Dr. Bobby Coats, Agricultural Economist and Professor of Economics
Join in Thursday, July 26 at 10 a.m. CST as we host Dr. Nathan Childs. He will analyze the current U.S. rice market forecasts for both the 2017/18 and 2018/19 market years, highlighting the impacts of the June NASS Acreage and Rice Stocks reports, as well as current and revised trade data. Despite expectations of larger U.S. exports in 2018/19, an almost 20-percent increase in production is projected to result in a 31-percent boost in U.S. rice ending stocks. In the global rice market, a slight decrease in global production is projected to result in a small decline in 2018/19 world ending stocks, with global trade in 2019 projected record high.
