The prices of rice went up in the city’s wholesale markets following the announcement of budget for the financial year of 2018-19 as the government reinstated 28 per cent import duty on the staple in the budget.
Following the announcement of the budget on June 7, importers and millers increased the wholesale prices of rice by Tk 1-2 a kilogram and the wholesale price increase started affecting the retail markets in the city, traders said.
‘Rice importers and mill owners have already raised the wholesale prices of all varieties of rice by Tk 1-2 a kg and they also squeezed the supply of the staple as the government imposed import duty on the item,’ Syed Monirul Islam, proprietor of Barishal Rice Agency at Mohammadpur Krishi Bazar, told New Age on Monday.
He said the importers increased the prices of rice, which were imported under duty facility before the announcement of the budget, in the name of import duty re-imposition.
Monirul said that the wholesale prices of rice increased before Eid-ul-Fitr, one of the biggest religious festivals of the Muslims, which was celebrated in the country on Saturday, and the price hike started affecting the retail markets in the city.
Last year, the government reduced the import duty on rice to 2 per cent from 28 per cent to meet the shortfall of the crops as flash floods damaged production of boro rice in the haor areas.
Considering the bumper rice production this year, finance minister AMA Muhith on June 7 reimposed 25 per cent customs duty and 3 per cent regulatory duty on rice import to protect the interest of the local farmers.
Following the re-imposition of duty, the prices of both the imported and locally produced rice went up in the wholesale market and in some cases retail prices also increased.
‘The government has imposed import duty aiming to increase the prices of rice and the decision has already started increasing the prices of all varieties of rice in the market,’ KM Layek Ali, general secretary of the Bangladesh Auto Major and Husking Mill Owners Association, said.
He said that following the imposition of duty on rice import, the prices of paddy started increasing in the market.
It is obvious that the prices of rice would increase as the prices of paddy increased by Tk 70 a mound (40 kg) in last one week, Layek Ali said.
According to Layek Ali, the wholesale prices of coarse, medium and fine varieties of rice increased by Tk 50-125 a bag (50 kg) in last one week.
A kilogram of coarse variety of rice was selling at Tk 42-45 a kg on Monday. The fine variety of Najirshail rice was retailing at Tk 65-70 a kg and its standard variety at Tk 60-64 a kg in the city markets.
BR-28 rice was retailing at Tk 50-52 a kg, while Miniket rice was selling at Tk 62-68 a kg. The coarse variety of Miniket rice was retailing at Tk 56-60 a kg.

Reeling under rabi blow, paddy ryots shying away from kharif

Bleak scenario: Left penniless and banks reluctant to issue crop loans, farmers are not in a position to raise crop .  

They suffered losses due to rain damage, ‘irregularities in procurement’

The absence of the minimum support price (MSP) for paddy during the last rabi season had its cascading effect on the transplantations during the current kharif season in the rice-rich East Godavari and West Godavari districts. Most of the farmers are looking for finances to meet the input costs, as it proved to be difficult for them to meet both the ends from the meagre sums they earned by selling their produce in the last crop season. As a result, paddy transplantation is moving at a snail’s pace in both the districts.

Paddy had been transplanted in about four lakh acres each in the East and West Godavari districts and the yield had been about 12.5 lakh metric tonnes and 12 lakh metric tonnes, respectively. The State government fixed the MSP at ₹1,192.5 for a 75kg bag of A-grade variety and ₹1,162.5 for the ‘Common’ variety, besides setting up paddy procurement centres to ensure that the prices were honoured.

“The untimely rain at the fag end of the rabi season had spoiled the paddy market. Branding the grain as ‘discoloured’ and less or more moist, millers and traders ruled the roost, whereas the officials remained mute spectators,” says M. Rajasekhar, secretary of the A.P. Koulu Rythula Sangham’s East Godavari district unit. “Till last year, paddy procurement centres used to remit the amounts against purchase of the grain directly into the bank accounts of farmers. Absence of the practice has paved the way for irregularities, including custom milling of paddy from neighbouring districts and States,” he alleges.

‘Official-miller nexus’

The same is the situation in West Godavari district, where the official statistics indicate procurement of nine lakh metric tonnes of paddy through procurement centres. “A thorough inquiry has to be ordered into the reported irregularities in paddy procurement. The nexus between paddy procurement centres and rice millers has resulted in a price drop. When it comes to farmers, lowering of prices has been forced by citing either abnormal moisture levels or colour of the grain,” points out K. Srinivas, secretary of the A.P. Pradesh Rythu Sangham’s West Godavari district unit.

“Even as the water release into the irrigation canals has been scheduled for June 1, it has taken about 10 days for the water to reach the tail-end areas. In the absence of cash in hand and reluctance of banks to release crop loans, small and marginal farmers are not in a position to go for paddy transplantation,” says K. Trinadha Reddy, YSRCP farmers’ leader.

Nigeria to shut down border with neighboring country to curb rice smuggling

June 19, 2018

Trailer loads of smuggled rice seized by Nigerian customs along Lagos-Badagry Expressway recently
By Nita Karume : 

The Federal Government of Nigeria has said that it will shut down its border with a neighboring country on account of rice smuggling. Audu Ogbeh, the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, said as much earlier on this week while speaking at a Guardians of the Nation International (GOTNI)-sponsored forum.

Mr Ogbeh, however, failed to mention the particular country and border. He further endorsed this move necessary in order to encourage local production and sustain the economy of the country. Among the countries Nigeria shares borders with are Niger, Chad, Benin and Cameroon.

The minister went on to explain the unprecedented risks that come with the consumption of said rice. According to him, rice planted in certain parts of the land could lead to poisoning of the same. Furthermore, some of the countries around the Delta there have been reports of arsenic found in the rice. This is in instances where rice is planted in the same place for six years consecutively.

Mr. Ogbeh also said that the Federal Government had in two years managed to reduce rice importation by 95%. This is while the number of rice farmers increased from five to 30m.

In 2014, the smuggling had taken a turn for the worst with rice traders and importers attributing the same of the tariff increase on imported rice by the Federal Government. As a result, some marketers in Lagos as well as the dealers resulted to smuggling of the product. Unfortunately, the high tariff placed on rice at the Nigerian port to discourage smuggling of the product has not been effective.

The President of Rice Millers and Importers Association noted that smuggling, while destroying the Nigerian economy, is boosting the economy of other developing countries. He is of the opinion that increased tariff will help increase patronage for locally produced rice in Nigeria.

Global rice shortage caused by El Nino threatens price crisis

The world is expected to suffer a major rice shortage after global production was hit by extreme weather patterns - potentially fuelling an international price crisis.

Hot weather and droughts brought on by the El Nino system continue to affect production in India, Pakistan, Thailand and Vietnam, where 60% of the world’s rice is grown.

Grain stocks in those countries are forecast to plummet to 19 million tons by the end of the year, down from a peak of 43 million tons in 2013.

Dr Samarendu Mohanty from the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) told The Independent: “There is no doubt that the supply situation is very tight, and this will inevitably cause a spiral in demand.

“The extent of this crisis all depends on what happens during the upcoming monsoon season. If it goes badly in India and Indonesia and the crops don’t get the rain, there could be real trouble ahead.”

The monsoon season in India lasts from July to September and supplies up to four-fifths of the country’s annual rain.

He continued: “At the moment it looks like the situation won’t be as serious as in 2008 but the countries affected must act more rationally this time rather than panicking, and they must learn from the mistakes of the past.”

El Nino is a major fluctuation in the Earth's climate system and see changes in the sea-surface temperature of the tropical Pacific Ocean every few years.

During the 2008 crisis in Asia, lower rice output caused by El Nino prompted India to impose a blanket ban on exports and prices hit a record $1,000 per ton worldwide.

The benchmark price for a ton of rice last month was $389.50, the strongest since July last year, and rates continue to increase.

Thailand’s last major crop haul was around half the peak production from 2013 and output is expected to fall to just 15.8 million tons this year.

Meanwhile, 593,000 acres of paddy fields have been destroyed by recent drought and salination in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta region.

The situation has not been helped by the one million wells built in the country since the 1960s, which have worsened the saline problem and contaminated the Vietnamese product.

The Phillippines is weighing up whether to import an extra 500,000 tons of rice this year in an effort to boost state reserve stocks in case of a future crisis.

Millers worry mounts as rice remains stocked

Slow evacuation of custom milled rice from the mills in Rayagada district has hampered the delivery process posing problems for the millers.

RAYAGADA: Slow evacuation of custom milled rice from the mills in Rayagada district has hampered the delivery process posing problems for the millers.Nearly 2.7 lakh quintals of milled rice is now stocked at Odisha State Warehousing Corporation godown in Rayagada town. Of this, 70,000 lakh quintals wait to be lifted by the Gajapati district as per the direction of Civil Supplies Minister Surya Narayan Patra.

The Minister, during his visit in March, had directed the evacuation of rice to Gajapati district and accordingly, an official instruction was issued by the department concerned. But, delay in implementation of the order has left the millers of Rayagada at their wit’s end.

With August 31 deadline set up by Odisha State Civil Supplies Corporation Ltd for delivery of custom milled rice (CMR) for Kharif Marketing Season (KMS) 2017-18 and with the date barely a month-and-a-half away, the millers are worried that if the rice is not lifted, the quality would deteriorate leading to losses.

During this KMS, the district has procured more paddy than the requirement under PDS and other schemes. To streamline timely realisation of custom milled rice from millers, the Government has been making plans from time to time. As per such a plan, 70,000 quintals of CMR is to be moved from Rayagada to Gajapati district to facilitate receipt of CMR within the deadline. But, things have failed to fall in place for the millers who fear that with the onset of monsoon, the rice in the godowns is likely to deteriorate and lead to reduction in purchase cost.

