies. The outstanding amount includes, Rs 447.61 crore to Pungrain, Rs 593.05 crore to Punsup, Rs 444.57 crore to Markfed, Rs 303.73 crore to Punjab State Warehousing Corporation and Rs 284.96 crore to Punjab Agro Food Grains Corporation.

Rice millers had approached the Punjab and Haryana high court challenging clauses of the earlier custom milling policy, said Mitra, adding that the department had also taken advocate general's advice that new rice millers should not be stopped from applying for permission but at the same time, interests of existing rice millers should also be protected. She said the draft custom milling policy had been finalized and was under discussion with the department officials concerned.

Mitra said the department was also going to roll out state-wise wheat distribution from July 2 through 16,738 fair price shops under the smart ration card scheme. The distribution will continue till September. The state government has already started the trial wheat distribution at some places through ePoS (electronic point of sale) devices using biometrics installed at fair price shops.

Around 8.50 lakh tonnes of wheat would be distributed to around 1.39 crore beneficiaries across the state. All beneficiaries have now been linked through their Aadhar cards to the central government portal (NPIC) and the state government expects that number of total beneficiaries would decrease this time because of the ousting of fake beneficiaries, said Mitra.

Shot in the arm for TRS as rice millers join party

Ch Sushil Rao| TNN | Jun 26, 2018, 08:18 IST
IT and industries minister KT Rama Rao and Nizamabad MP Kalvakuntla Kavitha at Telangana Bhavan in Hyderabad on Monday.
HYDERABAD: The ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) got a shot in the arm when more than 2,000 rice millers from across the state joined the party at Telangana Bhavan on Monday in the presence of Nizamabad MP Kalvakuntla Kavitha and IT and industries minister KT Rama Rao who welcomed them. “CM KCR has guts. Only he could have taken up a gigantic project like Kaleshwaram,” she said, explaining how farmers would be benefited and farm production would go up.

While stating that they are joining the party without preconditions, the rice millers said it was because of the farmerfriendly approach of KCR that they were attracted to join TRS. “Considering that we are in touch with many people in everyday life, we have the ability to influence at least 10,000 voters in every constituency and we will support the TRS,” Telangana state rice millers’ association general secretary Vaddi Mohan Reddy said.

KTR said he would convene a meeting with the association representatives soon to discuss with them about the hurdles they are facing from the Centre. “We will bring the required changes to bring about a permanent solution,” he said.

Responding to TPCC chief Uttam Kumar Reddy’s claims that his party was ready for polls any time, KTR said that was a ‘routine dialogue’ from Congress. On Sunday, KCR had said he was willing to advance Assembly polls as the Congress was going to the extreme in its criticism of the government.

“Since the 2014 elections, the TRS has repeatedly proven that the people were in favour of the party. This was demonstrated in by-elections and even in the GHMC elections,” he said. The minister took a dig at Uttam who had vowed not to shave his beard until TRS is defeated in the elections. “No one cares whether he grows a beard or not. The only person who would probably be slightly bothered is his barber,” KTR said. The minister reiterated that the TRS would win more than 100 seats in the next Assembly elections.

