AGCOM INTERNATIONAL: JASMINE 85--ALMOST NAMED "IMELDA"-- HELPS U.S. COMPETE WITH THAI IMPORTS

That's 5% of total U.S. rice consumption, according to Andy Aaronson, chairman of the USDA Inter-Agency Commodity Committee for Rice.

The price of jasmine is rising. In June, 1997, Thai jasmine retailed for $0.40 per pound in Asian markets. But in October, 50-pound sacks of Thai jasmine sold for $0.50 per pound vs. $0.28 per pound for U.S. long grain at the Kim Hung Supermarket, Houston.
The higher prices are partly because "exports to China are increasing, especially to urban areas along the eastern coast where profitable new industries are located," Aaronson says.

Iraq has been buying instead from ...

Iraq has been buying instead from Asia and South America, and it recently lowered its quality standards so it would be able to buy rice from India, something that was impossible under the Iraqi Grain Board's old rules, said Andy Aaronson, chairman of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Rice Interagency Commodity Estimate Committee. It also recently bought rice from Uruguay, which grows a variety similar to the American one but sold for less.

"Iraq seems to be buying on price, and the lowest offered price is coming now from India," Aaronson said.
...
It stopped buying American rice during the Gulf War in the early 1990s and in 2003, when the most recent war started, Aaronson said.
...
The combination is squeezing farmers, Aaronson said.