Meanwhile, Civil Supplies Officer Purosottam Lenka said lifting for Gajapati district started recently and all efforts are being made for timely realisation of CMR as per Government schedule.

U.S. Rice on China Retaliation List 

By Jesica Kincaid

 

ARLINGTON, VA -- The Trump administration announced on Friday an additional 25 percent import duty on $34 billion worth of high tech imports from China.  China immediately responded by announcing a similar duty hike on $34 billion worth of U.S. imports, including U.S. rice.  Both countries' actions are effective July 6, 2018.  The 25 percent duty on U.S. rice imports is consistent with China's approach to retaliate against a wide variety of agriculture imports including soybeans, corn, wheat, cotton, beef, cranberries, orange juice, tobacco, and whiskies.
  
In Friday's announcement, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) stated that higher duties on an additional $16 billion of imports from China are authorized, bringing the total value of trade affected to $50 billion.  China's release also contained pending duty increases on an additional $16 billion of U.S. imports.

According to USTR, "[Friday's] action comes after an exhaustive Section 301 investigation in which USTR found that China's acts, policies, and practices related to technology transfer, intellectual property, and innovation are unreasonable and discriminatory, and burden U.S. commerce."  Section 301 is a part of U.S. trade law that allows the President to take certain actions, including raising U.S. import duties, to counter unfair foreign trade practices. 

"The U.S. Sec. 301 investigation and the administration's action are unrelated to rice trade," said USA Rice COO Bob Cummings.  "We are disappointed in China's response and we will continue our decade-long press for access for U.S. rice in China.  At the same time, we encourage the U.S. and China to resolve differences on technology transfer and intellectual property so duties on both sides can be removed."

Rice Millers' Convention Focuses on Trade, Future of Retail, and Regulatory Impact  

By Jesica Kincaid

 

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WV -- The USA Rice Millers' Association (RMA) held its 119th Annual Convention at the historic Greenbrier Resort here last week.  Rice millers and allied industry participants heard from a variety of speakers on a wide range of topics including a workshop on the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), methods to minimize waste by converting rice hulls into higher value products, and a fast-paced, eye-opening presentation on the future of retail by USA Rice Domestic Promotion Committee Chairman Paul Galvani. 

Ambassador Gregg Doud, chief agriculture negotiator at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, spoke about critical trade topics including the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), retaliatory tariffs and market access for U.S. rice in China, the status of ongoing World Trade Organization (WTO) rice-related cases, and the outlook of the Trump Administration's trade agenda.

RMA continued the convention tradition of a breakfast presentation by a National Geographic photojournalist.  This year's speaker, Annie Griffiths, shared a variety of her photographs from around the world and promoted a message of global awareness.  She also mentioned witnessing the positive impact of food assistance programs, in which many RMA members participate. 

A highpoint of this year's convention was the awarding of RMA's Distinguished Service Award to two longtime members.  Bill Dore and Bob Watts, with decades of combined service to the industry, were honored at the conclusion of Friday's general session.  Dore is a third generation rice miller with deep ties to Louisiana rice milling and Watts served the industry at leadership positions in mills in Texas and California.   Both men served as past chairmen of the RMA.    

"Bill and Bob's achievements are a testament not only to their outstanding personal qualities but also to what makes the RMA great -- a collection of individuals building on over a century of service to the rice industry," said RMA Chairman Alex Balafoutis.  "We meet each year in business and fellowship to move the industry forward, and it's the association's integrity, vision, and collaborative spirit that keeps RMA going strong."

In her message, the senator stressed that with assistance to farmers in mechanization of farming, use of high yielding rice variety, and right training on farm management, “we can be rice-sufficient in three years.”

According to  the Senator, the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PRRI) has developed the high producing rice variety and is now being introduced to farmers.

"If we use that variety of rice that can produce six metric tons per hectare, then we can increase rice production by 50 percent. Or even with only 20 percent increase, we can be rice-sufficient,” she said.

Simultaneously, the weeklong Agro-Industrial Fair was also opened on the same date at the Dapitan City Aqua-Marine Park (DAMPA).

City Agriculturist Cyril Patangan said the activity showcases the different agricultural products of the city in the various booths. There will also be nightly presentations.

Ambassador Tariq Iqbal hoped that the visit of President Mamnoon Hussain, on the invitation of Tajik President, will further strengthen the already existing close and friendly relations between the two brotherly nations.

To a question, he said, the water conference was first of the series that Tajikistan planned to hold on a bi-annual basis to facilitate implementation of the New Decade for Water for Sustainable Development.

The ambassador said that the official visit of President Mamnoon Hussain to Tajikistan as well as recent visits of Pakistani prime minister were reflective of the country''s vision to strengthen relations with neighbouring and regional countries and further regional connectivity.

Good prospect is forecast in the export of several agricultural products, including rice, in the rest of the year.

 Font Size:     |  

NDO/VNA – Good prospect is forecast in the export of several agricultural products, including rice, in the rest of the year as demand in importing markets has shown optimistic signs, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD).

The ministry predicted that domestic rice prices will continue to stay high until the end of June 2018, buoyed by hope for resuming exports to the Philippines.

According to a report by the General Department of Vietnam Customs, in the first five months of 2018, rice shipments overseas rose 25.7% in volume and 42.6% in value, with prices picking up 13.4% over the same period last year.

Statistics showed that 452,000 tonnes of rice were shipped abroad in May for US$347 million, pushing the five-month rice export volume to 2.66 million tonnes with value of US$1.45 billion. China was still the biggest market of Vietnamese rice.

Vietnamese rice quality has gradually approached international standards, prompted by the shift in world demand for rice of higher quality. According to the MARD, importing countries now prioritise the import of fragrant and Japonica rice varieties. Currently, African countries are also increasing rice imports, creating opportunities for Vietnamese firms in the markets.

Meanwhile, exports of aquatic products in May fetched US$700 million, raising total value in the first five months of 2018 to US$3.1 billion, up 11% over the same period last year.

Particularly, export volume of tra fish in May was estimated at 104,000 tonnes, a year on year rise of 11.6%, marking a record growth rate in many years.

The US, Japan, China and the Republic of Korea were the top markets of Vietnamese aquatic products, which consumed over 50% of total exported volume.

High growth was seen in many markets, including the Netherlands (60%), China (27%), the UK (27%), Germany (26%), and the Republic of Korea (21%).

At the same time, chicken meat is also among products with high hope for growth in latter half of the year. Since the beginning of 2018, export volume of the product expanded three times compared to that in 2017.

As per a new study in London, the excessive use of refined carbohydrates—especially white pasta and rice, may lead to an earlier menopause by a year and a half earlier.

The findings were published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, according to which high intake of healthy foods like oily fish, green beans, fresh legumes and peas are the commodities associated with a later onset of menopause.

The study lead author—Yashvee Dunneram—a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Leeds—Britain said that there are several factors that are taken into consideration for developing the relationship between age and the start of menopause, including the generic factors or behavioural and environmental exposure. However, a limited study has been done that looks at the impact of diet on menopause.

The study used the data gathered from fourteen thousand one hundred and fifty women, residing in Britain. They were asked to fill a detailed diet questionnaire along with an initial survey which was done to collect information on the reproductive health and history.

Later after four years when a follow-up survey and questionnaire was done, the researchers were able to analyse the diets of the women who have experienced the onset of natural menopause in the interim. The average age of the women of Britain for menopause is 51 years.

More than nine hundred women were found to have experienced the natural start of their menopause at the time of the follow up survey, their ages ranging in between 40 and 65, which means that they must have menstruated for at least twelve months consecutively and menopause had not been brought on by factors like surgery, or cancer or pharmaceutical treatments.

Their diet analysis revealed high intake of oily fish which are liked to a delayed start of menopause by almost three years. A diet full of refined pasta and rice displayed that menopause was more probably to occur one-and-a-half years before than the average age.

As per the BBC reports the new study is observational and cannot prove any factor, the researchers, however, have some possible explanations behind their findings.

For example, legumes contain antioxidants which could preserve menstruation for a longer span of time. Similarly, omega-3 fatty acids which are found in the oily fish also leads to stimulating the capacity of antioxidants in the body.

As per the report, the increased use of refined carbs could also raise the risk of insulin resistance, which could hinder with the sex hormone activity and increase the oestrogen levels which might lead to an increase in the number of menstrual cycles causing the supply of eggs to finish faster

Gene banks to ensure supply, survival of Cordillera's heirloom rice

322SHARES28711

Artemio Dumlao (philstar.com) - June 17, 2018 - 11:24am

BAGUIO CITY, Philippines — Seeds of the highland region's famed centuries-old heirloom rice are being kept in storage to ensure that they will not be wiped out.

Through the Heirloom Rice Project, a collaboration among the Department of Agriculture, International Rice Research Institute and Philippine Rice Research Institute, the seeds will be stored in a black box to keep them safe for between 25 to 40 years.
 
Currently, 69 heirloom rice landraces — particular strains that have evolved and have been cultivated over time — from Benguet, Ifugao, Mountain Province and Kalinga are kept in separate genebanks maintained by IRRI and PhilRice.

An additional 126 inherited races will be included this year from the project's expansion barangays, bringing the number of samples to 195.

PhilRice said the threat of losing these valuable materials such as the heirloom rice makes conservation efforts increasingly more urgent and important.

The project also discovered through community consultations that some landraces that are no longer being planted while others are on the verge of extinction.