SAU, Chinese academy sign MoU

HYDERABAD: Guangxi Academy of Agricultural Sciences (GXAAS) China and Sindh Agriculture University (SAU) Tandojam signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on Monday for research and development and information sharing in sugarcane, rice, and other food crops, specifically in the deltaic region.
The MoU aims to develop the agriculture sector by encouraging scientists, researchers, faculty members and students from both institutes to cope with the challenges of food security and impacts of climate change on crops in the region.
As per the MoU, experts from GXAAS would setup crop variety technological demonstration plot for germplasm development at SAU sub-campus Umerkot for development of dry land agriculture.
This memorandum sets out the terms and conditions under which GXAAS and SAU will join preparation and submission of international demand driven projects, exchange scientific information through capacity building programmes, and simultaneously initiate talented young scientist programme (TYSP).
SAU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Mujeeb-u-ddin Sahrai emphasised the importance of strengthening collaboration between China and Pakistan, which would support the knowledge-based economy of the region.
This, he said would ultimately be helpful for the development of the agriculture sector.
The VC said the university and its sub-campus Umerkot would engage the most suitable faculty, including various departments - entomology and biotechnology - to establish Science Technology Park for the development of dry land agriculture in the arid zones of Sindh.
Guangxi Academy of Agricultural Sciences Sugarcane Research Centre Director Yang-Rui Li said the MoU would support the scientists and researchers to conduct collaborative research for rice and sugarcane technology.
This MoU would help in fundamental research in biotechnology, crops variety demonstration and evaluation, germplasm exchange, training programme, scientific information exchange, reception of postdoctoral candidates from Pakistan, talented youth scientists programme, and split MSc MPhil and PhD programme.
Yang-Rui Li further expressed hope that this initiative would help develop long-term collaboration for joint research programmes for both countries through the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor programme.
Before signing the MoU, Prof Dr Jan Muhammad Marri, Director, Sindh Agriculture University Sub-Campus Umerkot welcomed the distinguished guests and highlighted the importance of the MoU for research and development.
University Advancement and Financial Assistance Director Prof Dr Muhammad Ismail Kumbhar said the MoU would benefit students in conducting research on genetic engineering, molecular marker technique and in vitro propagation and plant protection (pest and disease management).

PRICE SPIKES. To avoid abnormal price movements, the Department of Agriculture gives suggested retail prices for 8 agricultural products in Metro Manila markets. Shutterstock file photo
MANILA, Philippines – To avoid further abnormal movement of prices in local markets, the Department of Agriculture (DA) set a suggested retail price (SRP) scheme for 8 agricultural products on Monday, June 25.
Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol said the department order covers only Metro Manila markets. The SRP scheme will be rolled out to other regions in the coming days.
Piñol also clarified that the order does not cover supermarkets and malls.
Under the order, the SRP of regular milled rice was pegged at P39/kilo. Prices of regular milled rice had soared due to depleted National Food Authority (NFA) rice stocks. (READ: Rice prices soar as Duterte marks 2nd year in office)
Meanwhile, popular fish like milkfish (P150/kilo), tilapia (P100/kilo), and galunggong (P140/kilo) were also covered in the DA order.
Red onions and white onions have SRPs of P95/kilo and P75/kilo, respectively.
Imported garlic (P70/kilo) and local garlic (120/kilo) were also covered in the order

NFA-10 begins selling Vietnam rice in local market


CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The National Food Authority (NFA) Region 10 on Friday said the agency is now selling imported rice through their authorized retailers, following the arrival of close to a hundred thousand bags of rice from Vietnam last week.
NFA-10 information officer Hazel Belacho said the imported rice is now available and sold at P32 per kilo by accredited resellers at the Cogon public market.
Belacho said there they are still in the process of revalidating the passbooks of other NFA retailers and once this has been accomplished, the imported rice will be sold in all authorized resellers.
Belacho said 4,600 metric tons or 92,000 bags of long grain well-milled Vietnam rice arrived in the seaport of Cagayan de Oro on board MV Truong Loc. 16 on June 12. Unloading of the imported rice was completed early this week.
Belacho said the region’s initial imported rice allocation for this year is 280,000 bags which will be delivered to Northern Mindanao. Included in the delivery are the 40,000 bags intended for Marawi City.
Expected to arrive in the next few days are two more Vietnamese vessels, namely, MV Zircon V. 1806, containing 7,700 metric tons or 154,000 bags, and MV Hai Ha, carrying 3,700 metric tons or 74,000 bags.
The 320,000 bags for Northern Mindanao and Marawi form part of the 250,000 metric tons of imported rice purchased under the government-to-government procurement scheme for the whole country, which was awarded to Vietnam and Thailand, Belacho said.
As of Friday, June 22, all the 92,000 bags are now stored at the NFA warehouse in Baloy, Barangay Tablon, this city, and ready for distribution to the region’s five provinces, she said.
The second batch of imported rice, about 100,000 bags, will arrive sometime August to replenish the agency’s stock in time for the “lean” months where rice is scarce.
“We will have sufficient rice supply come June up to lean months because aside from the initial 250,000 MT NFA rice importation under G2G [government-to-government], there will be another 250 MT NFA imported rice under the open-tender procurement scheme that will arrive after the 1st tranche,” the NFA-10 said in a statement.
“To augment rice supply in the country, there are also rice stocks coming in from our private traders who are allowed to import under the minimum access volume (MAV),” it added.
Belacho said the NFA has reminded consumers that the rice they are selling through their authorized retailers are sold at P27 and P32 per kilo. She said overpricing of the NFA rice is an offense.
Per data from the NFA-10, the daily rice consumption in the region is about 28,920 bags, with Camiguin having the highest demand for rice among the Northern Mindanao provinces. ( Jigger Jerusalem/PNA)

