Rice (Part II): Crop Yield and Price


Top 3 rice crop yield:

Albania, Egypt and Australia (hmmm, the rich and developed nations do not neccessarily be producing higher yield with the help of R&D and technology?)

Malaysia: 3325.9 kg/Ha [2004]

Bottom 3 rice crop yield:

Republic of Congo, Democrat Republic of Congo and Malawi. (phew*sigh relief*, Malaysia is not in the list)

Top 3 rice producer price:

Japan, Turkmenistan and Zimbabwe. It is not surprise to know that Japanese produces very expensive rice: scarcity of the land pretty much tell the whole story.

Malaysia: USD190.00 per tonne [2003]

Bottom 3 rice producer price:

Brazil, Suriname, and Russia. Just compare the price between the top (Japan) and lowest (Brazil). It is such a huge difference!