"The rice we ate, which was planted by our forefathers, are long gone and have been replaced," Rosa Dungawan, 73, said. She said she regrets that even though she had the opportunity to taste the heirloom rice, her grandchildren did not.

Agriculturist May Ann Tuba-ang said that in case of unforeseen events that endanger the current landraces, the community can retrieve the seeds from IRRI and PhilRice for reproduction.

Aside from the conservation of heirloom rice, the project also aims to preserve the rice through increased production to encourage farmers to continue producing the rice passed down by their ancestors.

Popular rice variety gets extra gene power to fight bacterial attacks

Pyramiding of multiple BB-resistant genes into rice varieties.

By

Description: rice, mealImage: Pixabay

Rice is considered essential for millions of Asians because of the immense influence on their culture, diets and economic condition and is the most important and dominant staple food crop in Asia. Approximately 92% of rice is grown and consumed in Asia, which encompasses 55% of the world population.

Now, scientists at the Hyderabad-based Indian Institute of Rice Research have developed a new variety of the popular Improved Samba Mahsuri (ISM) rice that can resist bacterial blight (BB) disease. BB caused by Xanthomonas oryzae PV. oryzae (Xoo) remains a primary production constraint in rice in India and in most of the east and southeast Asian countries.

This disease primarily occurs in epidemic proportions in monsoon (wet) season, particularly in irrigated and rain-fed lowland ecosystems. The disease affects rice crop, is caused by bacteria, Xanthomonas oryzae, and drastically reduces rice productivity.

Dr Gouri Sankar Laha, co-author of the study said, “Till now about 41 resistant genes have been identified from diverse sources. These genes differ from each other in their mode of action. While some are broad spectrum, others are narrow in their resistance spectrum.”

Using Marker-assisted Backcross Breeding or MABB technique, scientists succeeded in gene insertion in genetically modified crops efficiently.

Xanthomonas is virulent, meaning its infection spreads fast and wide. It also evolves very quickly. Thus plants that seem to be resistant now might turn susceptible later as the pathogen evolves into different strains.

Dr Laha said, “The new breed has been field tested in farms across several states and has been exposed to various strains of Xanthomonas. We have done three backcrossing and six generations of improvement. It has taken five years including a selection of parents and initial crossing.”

“The effort has resulted in several improved lines of ISM with a novel, broad-spectrum blight-resistant gene Xa38 that show high levels of blight resistance to different types of Xanthomonas. These plants are better both in yield and in other traits than their ISM parent lines. After more field tests in different parts of the country, it will be ready for commercial release.”

Other co-authors include Arra Yugander, Raman M. Sundaram, Kuldeep Singh, Duraisamy Ladhalakshmi, Lella V. Subba Rao, Maganti Sheshu Madhav, Jyothi Badri and Madamsetty Srinivas Prasad. Their study is published in the journal PLOS One.

Laput)

 

DAPITAN CITY, Zamboanga del Norte--Senator Cynthia Villar on Saturday said that the Philippines could be rice sufficient by 2020, but added that "it all depends on us if we will solve our problems” within that timetable.

“If we help our farmers in mechanization of farming; if we have them use high yielding rice variety; if we teach them how to manage their farms; yes, I believe we can be rice sufficient in three years,” Villar said at a press conference here.

Villar, chairperson of the Senate’s Committee on Agriculture, was guest of honor on Saturday in the opening of Dapitan's second “Balanghoy (Cassava) Festival” that will culminate with this city's 55th Charter Day celebration on June 22.

Villar explained that the country remains short of rice supply, but only by about seven percent.

"If we use that variety of rice that can produce six metric tons per hectare, then we can increase rice production by 50 percent. Or even with only 20 percent increase, we can be rice sufficient,” she said.

The senator said that the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PRRI) has developed the high producing rice variety and is now being introduced to farmers.

“We have traditionally been using the variety of rice that produces only four metric tons per hectare,” Villar said.

She also lamented that agriculture contributes only about 10 percent of our gross domestic product as of now.

“And there's a prediction by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization that there will be food shortage in the world by 2050, or 32 years from now. That is because the world population will be nine billion by that time from the present seven billion,” Villar said.

She added that the world has to increase food production by 70 percent, “that is why we have to take care of our agriculture. You Dapitanons and the rest of the people in the province should not forget it.”

As the average age of farmers has gone down to 57, Villar asked the academe to attract the young back to agriculture.

Praising Dapitanons for giving emphasis to cassava, this city's most popular produce, Villar asked the farmer and Zamboanga del Norte residents to give importance to agriculture because two thirds of Filipinos depend on it.

She said a third of our population are farmers while the other third are in agriculture-related businesses.

“You know, agriculture is also business. We should not think of agriculture as planting alone, our schools should also teach farm management. Our farmers should learn to borrow from banks, not from 5-6 (or loan sharks),” she said. (PNA)

How much longer do we have to wait?

Published June 16, 2018, 10:00 PM

By Dr. Emil Q. Javier

Vitamin A deficiency (VAD) continues to be a major public health concern worldwide. It is estimated that 250,000–300,000 vitamin A-deficient children become blind every year, with half of them dying within a year after getting blind.

Here at home, not only are we not making progress, the problem is getting worse. VAD incidence among children increased from 15.2% in 2008 to 20.4% in 2013. According to the UNICEF study on the Economic Burden of Malnutrition in the Philippines (2016), there are 1,840 childhood deaths per year due to VAD.

Clearly our current programs to eliminate VAD by promoting production and consumption of vitamin A-rich fruits and vegetables, distribution of vitamin A capsule supplements and mandatory vitamin A fortification of vegetable cooking oil are not enough.

Another complementary way to increase vitamin A intake is by biofortification of foods vulnerable populations regularly consume. This is accomplished by enriching the beta carotene (pro-vitamin A) content of foods by conventional plant breeding and/or by use of modern transgenic methods (GMOs).

We eat a lot of rice but the rice endosperm is devoid of beta carotene. Unfortunately, there are no landraces nor related rice species which carry the genes for beta carotene in the grains. The recourse is to transfer the beta carotene genes from other species which do not normally interbreed with rice. After years of effort, scientists have succeeded in transferring such genes, first from the golden daffodil, and then later, from yellow corn.

Scientists at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) have incorporated these beta carotene genes from yellow corn into our popular varieties (baptized as Golden Rice). And now Golden Rice is ready for formal assessment for food and feed safety, for bio-efficacy, and finally for field testing in farmers’ fields. Applications are now pending since last year with the Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI) of the Department of Agriculture (DA).

In the meantime, Golden Rice has passed the assessments of three other national regulatory agencies for food and feed safety, namely by the Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ), Health Canada, and the US Food and Drug Administration (US-FDA).

Following are the exact quotes from the assessments of Golden Rice by these national regulatory bodies:

FSANZ:… “No potential public health and safety concerns have been identified in the assessment of GR2E (technical code for Golden Rice). On the basis of the data provided in the present Application, and other available information, food derived for GR2E is considered to be safe for human consumption as food derived from conventional rice varieties.”

Health Canada: “Changes made in this rice variety did not pose a greater risk to human health than rice varieties currently available in the Canadian market,… Further, GR2E would have no impact on allergies, and that there were no differences in the nutritional value of GR2E compared to other traditional rice varieties available for consumption except for increased levels of provitamin A.”

US-FDA: Concurred with the assessment of IRRI and declared that: “Based on the safety and nutritional assessment IRRI has conducted, it is our understanding that IRRI concludes that human and animal food from GR2E rice is not materially different in composition, safety, or other relevant parameters from rice-derived food currently on the market except for the intended beta carotene change in GR2E rice… We have no further questions concerning human or animal food derived from GR2E rice at this time.”

Needless to say, these competent national regulatory agencies of Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United States, are as concerned with the safety of their citizens as all other national bodies. They conduct their assessments based on concepts and principles developed over more than two decades by international organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the Food and Agriculture Organizations (FAO) of the United Nations, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC). What further assurances do we need!

We raised a furor over the alleged wrongful deaths from the mis-application of the Sanofi Dengvaxia vaccine against dengue (in the order of perhaps, less than a hundred). Should not we be even more concerned with the 1,840 needless deaths every year of poor Filipino children from vitamin A deficiency? How much longer do we have to wait until Golden Rice is made available as an economic, sustainable option to eliminate vitamin A deficiency?

 UP singing ambassadors

— proudly filipino

Last Wednesday, I had the fortune of attending one of the four farewell concerts “The Reason We Sing” of the UP Singing Ambassadors (UPSA) at the Ayala Museum together with former UP Regent Nelia Teodoro Gonzalez.

I was so moved by their musicality, harmony, choreography, and over-all stage presence so much so that when I was singled out in the crowd and asked to extemporaneously say a few words, all I could say was “You make us proud.”

Indeed as a collection of music-minded students from different colleges in UP Diliman, first organized by conductor Ed Lumbera Manguiat as a freshman choir at the Kalayaan Residence Hall, UPSA has gone a long way and conquered the world, figuratively.

Since then, UPSA has toured Europe and parts of the world many times; competed in 21 international choral competitions, and in the process garnered five grand prizes and 23 first prizes, bringing honor and fame to the country and to the University of the Philippines.

Among their Grand prizes were 1) 4th International Choir Festival. Sopot, Poland (May 2008); 2) Festival Choral International de Neuchatel. Neuchatel, Switzerland (August 2008); 3) 3rd International Choir Competition of Sacred Musi., Prague, Czech Republic (July 2005), and 4) 4th Concorso Polifonico “Guido d’Arezzo.” Arezzo, Italy (2001).

