Rice

Rice futures took another dip despite relatively firm demand and tightening stocks here in the U.S. Planting progress is still behind in Arkansas 60% versus 78%, and Mississippi 22% versus 88%. However, the overall crop stands at 69% versus 74%. The Asian market is another matter with growing stocks and a generally weak market undertone. That factor tends to overhang the futures market despite the relative disassociation seen by the trade.
