WORLD RICE PROSPECTS 
 
   A turn to drier, warmer weather in rice areas of Indochina at this time 
should favor the maturing crop and the harvest. Above normal seasonal rains 
will provide adequate irrigation for dry season rice crops. 
   In the Philippines episodes of seasonal showers will favor winter grown rice 
crops. Heavy rains due to Typhoon Nock-Ten likely caused flooding for some rice 
areas early last week. Severe flooding may have occurred. 
   Seasonal rains have ended through north and central India. This should help 
improve conditions for the harvest of Kharif crops and planting of the Rabi 
crop. Soil moisture and irrigation will mostly favor development of the Rabi 
crop. 
   Seasonally drier weather in southern China at this time will favor the final 
harvest effort for rice.