Locally, UPSA has excelled well. UPSA received the “Ani ng Dangal” award by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) “for achieving the highest levels of artistic excellence and bringing honor to the country,” in 2009 and 2012. UPSA was also adjudged Best Chorale Group at the annual ALIW AWARDS in 2002, 2010 and 2011, and had been elevated to the Aliw Hall of Fame.

UPSA’s amiable conductor, Dr. Ed Lumbera Manguiat, honoris causa, has the distinction of being the first Asian conductor to win the Grand Prize of the prestigious Concorso Polifonico choral competition in Arezzo, Italy, in 2001. He likewise was awarded the Conductor’s Award (Dirigentenpreis) at the second JOHANNES BRAHMS International Choir Competition in Germany in 2001. And the Special Prize for Excellent Conducting Performance at the BELA BARTOK International Choral Competition in Debrecen, Hungary in 2012.

You have to hear and see them to believe, and be proud of them as Filipinos. UPSA has two remaining concerts before they leave for their coming European tour to Berlin, Germany; Torrevieja, Spain; Florence, Italy and Arezzo, Italy. You can watch them at the UP Bahay ng Alumni in UP Diliman campus this Sunday, June 17 at 5 p.m. And on June 18 at the UP Film center at 6:30 p.m. Ticket prices range from P300 to P1,000. Students get 50% discount; seniors, the usual 20%.

Rise in Rice Imports

Close to 178,000 tons of rice worth more than $183.5 million were imported into Iran during the first two months of the current Iranian year (March 21-May 21), registering a 22.1% and 9.1% decline in weight and value respectively compared with the similar period of last year.

 

 

Figures released by the Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration also showed that this amount of rice purchases accounted for 3.4% and 2.7% of the volume and value of Iran’s total imports over the period respectively, Mehr News Agency reported. 

Iranians consume 3.2 million tons of the grain every year while domestic production stands at 2.2 million tons.

      DA wants to overhaul rice packaging

217

SHARES

Published June 16, 2018, 10:00 PM

By Madelaine B. Miraflor

A policy that will completely change the way rice is being sold in the Philippines is now in the offing. This means that soon rice can no longer be bought in sacks but in specific per kilo packages.

For the sake of food safety and traceability, Agriculture Emmanuel Piñol said he is now pushing for an overhaul in rice packaging system in the Philippines — which will do away with the traditional way of selling different variety of rice by having them exposed in open containers with their price tags on it. This has always been the practice in every wet market in the country.

This move will be formalized by a policy that the Department of Agriculture (DA) is going to draft.

“This will not be implemented right away. But we will go towards this direction in the context of food safety and traceability,” Piñol said.

In ensuring food safety, Piñol said the current system now, which allows everyone to easily touch the rice, is not hygienic, while his per kilo packaging proposal will help consumers identify where their rice was produced, who produced it, and when it was milled.

As for the additional cost this will entail consumers, Piñol shrugged this off, saying it will only add about R1 in the overall retail cost of rice.

If ever, this proposal by Piñol will complement the move of Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-PCAARRD) to develop green packaging technology using eco-friendly materials for rice and other commodities.

The project is intended to design an environment-friendly process protocol in developing packaging materials for specialty rice and other food commodities.

On Wednesday, Piñol said the government is already at the tailend of its computations on how much Suggested Retail Price (SRP) to impose on basic food commodities like rice, fish, and vegetables.

It forms part of the government’s effort to address the rising prices of basic crops, which is being blamed to the Tax Reform Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law — the first tax reform to be implemented in the Philippines in many years.

Popular rice variety gets extra gene power to fight bacterial attacks

Pyramiding of multiple BB-resistant genes into rice varieties.

By

Description: rice, mealImage: Pixabay

Rice is considered essential for millions of Asians because of the immense influence on their culture, diets and economic condition and is the most important and dominant staple food crop in Asia. Approximately 92% of rice is grown and consumed in Asia, which encompasses 55% of the world population.

Now, scientists at the Hyderabad-based Indian Institute of Rice Research have developed a new variety of the popular Improved Samba Mahsuri (ISM) rice that can resist bacterial blight (BB) disease. BB caused by Xanthomonas oryzae PV. oryzae (Xoo) remains a primary production constraint in rice in India and in most of the east and southeast Asian countries.

This disease primarily occurs in epidemic proportions in monsoon (wet) season, particularly in irrigated and rain-fed lowland ecosystems. The disease affects rice crop, is caused by bacteria, Xanthomonas oryzae, and drastically reduces rice productivity.

Dr Gouri Sankar Laha, co-author of the study said, “Till now about 41 resistant genes have been identified from diverse sources. These genes differ from each other in their mode of action. While some are broad spectrum, others are narrow in their resistance spectrum.”

Using Marker-assisted Backcross Breeding or MABB technique, scientists succeeded in gene insertion in genetically modified crops efficiently.

Xanthomonas is virulent, meaning its infection spreads fast and wide. It also evolves very quickly. Thus plants that seem to be resistant now might turn susceptible later as the pathogen evolves into different strains.

Dr Laha said, “The new breed has been field tested in farms across several states and has been exposed to various strains of Xanthomonas. We have done three backcrossing and six generations of improvement. It has taken five years including a selection of parents and initial crossing.”

“The effort has resulted in several improved lines of ISM with a novel, broad-spectrum blight-resistant gene Xa38 that show high levels of blight resistance to different types of Xanthomonas. These plants are better both in yield and in other traits than their ISM parent lines. After more field tests in different parts of the country, it will be ready for commercial release.”

Other co-authors include Arra Yugander, Raman M. Sundaram, Kuldeep Singh, Duraisamy Ladhalakshmi, Lella V. Subba Rao, Maganti Sheshu Madhav, Jyothi Badri and Madamsetty Srinivas Prasad. Their study is published in the journal PLOS One.

Eat this common food to lower type 2 diabetes risk, study says

Looking for a way to lower your blood glucose levels? One plant may be able to help, according to a new report.

» RELATED: This common legume can help lower your blood pressure, study says

Researchers from the University of Guelph in Canada recently conducted a small study, published in the Journal of Nutrition, to determine the association between lentils, a type of pulse, and reduced blood glucose levels. High blood glucose levels can lead to Type 2 diabetes. 

To do so, they examined 24 healthy adults, who were fed four dishes: white rice only, half white rice and half large green lentils, half white rice and half small green lentils, and half white rice and half split red lentils.

The analysts measured the subjects’ blood glucose levels before they ate and two hours afterward. They then repeated the same experiment this time using white potatoes alone and the same combination of potatoes and lentils.

“We mixed the lentils in with the potatoes and rice because people don’t typically eat pulses on their own, but rather consume them in combination with other starches as part of a larger meal, so we wanted the results to reflect that,” coauthor Alison Duncan said in a statement.

» RELATED: at this meat twice a week to avoid heart attacks and strokes

After analyzing the results, they found that replacing half a serving of rice with lentils caused blood glucose to drop by up to 20 percent. Replacing potatoes with lentils resulted in a 35 percent decrease. 

They explained that pulses, such as lentils, can encourage the production of short-chain fatty acids and slow digestion and the release of sugars into the bloodstream, which can lower blood glucose levels.

“This slower absorption means you don’t experience a spike in glucose,” Duncan said. “Having high levels over a period of time can lead to mismanagement of blood glucose, which is the hallmark of Type 2 diabetes. Essentially, eating lentils can lower that risk.”

The scientists now plan to further their investigations and collaborate with more health experts to explore the benefits of lentils. 

“We are hoping,” Duncan said, “that building evidence for approval of a health claim for pulses will further encourage people to add pulses to their side dishes.”

Pakistan. Rice exports up by 30pc to $1.58b in 10 months

15.06.2018

 

UkrAgroConsult

Pakistan has come out of the crisis of low exports, which was observed during the last three years, as the rice exports have increased by around 30 percent to $1.58 billion during the first 10 months of the current fiscal year (2017-18) as exporters pushed fresh cargoes to Indonesia, Kenya and other markets. Description: http://www.blackseagrain.net/foto/grain-cereals/rice.png/image_large

Rice Exporters Association of Pakistan chairman Samee Ullah Ch said that value of rice export trade has been showing improvement due to the coordination of REAP members with the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan and customs. “Our members are putting in untiring efforts, and aggressive marketing to increase rice exports and to earn valuable foreign exchange,” he added. He said rice exporters are making investments to install modern rice processing machinery and using value-addition technology.

He said the association is sending trade delegations to various countries for rice marketing. “Last month our delegation came back after a successful visit to Iran, which is very lucrative and a potential market for basmati rice. Around 100,000 tons of rice has so far been exported to Iran during the current season.” He hoped that a handsome amount of foreign exchange would be fetched by Pakistani rice exporters. He said that rice exports amounted to $1.23 billion during the corresponding period last year.

Samee Ullah Ch said exports increased 15 percent to 3.23 million tons during the 10 months of the current fiscal year of 2017/18. He said exports of non-basmati rice to Indonesia increased during the period.

New paddy variety bursts onto East Godavari Agency scene

DRR Dhan 44, developed by Indian Institute of Rice Research, has come out with flying colours in field trials

A new paddy variety introduced on a trial basis in eight Agency villages of Vara Ramachandrapuram mandal in East Godavari district holds promise for farmers of the region.

DRR Dhan 44, developed by the Indian Institute of Rice Research (IIRR), has fared better than MTU 1001, a common variety in this area. In addition to yielding four bags more than other varieties, Dhan 44 has withstood well the long dry spells. ICRISAT is giving 50 % input subsidy to identified farmers.

Consortium approach

The consortium approach has evoked a good response with tribal farmers coming forward to cultivate new varieties of paddy, pulses and other crops.