Rice paddy price begins to rise ahead of impending tariffs

  Senior Correspondent  bdnews24.com

The price of rice paddy has begun to rise in anticipation of the tariffs to be reintroduced on rice imports in the government’s budget for the coming fiscal year.
The impact of the tariffs has yet to be felt in the rice market due to the relatively low trade after Eid and lower rice imports, but traders say rising paddy price may soon affect the price of rice.
According to the director general of the Food Directorate, sufficient food reserves have prompted the government to purchase rice from domestic sources instead of imports this season.
Finance Minister AMA Muhith had announced the reintroduction of the 28 percent tariff on rice imports in the prospective budget for the 2018-19 fiscal year after it was reduced following a poor harvest and flood damage in 2017.
Muhith said the tariff was aimed at protecting farmers and ensuring that they received a fair price.

“The government wants farmers to receive fair prices for rice paddy,” said Bangladesh Auto Major and Husking Mill Owners’ Association General Secretary KM Layek Ali.
“If that happens then rice prices could surely rise.”
The new tariffs are preventing rice imports and have raised the price of rice paddy by Tk 100-150 per maund, he said. 
“The government is aware of the coming elections and they understand the benefits to farmers and consumers of the situation. I do not wish to say more on the matter. We just buy paddy from farmers and sell rice.”
Kushtia Attara Rice Mill Owner Rezan Ali told bdnews24.com that the price of rice paddy had increased by approximately Tk 150 per maund.
“If the price of rice paddy rises, the rice of rice must also rice. At that rate, the price of rice may rise by Tk 1-2.”
In Kawran Bazar on Friday, the price of a 50kg sack of Nazirshail rice was Tk 2,800-3,000, that of Miniket was Tk 2,700-2,800 and that of BR-28 was Tk 2,100-2,200.
At some wholesale stores in Babubazar Nazirshail was selling for Tk 2,750-2900 per sack, Miniket was selling for Tk 2,600-2,750 per sack, BR-28 was selling for Tk 2,100-2,150 per sack and parboiled BR-29 for Tk 2,000-2,100 per sack. Traders say the prices were approximately the same around Eid.
Director General Md Arifur Rahman told bdnews24.com that the tariffs will only have a small effect on imports.

“The good news is that there is no shortage of domestic rice, so falling imports will have little effect. The price of rice paddy will rise a bit due to the tariff, so the price of rice will rise by Tk 1-2.”
Most domestic demand is for large-grained rice, said Rahman, saying that if the price rises then the government would institute an Open Market Sale for a targeted group if the price rose.
Food reserves this year are ‘quite good’ after the imports of 4 million tonnes of rice last year, he said. The food directorate chief said he does not foresee any major challenges in the coming five to six months and no real need for imports.
But, as tariffs rise, the price of Basmati and other fine-grained rice may rise as well, he said.
According to the Food Ministry’s Food Planning and Monitoring Unit, the government currently has 1,323,000 metric tonnes in food reserves.
Of these reserves approximately 1,066,000 tonnes are rice and 257,000 tonnes are wheat. An additional 52,000 tonnes of food grains are awaiting clearance at the ports.

As the Federal Government continues to express its ambition of ending rice importation into the country by the end of this year, stakeholders and observes insist that the rice self-sufficiency programme will be a mirage if the government fails to nip in the bud the massive smuggling of the cereal into the country through Nigeria’s borders with Benin Republic and the recent fraud uncovered in the Central Bank of Nigeria’s Anchor Borrowers Programme.

