WORLD RICE PROSPECTS 
 
   Widespread and heavier rainfall through much of Indo China during the past 
couple of weeks with improve soil moisture and irrigation for planting of the 
main rice crops in the region. The heaviest of these rains occurred in 
Thailand. 
   In the Philippines an increase in scattered shower activity has recently 
helped to maintain soil moisture at favorable levels for planting and early 
growth of rice. 
   Increasing shower activity in east and south India will help improve soil 
moisture for planting of the Kharif rice crop. Rice planting continues in 
northwest India in a heavily irrigated region of the country. Planting will 
increase as seasonal rains become more widespread. 
   Mostly favorable conditions at this time for reproductive to maturing early 
crop rice in China. Early rains will also favor vegetative single crop rice at 
this time. 
   Warmer temperatures and recent shower activity will improve conditions for 
planting rice through Korea and in Japan at this time. However, more rain is 
needed in some locations.