This project has been taken up under Rythu Kosam in Andhra Pradesh (AP Primary Sector Mission) and trials were conducted by ICRISAT under the guidance of the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) located on its campus in Hyderabad with the help of the Andhra Pradesh Agriculture Department, the IIRR, and ASDS, an NGO.

Cooking quality of this variety has also been found good like basmati. This variety yields more under minimal fertilizer application making it most suitable for the Agency area where farmers don’t buy much fertilizer. This year, more farmers have came forward to take part in participatory demonstrations. IRRI senior scientist A. Narayana Rao said with the confidence gained from the VR Puram demonstrations, the approach will be tried out in Gangavaram and Y Ramavaram mandals in the East Godavari Agency area.

Spreading the word

Interacting with the farmers of Gangavaram and Yarlagadda villages, he highlighted the success stories of DRR Dhan 44 and other varieties in VR Puram mandal. About 20 farmers, four groups, five members in each group came forward to participate in the demonstration during kharif 2018 with DRR Dhan 44, KNM 118, RNR 15048 and DRR Dhan 46 along with other crops such as sorghum, ragi, and groundnut which are being upscaled in these mandals for the last two years. Rajesh Nune, visiting scientist, ICRISAT, said there was a possibility of growing green manure and chickpea during the rabi season if cattle were constrained to non-crop areas for grazing. He suggested setting up of ‘community groups’ to prevent cattle from entering fields

Protein-packed and rich in fibre, researchers have found another reason to eat lentils

They’re high in fibre, full of complex carbohydrates and 25 per cent protein. As a pantry staple, they’re inexpensive and versatile. And new research out of the University of Guelph has found yet another compelling reason to eat lentils: they can significantly lower blood sugar levels.

In a study published in the Journal of Nutrition, researchers discovered that making a simple swap in familiar starchy side dishes could have profound effects. Substituting half a serving of rice with lentils resulted in a 20 per cent drop in blood glucose, while the same substitution with potatoes showed a 35 per cent decrease.

“Pulses are extremely nutrient-dense food that have the potential to reduce chronic diseases associated with mismanaged glucose levels,” said Prof. Alison Duncan of the Department of Human Health and Nutritional Sciences, explaining that they can decelerate digestion and help stabilize sugars in the bloodstream.

“This slower absorption means you don’t experience a spike in glucose. Having high levels over a period of time can lead to mismanagement of blood glucose, which is the hallmark of Type 2 diabetes. Essentially, eating lentils can lower that risk.”

The study looked at the blood glucose readings of 24 healthy adults after eating four dishes: “white rice only, half white rice and half large green lentils, half white rice and half small green lentils, and half white rice and half split red lentils.”

Researchers took blood glucose readings before the participants ate, and then again two hours afterwards. They then repeated the process with white potatoes, using the same combination of lentils as with the rice.

The legumes were mixed in with the starches to better reflect how people tend to eat them, the researchers said, and the results were similar for each of the three types of lentils.

“Canada has a huge production of lentils, but we export most of it and only 13 per cent of Canadians eat them on any given day,” Duncan said. “We are hoping this research will make people more aware of the health benefits of eating pulses.”

A study by University of Guelph researchers is pointing to the health benefits of eating lentils and other pulses.

Professor Alison Duncan of the Department of Human Health and Nutritional Sciences says Canada has a huge production of lentils, but most are exported and only about 13 per cent of Canadians eat them.

Duncan says pulses are extremely nutrient-dense foods that have the potential to reduce chronic diseases associated with mismanaged glucose levels.

The study, published in the Journal of Nutrition, shows that replacing potatoes or rice with pulses can lower blood glucose levels by more than 20 per cent.

The study involved 24 healthy adults fed four dishes, including white rice only and combinations of rice and various lentils.

DA mulls over rice packaging system

By: Karl R. Ocampo - @inquirerdotnet

Philippine Daily Inquirer / 05:35 AM June 16, 2018

The country’s agriculture chief is looking at the possibility of requiring standard rice packaging in markets as the agency reviews food safety practices in the rice retail industry.

If implemented, rice will no longer be sold in open stalls, a practice that Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol described as “unhygienic.”

“We’re looking at marketing rice in packages of one, two, and five kilos. This is also to ensure that there would be traceability for the protection of consumers,” said Piñol in an interview.

“If you go to public markets anybody can touch the rice … And wouldn’t it be nice when you go to the market and you don’t have to worry if you’re being cheated with the scale since everything is already packaged?” he added.

The secretary said the planned policy would be implemented in phases, and may start after the imposition next week of suggested retail prices of various basic commodities.

While the new policy may entail additional costs to retailers, Piñol said it was a small price to pay in the name of food safety.

Piñol said the policy could be crafted under the Food Safety Law.

The new policy will complement plans to “properly classify” rice varieties.

The thorough review of the rice retail industry comes at a time when the country is set to transition to a “rice tariff regime,” under which the government will remove its import quota on rice and instead slap an additional tariff.

This will open the country to more rice imports and is seen to benefit consumers as retail prices of rice are expected to fall by P4 to P7 a kilo, according to the government’s economic managers.

State to provide training to farmers in Malda for aromatic rice cultivation  Pradip Chatterjee |  15 Jun 2018 10:53 PM Kolkata: State agriculture department has decided to impart training to the farmers of Malda district, where the department is planning to produce Tulaipanji and other aromatic rice in large scale. A team of research wing at Uttar Banga Krishi Vishwavidyalaya will soon visit Malda district not only to carry out a detailed survey but also to encourage the farmers to cultivate Tulaipanji and other scented rice. The step is a part of the overall initiative of the state Agriculture department to increase the production of aromatic rice. The research wing of Uttar Banga Krishi Vishwavidyalaya will identify the places where these rice could be grown on a large scale. They will encourage the farmers into new ventures and training would be given to them. The department will provide seeds to the farmers in the district at a cheaper rate so that more number of farmers show their interest. The state government will extend all possible benefits to the farmers to make the attempt a success, sources in the department said. Agriculture department will carry out a detailed study, examine the nature of the land where Tulaipamji and other aromatic rice could be grown in North Bengal. State agriculture minister recently held a high-level meeting with the researchers of Uttar Banga Krishi Vishwavidyalaya and other senior officials of the department, chalking out an elaborate plan on how to increase the production of aromatic rice. It may be mentioned here that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee during her recent visit to the North Bengal, asked the senior government officials to take necessary steps so that Tulaipanji, Gobindobhog and other aromatic rice can be produced on a large scale. The main purpose of the move is to ensure that the people get these rice at a lesser price. Proded by the Chief Minister, the agriculture department is also leaving no stone unturned to make it possible. It may be mentioned here that state Agriculture department has already been taking help from the research fellows of Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya and Uttar Banga Krishi Vishwavidyalaya who will provide assistance to the department in this regard. The main purpose is to increase the production of fragrant rice in the state. Asish Banerjee, state Agriculture minister said his department has set a target to increase the production of various aromatic rice including Tulaipanji and Gobindabhog in various districts. A research wing of Uttar Banga Krishi Vishwavidyalaya has chosen Malda district where Tulaipanji could be grown on a large scale. A team will soon visit the district to identify the areas.

Why lentils may be the next big superfood

Scientists have discovered some surprisingly awesome side-effects to eating lentils.

When you think of the word 'superfood,' I bet lentils are one thing that do not come to mind right away. Some interesting new science from the University of Guelph, however, could skyrocket this humble little legume to the status of dietary darling. Lentils are astoundingly effective at lowering blood glucose levels, researchers have discovered. When carbohydrates such as rice and potatoes are swapped out for lentils, it can lower blood glucose by up to 35 percent.

In the study, which is the first of its kind, 24 adult participants were given four dishes to eat -- one with plain rice, half white rice and half large green lentils, half white rice and small green lentils, and half white rice with small red lentils. Researchers measured blood glucose levels prior to eating and two hours after. The process was repeated with two more dishes -- white potatoes alone and half white potatoes with lentils.

Study author Allison Duncan, professor at the Department of Human Health and Nutrition, said,

"We mixed the lentils in with the potatoes and rice because people don't typically eat pulses on their own, but rather consume them in combination with other starches as part of a larger meal, so we wanted the results to reflect that."

The rice-and-lentil combinations saw in a 20 percent drop in blood glucose levels, while replacing potatoes with lentils led to a 35 percent decrease. This is a valuable discovery because it could help many people who struggle with chronic diseases that are associated with mismanaged glucose levels, not to mention improving the overall health of the general population.

"Pulses, such as lentils, can slow digestion and the release of sugars found in starch into the bloodstream, ultimately reducing blood glucose levels, said Duncan. "This slower absorption means you don't experience a spike in glucose. Having high levels over a period of time can lead to mismanagement of blood glucose, which is the hallmark of Type 2 diabetes. Essentially, eating lentils can lower that risk."

The University of Guelph is located in Canada, which grows 65 percent of the world's lentils, the vast majority of which come from the province of Saskatchewan. Despite this, only 13 percent of Canadians eat lentils on any given day; unfortunately they are far from being the dietary staple here that they are in India and the Middle East.

The researchers hope that this study will boost culinary interest in lentils, and that Health Canada will pay attention: "We are hoping that building evidence for approval of a health claim for pulses will further encourage people to add pulses to their side dishes."

(Bloomberg) -- Nigeria, the world’s third-biggest rice importer, will likely receive 12 percent more of the grain from foreign sources in the 2018-19 season as demand spikes at a time of declining output due to higher costs and insecurity, an industry body said.

“We foresee a significant drop in rice production this year,” Mohammed Sahabi, chairman of the rice farmers’ association in Kebbi, a state that’s one of the country’s top three producers of the grain, said by phone from the local capital, Birnin Kebbi.