This came as indications are rife that Nigeria’s rice import will likely increase by 12 per cent in the 2018-19 season as demand for the cereal rises at a time of declining output due to higher cost and insecurity.

Reacting to the government’s optimism, the chairman rice farmers association in Kebbi, Mohammed Sahabi told Bloomberg on Wednesday that “we foresee a significant drop in rice production this year.”

According to the Managing Director of AgroNigeria, Richard Mbaram achieving self-sufficiency in the next couple of years is merely a “pipe dream”.

“Rice production isn’t willed into existence. It is cultivated and systematically sown.

“There is research, there is mechanisation, and there is warehousing and storage. There is market opening and market access.

“You cannot drive industrialisation or agro-industrialisation without connecting the farm gate where the production is happening. Do we have that? We’re very far back in terms of achieving that,” he said.

Similarly, Nigeria is expected to import more rice this year, to rise to 2.9 million metric tons from 2.6 million tonnes in 2017-18 imported last year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Reasons cited included conflict, population growth and more people giving up traditional coarse grains in their meals in favour of rice.

Experts say the forecast output drop is a setback for the government’s plan to stop rice imports by the end of this year to save foreign currency. Production had increased more than 50 per cent over the past five years to 3.7 million tonnes last year. Domestic demand rose 4 per cent to 6.7 million tonnes in the 2017-18 year that ended in May.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Chief Audu Ogbeh on Monday disclosed that the Federal Government will soon close down the nation’s land borders to stem the ugly tide of massive smuggling of foreign rice into the country through the nation’s ‘porous’ borders.
However, as government has always lamented of Nigeria’s ‘porous borders’, Sunday Telegraph reports that there is no indication that rice smuggling is done through approved routes.

Sunday Telegraph learnt that the poor handling of the Central Bank of Nigeria’s Anchor Borrowers Progamme (ABP), has given rise to a multitude of angry farmers who claim the programme has been hijacked by local politicians who disburse funds to alleged fake farmers and has become a means of dispensing political patronage.

While the ABP is dogged by a myriad of problems, along Nigeria’s border with Benin Republic, indications are that smuggling of Thai and Vietnamese rice is flourishing like never before.

It will be recalled that while launching the ABP in Birnin-Kebbi in November last year, President Muhammadu Buhari had said, “Economic diversification is no longer an option for us as a nation, it is the only way to reclaim the economic momentum and drive to prosperity.

“One way to do this is to go back to the land and develop our agricultural production. That is why I have high hopes about the prospect of the CBN’s Anchor Borrowers Programme and its potentials to create millions of jobs and lift thousands of smallholder farmers out of poverty,” he stated.

But contrary to President Buhari’s optimism, less than three years after, the programme, which has been described as revolutionary has run into troubled waters in several states, leaving a trail of bad loans running into several billions of naira, disappointments and accusation of diversion of funds.

According to the CBN, the programme thrust of the ABP is provision of farm inputs in kind and cash (for farm labour) to small holder farmers to boost production of these commodities, stabilise inputs supply to agro-processors and address the country’s negative balance of payments on food.

The programme, among other things, is expected to increase banks’ financing to the agriculture sector and create new generation of farmers as well as boast employment. Each farmer is given a loan of N250, 000 per hectare of rice for land cultivation plus inputs such as herbicide, fertilisers and water pumps.

At harvest, farmers are expected to sell their produce to anchor or off-takers; the anchor will then pay the cash equivalent of the pro duce into the farmers’ bank accounts. The programme, among other things is expected to increase banks’ financing to the agriculture sector as well as create new generation of farmers and also boast employment.

Premium Time in a recent report disclosed that the Bank of Agriculture, which disbursed the loans, admitted that farmers were yet to pay back about N60 billion disbursed loans that were due.

According to official Nigeria figures, rice importation from Thailand dropped from 1.23 million metric tonnes in 2014 to 23,192 matric tonnes as at November 2017. However, rice importation by neighbouring Benin from Thailand recorded an increase from 805,765 metric tonnes in 2015 to 1.6 metric tonnes as at November 2017, according to the Thai Rice Export Association website.

