    Rice Comment
    Rice futures firmed to close a little higher for the day. No doubt smaller U.S. plantings are driving the boat. There is little other fundamental news to support the market. International markets are mixed. Available Thai stocks are dwindling and that market has firmed, but 10 mmt of intervention stocks are tucked away and could come to market at some point in the future. An intervention program in Vietnam failed to firm that market.