The amount of land allocated to rice in the Kebbi area has likely fallen by half this year from the 200,000 hectares (494,200 acres) cultivated in 2017, he said. Other major producing states such as Kogi and Ebonyi are dealing with an increasing number of clashes between nomadic herders and farmers, which keep planters from tilling their land.

Internally Displaced

Nigeria’s rice imports are set to increase to 2.9 million metric tons in the 2018-19 season from 2.6 million tons in 2017-18, 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 favor of rice. Nigeria is Africa’s most-populous nation with almost 200 million inhabitants.

The forecast output-drop is a setback for government plans to stop rice imports by the end of this year to save foreign currency. Production had increased more than 50 percent over the past five years to 3.7 million tons last year. Domestic demand rose 4 percent to 6.7 million tons in the 2017-18 year that ended in May.

President Muhammadu Buhari, 75, is seeking to diversify Nigeria’s oil-dependent economy by boosting agriculture, especially rice production. Elected in 2015, he has overseen investments of almost $1 billion in rice farming and milling, virtually banned importers of the grain from buying foreign exchange, raised tariffs and pushed the central bank to lend to farmers. At the same time, rice smuggling through neighboring Benin and Niger has soared over the past years.

Muse 105th mile trade zone in Myanmar-China border.

 

Chinese merchants have suspended its rice imports from China-Myanmar border after a freeze on bank accounts of merchants, said Than Oo, secretary of Bayintnaung Rice Brokerage Center.

“Rice prices remain unchanged as China has suspended rice imports from Myanmar. Rice prices will go up when there are high demands from China. Rice trading is not working well as China makes a crackdown on contrabands,” he added.

China has frozen bank accounts of traders in China-Myanmar border very often. Remittance services have suspended since June 12 as there are some problems with money transfer, according to merchants in Muse border.

Khin Maung Lwin, assistant permanent secretary of Commerce Ministry said: “Commerce Ministry will sign a MoU with Yunnan province government to officially export rice, sugar, maize and other agro products to China in June.

Under the MoU, Myanmar will import farm equipment, electronics, steel and steel products which are equivalent to export volumes, from China.

Myanmar’s rice exports via border area declined in April and May as China reduced its Minimum Support Rice (MSP), according to Lu Maw Myint Maung, joint general-secretary of Myanmar Rice Federation.

Myanmar exported more than 70 per cent of rice via border trade and the rest via marine trade.

NFA rice may end up with rice traders again’

 0

BY JEFFERSON ANTIPORDA, TMT ON JUNE 15, 2018NATION

Twitter

OPPOSITION Sen. Paolo Benigno Aquino 4th on Friday expressed concern about the possibility of the imported rice procured by the National Food Authority (NFA) ending up in the hands of rice traders again, leaving the buffer stock of the grains agency depleted.

Aquino raised such possibility since the corruption allegation surrounding NFA Administrator Jason Aquino has not been acted upon by Malacañang.

“The government should look into allegations against Aquino rather than entrust him with the task of importing thousands of metric tons of rice,” the opposition senator said.

The NFA administrator was blamed for the depletion of NFA buffer stock early this year, which led to the sudden spike on the prices of commercial rice in the market.


“It was his blunder that caused the rice price increase and added to the burden of Filipino families,” Sen. Aqiuno pointed out.

The initial shipments of the 250,000 metric tons of imported rice approved by the NFA council last February arrived in the country early this month in Subic and Surigao.

The 16,000 tons of rice were distributed in provinces surrounding Subic and Surigao to stabilize rice prices in the area. The supply for Metro Manila and other regions in the country are expected to arrive in succeeding trenches.

“What happened to the allegations against the NFA leadership? Now the imported rice has started to arrive, we should make sure that things would not happen again wherein the NFA rice and its buffer stock would just end up in hands of rice traders,” Aquino added.

During a Senate hearing on the rice issue, the NFA admitted it failed to comply with the required 15-day buffer stock since last year because of natural and man-made calamities experienced by the country in 2017, including the five-month Marawi siege.

The NFA head claimed that the agency anticipated the rice shortage and submitted a request for rice importation as early as October 2017 to the NFA Council, but its request to import 250,000 metric tons (MT) of rice in January was denied due to the stable price in commercial rice and the good local rice production forecast.

But some resource persons who attended the hearing alleged that while the NFA is only allowed to sell rice to retailers, the agency allowed its stocks to be sold to favored rice traders through dummy rice retailers.

Allegations were also made that the NFA rice was illegally sold to traders who then re-bagged and sold it as commercial rice at P42 to P45, or about 55 to 66 percent higher than the NFA selling price of P27 to P32.

Mayor Teresa Alegado of Cebu during the hearing noted that the practice was so blatant that traders were selling the NFA rice without even bothering to re-bag this.

Rice watchdog Bantay Bigas also pointed out that smugglers are taking advantage of the entry of the rice imported by the NFA fromVietnam and Thailand as it coincides with the scheduled arrival of the rice imports.

“Rice importation only breeds rice smuggling,” Bantay Bigas spokesperson Cathy Estavillo said in reaction to the interception Thursday of shipment of 100,000 sacks of Thailand rice worth P187 million by the Bureau of Customs (BoC) at the Manila International Container Port (MICP).

Based on BoC’s assessment, the shipments came from Vietnam and consigned to Sta. Rosa Farm Products Corporation.

The current rice importation policy is causing the increasing number of smuggling cases in the country as it only gives opportunity for illegal rice imports from private traders to enter the Philippines, Bantay Bigas said.

Experience tells us that rice importation permits sold to private traders were used to create an opportunity for illegally imported rice to enter the country,” Estavillo said.

According to her, the proposed rice tariffication would even worsen rice smuggling as the government welcomes any private trader who can afford to import rice.

Despite the NFA controversies President Rodrigo Duterte has retained Aquino as NFA head but returned the agency under the control of the Department of Agriculture.

The president also ordered the removal of the powers of NFA Council chairman and Cabinet Secretary Leoncio Evasco Jr., a move which Sen. Aquino said was unnecessary and leaves the NFA even more prone to corruption and impunity.

Evasco was pushing for a government-to-private mode of procurement to make the process more transparent while Aquino wanted a government-to-government mode, which is prone to corruption.

Anheuser-Busch Joins Forces with USA Rice to Strengthen American Rice Industry  

By Josh Hankins

 

JONESBORO, AR -- Anheuser-Busch and USA Rice are proud to announce a major new investment in water efficiency, rice-land preservation, and wildlife protection through the Rice Stewardship Partnership. 

Rice is one of the four natural ingredients in many Anheuser-Busch great-tasting beers ever since Adolphus Busch first added it to Budweiser to set the brew apart from other lagers.  

An investment in the Rice Stewardship Partnership will bring the nation's leading brewer - and largest end user of American rice - together with growers, environmental groups, and government agencies to strengthen the U.S. rice-growing industry through innovation, knowledge-sharing, and supporting sustainable and efficient practices. 

Anheuser-Busch's investment will help fund strategies to protect working ricelands, including conservation planning, irrigation efficiencies, nutrient management, and education of decision-makers on water, agriculture, and wildlife habitats.  The Partnership will also help improve air quality, conserve energy, and support rice growers' bottom line by testing new irrigation strategies. 

These efforts will help advance Anheuser-Busch's 2025 Sustainability Goals announced earlier this year, which include connecting 100 percent of their direct farmers to new technology and empowering them to try new agricultural practices, as well as engaging 100 percent of their facilities in water efficiency efforts. 

"From seed to sip, every step of our brewing process is focused on responsible and sustainable water stewardship and smart agricultural practices," said Jess Newman, Anheuser-Busch's director of U.S. agronomy.  "The last ten years have seen us reduce water usage in our facilities by 38 percent and we are excited to keep moving in this positive direction." 

"USA Rice's partnership with Ducks Unlimited and with great members like Anheuser-Busch has enabled us to provide much-needed financial and technical support to conservation minded rice farmers who are working to continuously improve their operations and hopefully see a positive return on their investments in both future profits and achieving their sustainability goals," said USA Rice President & CEO Betsy Ward.

Anheuser-Busch's 15 agricultural facilities across the country include a rice facility in Jonesboro, Arkansas - a proud part of the $4 billion Arkansas rice industry.  Most of the rice milled at the Jonesboro facility is sourced within a 30-minute drive from local farming families, and by-products are used as inputs in the feed industry, providing a key element for cattle feed. 

To celebrate and thank the Arkansas rice-growing community, Anheuser-Busch hosted a Grower Appreciation Dinner for their local growers last night.  The event included presentations from senior leadership and local industry members. 

"We're thrilled that this new Rice Stewardship Partnership will enable us to play an even stronger role supporting the Arkansas rice industry," said Bill Jones, rice agronomy manager at the Arkansas rice mill.  "At Anheuser-Busch, we're constantly looking for ways to build a more sustainable industry and even stronger local growing communities."

 

Rice exports to decline by 10% on restrictions from importing countries

Bangladesh imposes 18% import duty, EU introduces stringent quality norms; a part of decline to compensate through export to China

After a bumpy ride last year, India's rice exports are likely to decline this year by up to 10 per cent this year due to restrictions imposed by importing countries.

While Bangladesh has imposed 28 per cent import duty on rice to restrict its exports largely from India, the European Union also made its quality norms stringent with introduction of new pesticides limit. With this, non-basmati rice export to Bangladesh and basmati rice shipment to the European Union is set to decline.