Most of the importation into Benin is believed to have been smuggled into Nigeria through unapproved routes along the nation’s land borders.

Lamenting over the negative impact of rice smuggling on the government’s rice policy, Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Abubakar Bagudu last week called on traditional rulers in the state to support his administration in its efforts to curb the influx of imported rice into the state and Nigerian at large.

He made the call while receiving the monarchs and other stakeholders who paid him Sallah Homage at the Government House, Birnin Kebbi, saying that it is the responsibility of the traditional rulers and stakeholders to educate their people on the implications of smuggling of rice into the country.

“You know that Kebbi State shares borders with Benin Republic and Niger Republic and still some people were found importing rice through Kebbi, please I want you people to help me and support my administration as we are known to be producing rice,” he said.

Also, the Federal Operations Unit, Zone A, Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), had last week raised the alarm that smuggling of rice through unapproved routes has been on the increase especially before the Sallah holiday.

Controller, Federal Operations Unit Zone ‘A’, Comptroller Muhammed Uba, who confirmed this while briefing journalists at the Customs warehouse in Ikeja, last week, said the increase is evident in the recent seizure of 15 trailer loads of rice intercepted by the unit within three weeks.

It in view of this that critics have disagreed with the Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh on his stance that Nigeria will become self-sufficient in rice production by the end of 2018, saying that there is poor spending on agriculture and under-investment in the entire value-chain for rice, from field to cooking pot.

Ninety two billion naira was appropriated for the sector in the 2018 budget, a paltry 1.26 per cent of the entire budget for the year.

It is against the backdrop that Sunday Telegraph reports that the hit-and-miss ABP and the blossoming rice smuggling business fly in the face of the government’s claim that Nigeria has turned the corner on rice importation and will attain self-sufficiency at the end of the year.

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.

Nepal, IRRI work toward rice sustainability, security

KATHMANDU, NEPAL — The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and the government of Nepal, through the Ministry of Agriculture, Land Management, and Cooperatives (MoALMC) signed a five-year collaborative work plan to reinvigorate Nepal’s rice sector and help achieve food and nutrition security.
The five-year work plan, signed by  Yubak Dhoj G.C., secretary of MoALMC, and by Matthew Morell, director general of IRRI, outlines projects specifically designed to increase grain yield, build technical skills and capabilities, and promote a more market-driven seed system for climate resilient rice varieties as a means to reduce Nepal’s rice imports.
“This work plan is fully aligned with Nepal government plans as we strive to double the rice productivity in next five years,” said Honourable Minister for MoALMC Chakrapani Khanal, chief guest of the event. “The themes and integrated projects set out in the work plan will directly contribute to achieving the targets set out by Nepal. Increased rice production means that the country no longer has to depend on imports, as it is consuming a significant portion of our national budget that could be allocated to other priority objectives.”
According to the IRRI, rice is Nepal’s most important staple food crop and agricultural product, providing 53% of cereal consumption and 30% of protein intake for 30 million Nepalese. It also contributes to 21% of the country’s Agricultural Gross Domestic Product (AGDP) and 7% to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and rural employment.
However, extreme climatic conditions and underutilization of rice science technologies and innovations have caused the country to become dependent on rice import. Based on the country’s recent macroeconomic report, Nepal’s import of rice has increased by more than 40% in the first trimester of fiscal year 2017-18, adversely affecting the country’s development budget, the IRRI noted.
“We believe there is a significant opportunity to work with the Nepalese government to improve the efficiency of the national rice sector and achieve their goal of increased productivity,” Morell said. “We are pleased to be able to leverage our strong portfolio of rice varietal research, agriculture innovations, and farming best practices to strengthen Nepal’s capacity to increase productivity and ultimately reach rice self-sufficiency.”
Set out in the work plan are strategies to: enhance the profitability of smallholder farms, with better and healthier rice varieties; promote rice production management for improved yield and climate resilience; scale appropriate, gender-friendly mechanization and post-harvest technologies in rice-based agri-food systems; reinforce product development, branding, and value chain development; strengthen capacity; and improve national rice policy environment and rice value chains.
“We are glad to be increasing our collaboration with IRRI,” Dhoj said. “We are confident that this fruitful partnership will help maximize our capacity to make full use of rice science technologies and innovations, leading the country to rice self-sufficiency. With IRRI being internationally recognized for excellence in rice science, Nepal foresees an opportunity of working together in this direction.”

