U.S. Rice Supplies Expected to Tighten in 2017/18; U.S. Prices Projected Higher, May 25, 2017 Presenter: Nathan Childs, agricultural economist with USDA’s Economic Research Service. This webinar focused on USDA’s projections for the 2017/18 U.S. and global rice markets. The main themes were: A 10-percent decline in U.S. rice production is expected to reduce U.S. rice supplies 7 percent in 2017/18. Tighter supplies and higher projected prices are behind expectations of smaller domestic use and U.S. exports in 2017/18. In the global market, production is expected to again exceed use, with global ending stocks in 2017/18 projected to increase to the highest level since 2001/02.