The restrictions from importing countries assume significance as Bangladesh contributes over 18 per cent India's 8.5 million tonnes of non-basmati rice exports, the European Union shares nearly 10 per cent of India's basmati rice exports annually. A part of this decline, however, is likely to offset with the beginning of direct import from China, possibly in the second half of the current financial year.

"Overall rice exports from India are set to decline this year due to stringent quality norms introduced by the European Union. For immediate future, therefore, India may lose its entire 400,000 tonnes of European Union markets in the immediate term. The scenario, however, would improve with growers to reduce pesticides use in basmati rice in the long term. Also, Indian exporters would lose the entire Bangladesh market in the immediate term,” said Gurnam Arora, Joint Managing Director, Kohinoor Foods, one of India’s largest basmati rice exporters which sells its aromatic rice under Kohinoor brand.

Data compiled by the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (Apeda) showed a bumpy ride of both basmati and non-basmati rice exports during the last financial year. India emerged as a large supplier of rice to the South East Asian (SEA) countries due to a devastating flood in this region last year.

Consequently, India's both non-basmati rice exports jumped by a staggering 28 per cent to 8.65 million tonnes for the financial year 2017-18 compared to 6.77 million tonnes in the previous financial year. India’s basmati rice exports, however, stagnated at around 4 million tonnes in three years.

In value terms, however, non-basmati rice exports from India jumped by a staggering 41 per cent to $3564.39 million for FY17-18 versus $2531.47 million in the previous financial year.

“A part of the decline in non-basmati rice export would get compensated through shipment to China for which Apeda has started registering exporters,” said a senior official with a large rice exporting company.

A study from India Rating (Ind-Ra) believes India’s export price is likely to remain competitive in the international market and the recent decline in India’s rice export prices could attract buying from African countries, as Indian rice has become more competitive while a decline in rupee is cushioning exporters’ margins.

Indian rice prices softened as rice exports from India declined in April 2018, due to a decline in the exports of basmati rice to Saudi Arabia and non-basmati rice to Bangladesh along with a subdued demand from African countries. Ind-Ra believes imports by Bangladesh are likely to reduce in 2018-2019, as its domestic output rebounds due to a crop recovery and expansion in area sown because of high prices in 2017. As a result, India’s exports could reduce by 0.5 million tonnes to 1 million tonnes.

In May 2017, Chinese authority had identified 14 rice exporters from India to be considered for its shipment to China. But registration of interested exporters started recently.Meanwhile, according to the third advance estimate for 2017 - 2018, India is set to achieve a record rice production of 111.5 million tonnes against the target of 108.5 million tonnes this year breaching its previous record of 109.7 million tonnes for 2016-2017.

Pangasinan-based local farmer technicians (LFTs) were trained by the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) on proper crop management to help their province sustain and even improve its rice production.

PhilRice said some 30 LFTs participated in a weeklong specialized course on “pest identification, disease diagnosis and damage assessment.”

Ev P. Angeles, training coordinator of PhilRice’s technology management and services division, said LFTs are trained to help their fellow farmers in identifying, assessing and managing major pests and diseases in rice.

Angeles added it is vital to enhance the skills and capabilities of local LFTs as they are being tapped by the Department of Agriculture “to complement local agricultural extension workers in providing technical assistance to farmers.” LFTs are model farmers in farming communities, according to Angeles.

“We chose participants from major rice-producing areas of the province who need to strengthen their pest and disease diagnostic skills or those who have not undergone other intensive field diagnostic and pest management skills training,” she was quoted as saying in a statement.

“Through practical, hands-on exercises, we hoped to enhance their competence in this critical aspect of rice crop management,” she added.

From June 4 to 8, the LFTs learned principles on the following topics: integrated pest management, agroecosystems analysis and the PalayCheck system.

These topics would help the LFTs in “making more informed decisions in pest and disease management,” according to PhilRice.

Carolina Badaguas, 54, from Sual, Pangasinan, said the training taught her how to do proper weed management.

“Weeds are rampant in our area and my fellow farmers often resort to spraying generous amount of herbicide,” Badaguas was quoted in the same statement as saying. “We learned that practicing thorough land preparation is important in managing weeds, as it helps facilitate good management of water, nutrients and pests.”

Another participant, Solomon C. Ibay of Asingan, Pangasinan, said he learned the importance of getting accurate diagnosis of rice diseases.

“When we know how to identify the kind of disease that infects our field, it is easier for us to make the right decisions in implementing the needed management practices,” the 56-year-old Ibay was quoted saying. “We also learned about harmful and friendly organisms.”

Pangasinan is the country’s third top rice-producing province in 2017, according to the Philippine Statistics Authority. The province produced 1.125 million metric tons of palay last year, which was 1.35 percent higher than the 1.11 MMT recorded output in 2016, PSA data showed.

Popular rice variety gets extra gene power to fight bacterial attacks

KOLLEGALA SHARMAT+ T-

Description: https://www.thehindubusinessline.com/news/science/u3qr8f/article24163622.ece/alternates/WIDE_660/paddy

MYSURU, JUNE 14

Researchers at the Hyderabad-based Indian Institute of Rice Research have developed a new variety of the popular Improved Samba Mahsuri (ISM) rice that can resist bacterial blight disease.

Bacterial blight disease, which affects rice crop, is caused by bacteria, Xanthomonas oryzae, and drastically reduces rice productivity.

The high yielding ISM variety is already protected against bacterial blight by three genes, but the new variety has been developed by adding another gene, Xa38, that increases the resistance. “Till now about 41 resistant genes have been identified from diverse sources.

These genes differ from each other in their mode of action. While some are broad spectrum, others are narrow in their resistance spectrum,” explained Dr Gouri Sankar Laha, who led the study, while speaking to India Science Wire.

The researchers used Marker assisted Backcross Breeding or MABB technique to accomplish the gene insertion. Unlike transgenic techniques used in genetically modified crops, MABB is less laborious but more efficient than traditional methods of ‘gene’ transfer. Besides it does not require regulatory clearances necessary for transgenic crops.

ISM is popular and has been grown in over 80,000 hectares in south and east India since its release in 2008. However, of late it was observed in experiments that when deliberately infected, ISM plants had longer lesions – infected spot - than the earlier ones, indicating emergence of a new strain of Xanthomonas.

Xanthomonas is virulent, meaning its infection spreads fast and wide. It also evolves very quickly. Thus plants that seem to be resistant now might turn susceptible later as the pathogen evolves into different strains.

“It is, therefore, necessary that we keep developing new resistant varieties. Also rice plant resistant to Xanthomonas in a particular area may not be resistant to the bacteria in another place,” explained Dr C A Deepak, a rice breeder at the University of Agricultural Sciences, Karnataka, who is not associated with the work. The breed improvement for bacterial blight disease is a continuous process.

The new breed has been field tested in farms across several states and has been exposed to various strains of Xanthomonas. “We have done three backcrossing and six generations of improvement. It has taken five years including selection of parents and initial crossing,” said Dr Laha.

The effort has resulted in several improved lines of ISM with novel, broad-spectrum blight-resistant gene Xa38 that show high levels of blight resistance to different types of Xanthomonas. These plants are better both in yield and in other traits than their ISM parent lines. After more field tests in different parts of the country, it will be ready for commercial release, Dr. Laha added.

The research team included Arra Yugander, Raman M. Sundaram, Kuldeep Singh, Duraisamy Ladhalakshmi, Lella V. Subba Rao, Maganti Sheshu Madhav, Jyothi Badri and Madamsetty Srinivas Prasad. The research results have been published in the journal PLOS One.

What makes some varieties of rice resistant to drought?

In thirty years, the global population of 7 billion will increase by 30% to a staggering 9.1 billion people. Feeding everyone with the same amount of land that is available today will undoubtedly be a challenge. Along with expanding cities gobbling up agricultural and forest land, changing climatic conditions with frequent spells of droughts also spell doom for food production. Hence, researchers around the world are developing drought-resistant varieties of food grains. In one such attempt, researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, offer critical insights into the intrinsic nature of certain types of rice that can resist drought.

Rice, a water-intensive crop grown by humans for thousands of years, is a staple in many countries and the Asian rice, Oryza sativa, is the most widely cultivated rice of the genus Oryza. The crop fails during a drought, and water scarcity affects more than 23 million hectares of rainfed rice production areas in South and Southeast Asia. While some varieties have the potential for drought adaptations, the researchers of the study are exploring the mechanism behind this through phenomics—the study of interactions of genes with changes in the environment.

“India has 34.5% of total irrigated area, which indicates that the rest of the farming area depends mostly on rain. Even after constructing 91 major reservoirs, only 162 billion cubic meters of water can be stored. Recently in India, eleven states out of twenty-nine were affected by drought, resulting in a 40% yield loss, amounting to $800 million. Therefore, our work aims at exploring the traits that can be used in selecting drought-resistant crop”, says Prof. Archana Chugh, from IIT Delhi and an author of the study published in the journal Plant Physiology and Biochemistry. The study was supported by the National Agricultural Science Fund (NASF) under the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR).

The researchers of the study investigated three varieties of rice; Sahabhagidhan—a local drought-tolerant variety, and two drought-sensitive varieties: IR64 and MTU-1010. The researchers simulated the drought condition by cutting off water supply to these plants for five consecutive days. They then explored the genetic factors that help these varieties tolerate drought and correlated them with the plant’s response to the applied stress with the aim of developing a reliable 'marker' for drought resistance, which indicates the plant's ability to survive periods of extreme water scarcity.

“A successful marker can be helpful in selection of drought-tolerant varieties at different levels like morphological, anatomical, biochemical, physiological and molecular. They should be easily detectable and stable. Secondary traits such as root attributes, xylem diameter, stomatal aperture,  proline, and malondialdehyde can be used as selection criteria by plant breeders for high yield production and drought tolerance in rice”, explains Prof. Chugh in an interview with Research Matters.