What are the benefits of Louisiana’s Master Farmer program?

Louisiana's Master Farmer program kicked off “soon after the Clean Water Act of 1972 was enacted.
It’s been a little over a year since Ronnie Levy retired as the LSU AgCenter’s soybean specialist. What’s he up to now?
“I’ve moved into the Master Farmer coordinator position,” says Levy. “I retired after 38 years with the LSU AgCenter. The benefits-versus-retirement consideration tipped in the direction of stepping down. This gave me the opportunity to work with the Master Farmer program and allows me a transition from retirement to a part-time position rather than sitting home doing nothing most days.”
He is still living in south Louisiana’s Crowley and works from a nearby office at the LSU AgCenter Rice Research Station.

Master Farmer

The Master Farmer program kicked off “soon after the Clean Water Act of 1972 was enacted,” says Levy. “The program regulated point source pollution. At the time, our rice producers were releasing water from fields through drop pipes or cuts in the outer levee. There were concerns that they would be included in the permitting process of EPA and have to get water tested and a permit before water was being released from each field. You can imagine how popular that idea was.”
So, there was a lot of talk “about how Louisiana agriculture could reduce that impact and what producers could do proactively to address concerns of the Clean Water Act.
“Rice Growers, LSU AgCenter, NRCS, Louisiana Department of Agriculture, Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, Farm Bureau, and Cattlemen Association came up with the voluntary Master Farmer program where producers make use of classroom educational material and best management practices to reduce nutrient and sediment loss.”
The state legislature also passed a law in May 2003 that a certified Master Farmer would be considered in compliance of state soil and water quality standards.
The belief was “producers would show good faith in reducing agriculture’s footprint on the environment, according to state law. It’s worked. Since then, there have been numerous studies showing reductions in impaired streams — looking at nutrient, sediments, oxygen and the like — and all the areas of Louisiana continued to be checked.”


There are other benefits to sticking with the program, as well.
“Those who become Master Farmers are part of an elite group making environmental improvements. Producers develop a resource management system plan with NRCS to be in compliance. That plan identifies environmental concerns and develops a plan to reduce them under strict guidelines. After all concerns have been corrected, their plan receives approval.”
Some of the conservation funds, EQIP money, is actually put aside in a pool for Master Farmers, says Levy. “Those farmers also get preference points for their participation in the program. Those points give them a chance to have an edge in receiving funds to put conservation and environmental practices in place.”
How long does it typically take to go through the program?
“It depends. If they’ve got a situation where they’ve got land that is highly erodible or has other major environmental concern, it may take longer than farms that have already done major conservation improvements. So, it may take a few months or it could take several years to complete all three phases of the program.”


The program makes use of three “phases” of training.
Phase One involves classroom sessions that occur periodically throughout the year.
The Phase Two producers “attend field days and look at conservation practices — cover crops, soil health, nutrient requirements, all the things to help a producer reduce impacts on the environment. The field days are a benefit because they allow them to actually see how a simple practice like cover crops helps keep soil in place during winter. Or, how some cover crops can make some nutrients more available to subsequent crops in a rotation? Or, the benefits of reduced tillage.”
Phase Three is where producers “actually develop and implement the resource management system plan. That’s done, as mentioned before, with NRCS experts.
“Once they complete the program, they’re awarded certification from the Louisiana commissioner of agriculture. That certification is good for five years. Once Master Farmers, they’ll need to continue to go to educational meetings to get continuing education credits.
“To be recertified they’ll also need to update their resource management system plan. It is a lengthy process, but it’s worth doing. Our program has a lot of support and is a model for others to follow. Producers are looking to be good stewards of the land and the environment while reducing the calls for more regulations.”
Right now, there are 241 Master Farmers in Louisiana. There are also 3,781 in the process of finishing the program, says Levy.
“Folks are welcome to contact me about this. I’d love to discuss Louisiana’s Master Farmer Program.”
