Rice, the primary staple for more than half the world's population, is produced worldwide. The United States is a major exporter, and the global market accounts for nearly half the annual sales volume of U.S.-produced rice. Four U.S. regions produce almost all of the country's rice crop--three in the South and one in California--each specializing in a specific type of rice. ERS work on the rice market includes:

  • Current and historical data on rice production, uses, farm-level prices, and trade;
  • Monthly market outlook reports on rice supply, output, prices, and trade, including market prospects in major trading countries, and information on the various types of U.S.-grown rice; and
  • In-depth analyses of domestic and global developments affecting the rice market, including supply, demand, and commodity and trade policy.