But, what exactly happens to a plant during a drought? Lack of adequate water limits its growth and affects its morphology, physiology, and biochemistry. Leaves reduce in size, the stem and roots elongate, there is a reduction in photosynthesis, transpiration and biomass, and an imbalance in nutrients. The roots are the first to experience stress due to drought as they grow beneath the soil. Hence, to survive, they either become more dense, holding the soil together and maintaining the water potential or grow deeper to access more water.

The authors found that Sahabhagidhan, the drought-tolerant variety, continued to grow its roots during the stress, while the drought sensitive varieties showed a reduction in the rate of growth. Also, they observed that in Sahabhagidhan, the xylem vessel, which carries water in plants, had reduced its area and its numbers to survive the stress. This modification maintains water supply by avoiding the formation of air bubbles, known as cavitation.

The study also found a significant correlation between the morphological traits in these roots and the expression of aquaporin genes. Aquaporins are proteins that form pores in cell membranes. They regulate water uptake along with other small molecules. The researchers investigated two aquaporins, OsPIP2;5 and OsNIP2;1, and found that the drought tolerant variety showed an increase in OsPIP2;5, which may be useful to increase the intake of water and thus supply to aerial organs. A decrease of OsNIP2;1 in the same plant indicates another method of drought avoidance—decreasing the membrane permeability to avoid excess water loss.

Correspondingly, the drought sensitive variety showed a significantly lower content of proline—an amino acid used to synthesise proteins, than the drought-resistant variety. The researchers believe this is because the proline proteins assist in maintaining the stiffness of cell membrane during water deficient periods, enabling the cell to carry on functioning. As a result of drought, plants produce malondialdehyde (MDA), a known marker of oxidative damage, a condition wherein due to chemical imbalances, the plant is unable to detoxify itself of damaging elements. Oxidative damage can eventually lead to cell death. A 1.5 fold reduction in MDA content in Sahabhagidhan, as compared to the drought sensitive variety, implies the former’s superior resistance to drought.

“Improvement of drought tolerance in rice is a challenging task due to the high complexity of the traits and poor understanding of plant response against drought. Wide knowledge of various attributes can achieve yield stability under most devastating drought stress. Our study contributes more towards selectively breeding from the thousands of cultivars available,” says Dr. Chugh when probed about the potential for findings of the study. Marker-assisted selection (MAS), discussed in this research, can help feed the millions by intelligently selecting plants with desired traits.

Mumbai: The Congress in Maharashtra has demanded that the varieties of rice that Vidarbha farmer Dadaji Khobragade developed be patented in his name to consecrate his contribution and also prevent theft of intellectual property rights.

Khobragade died on 3 June and on 13 June Congress president Rahul Gandhi visited his native place Nanded in Chandrapur district of Vidarbha to console the family. The Congress president’s visit to the Khobragade family was a significant part of his farm and Dalit outreach in Maharashtra.

Maharashtra Congress president Ashok Chavan, who had accompanied Gandhi, said at a press conference here on Thursday that the central and state governments should address the demands made by the Khobragade family to honour the innovative farmer who died in utter penury.

The Dalit farmer had developed as many as 8 varieties of rice, the most famous among them being the HMT rice variety. He developed most of these varieties in the 1980s in his marginal 1.5 acre farm.

Since Khobragade did not patent his varieties, the Nagpur-based Punjabrao Deshmukh Krushi Vidyapeeth (PKV Agriculture University) had released the HMT variety as PNB HMT following which Khobragade fought a long but unsuccessful legal battle to claim ownership of the HMT rice. His struggle and claim got somewhat acknowledged in 2005 and 2006 when he won the National Innovation Foundation’s award for original innovation and Maharashtra government’s Krushi Bhushan Puraskar, respectively.

Chavan said since Khobragade died as a poor farmer despite such a voluminous contribution that had changed the lives of millions of rice farmers, the Centre and Maharashtra government should now patent those varieties to commemorate Khobragade’s work. Chavan said the family made this and some other demands during their meeting with Rahul Gandhi.

The Maharashtra Congress president also demanded that rice research centre be set up over 100 acres at Khobragade’s native village and a Dadasaheb Khobragade Krushi Bhushan Puraskar be instituted to encourage innovation in agriculture.

Scientists have discovered some surprisingly awesome side-effects to eating lentils.

When you think of the word 'superfood,' I bet lentils are one thing that do not come to mind right away. Some interesting new science from the University of Guelph, however, could skyrocket this humble little legume to the status of dietary darling. Lentils are astoundingly effective at lowering blood glucose levels, researchers have discovered. When carbohydrates such as rice and potatoes are swapped out for lentils, it can lower blood glucose by up to 35 percent.

In the study, which is the first of its kind, 24 adult participants were given four dishes to eat -- one with plain rice, half white rice and half large green lentils, half white rice and small green lentils, and half white rice with small red lentils. Researchers measured blood glucose levels prior to eating and two hours after. The process was repeated with two more dishes -- white potatoes alone and half white potatoes with lentils.

Study author Allison Duncan, professor at the Department of Human Health and Nutrition, said,

"We mixed the lentils in with the potatoes and rice because people don't typically eat pulses on their own, but rather consume them in combination with other starches as part of a larger meal, so we wanted the results to reflect that."

The rice-and-lentil combinations saw in a 20 percent drop in blood glucose levels, while replacing potatoes with lentils led to a 35 percent decrease. This is a valuable discovery because it could help many people who struggle with chronic diseases that are associated with mismanaged glucose levels, not to mention improving the overall health of the general population.

"Pulses, such as lentils, can slow digestion and the release of sugars found in starch into the bloodstream, ultimately reducing blood glucose levels, said Duncan. "This slower absorption means you don't experience a spike in glucose. Having high levels over a period of time can lead to mismanagement of blood glucose, which is the hallmark of Type 2 diabetes. Essentially, eating lentils can lower that risk."

The University of Guelph is located in Canada, which grows 65 percent of the world's lentils, the vast majority of which come from the province of Saskatchewan. Despite this, only 13 percent of Canadians eat lentils on any given day; unfortunately they are far from being the dietary staple here that they are in India and the Middle East.

The researchers hope that this study will boost culinary interest in lentils, and that Health Canada will pay attention: "We are hoping that building evidence for approval of a health claim for pulses will further encourage people to add pulses to their side dishes."

Mumbai: The Congress in Maharashtra has demanded that the varieties of rice that Vidarbha farmer Dadaji Khobragade developed be patented in his name to consecrate his contribution and also prevent theft of intellectual property rights.

Khobragade died on 3 June and on 13 June Congress president Rahul Gandhi visited his native place Nanded in Chandrapur district of Vidarbha to console the family. The Congress president’s visit to the Khobragade family was a significant part of his farm and Dalit outreach in Maharashtra.

Maharashtra Congress president Ashok Chavan, who had accompanied Gandhi, said at a press conference here on Thursday that the central and state governments should address the demands made by the Khobragade family to honour the innovative farmer who died in utter penury.

Description: Seven countries have joined the cooperation so far

Bhutan joins Seeds Without Borders

Bhutan can now import improved variety seeds without much hassle from six countries in the region.

The country joined the Seeds Without Borders protocol with the agriculture secretary Rinzin Dorji formally signing the agreement on June 13 in Thimphu.

Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Sri Lanka are the other members of the network agreement.

The agreement initiated by International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) was first signed between Bangladesh, and India in 2013. The agreement started with rice seeds. The seed agreement covers a number of rice-based crops such as maize, wheat, vegetables, pulses and other crops with the possibility to include many more in future.

Agriculture director Kinlay Tshering said that the seed sharing agreement offers a unique opportunity to exchange high yielding varieties.

“Countries with limited resources and technical capacity to develop varieties, like Bhutan, will benefit the most by accessing seeds from similar agro-ecological conditions from partner countries,” Kinlay Tshering said.

Agriculture officials said breeding and development takes time and it’s a continuous process to keep pace with the breeding techniques in the situation of evolving biotic and abiotic stresses as well as emerging needs of various stakeholders.

“The agreement includes both inbreed and hybrid varieties,” she said.

She said that in an increasingly restrictive regime of accessing crop germplasm due to intellectual property rights related concerns, the agreement is a rare opportunity for like-minded countries to share commercial crop varieties to enhance crop production and food and nutrition security.

The vision is to ultimately have countries freely share their improved crop varieties of seeds with each other for the benefit of farmers, producers and consumers, especially the disadvantaged population.

“We’ll take advantage of the agreement for the advancement of the agriculture sector, and food and nutrition security,” director Kinlay Tshering said.

The representative from IRRI country office in Bangladesh, Humnath Bhandari signed the agreement as a witness.

The Bhutan-IRRI relationship began in early 1980s with the project on rice farming system.

The IRRI shuttle-breeding programme helped to bring different rice germplasms from IRRI Philippines and tested, developed and released some varieties of seed in Bhutan.

“Bhutan can bring suitable seeds from other countries, test and release them here which will save time, and energy resources,” he said.

Rice specialist with agriculture research centre in Bajo, Mahesh Ghimerey said that this agreement does not mean that other countries would take endemic Bhutanese varieties and commercialise.

“Within this agreement, there are protocols on how the seeds can be shared and what member countries cannot do,” he said.

The agreement will not cover movement of seeds of genetically modified varieties.

Any pertaining Intellectual Property Rights issues will be discussed through consultations and mutual agreements.

The member country, in case of unforeseen circumstances, reserves that right to withdraw with mutual consent.
