WORLD RICE PROSPECTS 
 
   Seasonally dry and warm weather in rice areas of Indochina at this time 
should favor the mature crop and the harvest. Above normal moisture during the 
rainy season provided adequate irrigation for dry season rice crops. 
   In the Philippines a rainy weather pattern has returned to some locations 
during the past week. This will be mostly favorable for late development of 
rice but may be unfavorable for early maturing rice crops. 
   The Rabi rice crop grown in east and south India will rely on irrigation to 
support favorable development at this time. The crop may be under some stress 
due to above normal temperatures and an early end in the seasonally rains in 
some sections. However, winter time rainfall in southern most areas of India 
will improved the outlook for this part of the crop.
