Keynote: The Law of Unintended Consequences: Embracing Change Part II

In the words of Abraham Lincoln, “the best way to predict the future is to create it.” While that may have been possible 160 years ago, in today’s world we are faced with expecting the unexpected on a consistent basis. Confronted with a growing number of issues that are disrupting rice farmers, rice mills, rice families and all the allied business world…..where do we go from here?

Southern USA Rice: A Commodity or Specialty Crop?

Long grain rice in the southern USA has lost its standing as the Gold Standard for quality over the last decade or more. Southern USA farmers are incentivized to grow the highest yields per area planted. The domestic market for long grain rice is not as demanding for grain appearance and cooking quality as our Latin American customers. With 50% of USA production destined for the international marketplace, Horizon Ag has positioned itself to meet the demands of both domestic and international customer preferences.

Breeding Future Southern U.S. Long Grain Rice Varieties for Latin American Markets

Many Latin American markets for long grain rice varieties have very specific and unique requirements for the rice that they are importing. These requirements include certain cooking characteristics that are related to cereal chemistry components of the rice grain but may include other modifying components as well. These markets also demand very high grain appearance quality related to grain transparency, uniformity, color, and other factors. This presentation will detail how U.S. rice breeders (both public and private) are conducting short- and long-term research to meet these requirements. This research involves new laboratory instrumentation as well as incorporation of recent advances in Marker Assisted Selection. Some of this research is being conducted by breeders from Latin American who are working in the U.S. programs pursuing advanced degrees.

Impacts of Higher Agricultural Input Values and Competitive Crop Pricing on the Rice Sector

After a rough 2021, 2022 brings its own unique set of challenges to the rice industry.  Record prices for fertilizer and ag-chemistries have significantly impacted the producer balance sheet, leaving much uncertainty as to how growers can maintain profitability in this environment.  In an effort to control costs, production best practices may not be followed as strictly as normal which can have far reaching impacts on the global trade.  This presentation examines the impact and inter-relationships between the underlying price changes in fertilizer, chemistry and other agricultural inputs on the costs of production associated with growing rice and the resulting price implications in the cash markets.  After analyzing the price impacts, the results are applied to a competitive commodity basket (rice, corn, soybeans, and wheat) at a macro level to evaluate the factors influencing producers planting and production decisions to better understand the market fundamentals for the 2022/23 rice crop.  The session will also include a global perspective on the dynamic impacts of world events on the supply, distribution, and marketing chains associated with world grain production.  By providing a more thorough understanding of the underlying factors, both buyers and sellers can make more informed decisions during this time of market volatility.
