Cambodia: Cambodia Annual Grain and Feed Report

Commodities

Cambodia’s rice cultivation area and production volume in MY 2016/2017 and MY 2017/2018 are expected to increase because the drought eased in late summer of 2016, and because of continuing government supports to the rice sector. China’s commitment to increase purchases of rice from Cambodia to 200,000MT per year is expected to raise the total rice exports volume in 2017 and 2018. Meanwhile, the European Union (EU) has recently tightened the residue limit of tricyclazole on rice. This situation poses an ongoing challenge to Cambodian rice exports into EU, and shifts rice millers’ attention to the expanding Chinese market.
