FEATURE: RECORDS BROKEN IN PANDEMIC YEAR

RICE
The IGC forecasts a rise of 1% in world rice production
in 2020-21, reaching 504 million tonnes, "led by gains
in the major exporters after firm international prices encouraged planting amid generally positive conditions."
India's output of rice in 2020-21 may reach a record
120 million tonnes, up from 118.4 million the year
before, with expanded acreage encouraged by higher
government minimum support prices.
"Fieldwork for the main summer-sown (kharif) crop
has also been aided by a beneficial Southwest mon-

soon, with cumulative precipitation as of Sept. 20 being 7% above the long-term average," IGC said.
Thailand's crop is forecast at 19.1 million tonnes,
up from 18 million the year before, with planting supported by firm prices. However, the IGC also noted that
water levels in the country's main dams were lower on
Sept. 1 than at the same time last year.
"While monsoon rains through to October are expected to improve water availabilities, supplies for irrigated fields are likely to remain tight in 2020-21," the
IGC said.
The US crop is expected to reach 7.1 million tonnes,
up from 5.9 million the previous year, after "improved
conditions and firmer prices resulted in an expansion of
long-grain acreage," according to the IGC.
Pakistan and Vietnam also are expected to produce
more, which mean that production in the five major
exporters is forecast to reach 182.1 million tonnes, up
from 177.8 million the year before.
China's output is forecast to reach 147.6 million
tonnes, up from 146.7 million.
"This is partly linked to increased sowings of earlyseason rice following higher government support prices, and as yields of middle- and late-season crops are
expected to tick up year-on-year on generally favorable
conditions," the IGC said.
OILSEEDS
The world's total soybean production is expected to
reach 373 million tonnes in 2020-21, up 10% on the
previous year.
"Most of the predicted increase stems from prospects
for a rebound in US production, together with potentially larger harvests, too, in South America, where
planting has just commenced," the IGC said.
The US crop is expected to total 116.5 million
tonnes, up from 96.7 million the year before, on the

up on the previous year and "still potentially one of the
largest crops on record," according to the IGC, despite
"abnormally dry late-summer weather across the western Corn Belt, as well as a severe August windstorm
in Iowa, normally the country's largest state producer."
China's crop forecast, at 258 million tonnes, is down
1% on the year.
"While the full extent of recent typhoon damage to
maize crops across China's key northeastern provinces
remains unclear, the heavy rains and wind are expected
to cut yields and harvested area," the IGC said.
Argentina's corn crop is put at 54.3 million tonnes,
down 7%. Area is forecast to drop by 4% "mainly
because of strong competition from soybeans," the
IGC said.
Brazil's 2020-21 corn crop is tentatively put at 112.5
million tonnes, according to the IGC, up 10%, on the
basis of trend yields.
"Planting of first (full-season) corn in Brazil has
started, but with some delays caused by spells of dry
and cold weather in Parana and Rio Grande do Sul,"
the IGC said. "Spurred by very high prices and solid
demand, both from domestic and overseas users, total
area is projected to rise by 6%, to a record 19.7 million hectares."
