ข้าวไทย



ข้าวไทย

หม่อมเจ้าสิทธิพรฯ
ทรงกล่าวสัจวาจา
"เงินทองของมายา
ข้าวปลาเป็นของจริง"

มื้อนี้แหล่ะข้าวไทย
ไปเข้าห้างไปขึ้นหึ้ง
ต่างช่วงและต่างชิง
ขึ้นตาชั่งตั้งราคา

ข้าวไทยคือทองคำ
อร่ามทุ่งอร่ามท่า
วันนี้แหล่ะชาวนา
จะเงยหน้าจากแผ่นดิน

น้ำมันอันพุ่งแพง
ราวแกล้งโลกให้เดือดดิ้น
ทองคำก็โบยบิน
บ่รู้สุดที่จุดใด

ในน้ำนั้นมีปลา
แลในนามีข้าวให้
นี่คือกำลังไทย
ที่จะสู้กับสากล

จงรักแผ่นดินเกิด
จงทูนเทิดเนื้อนาตน
เทิดค่าผู้นาชน
ผู้สร้างไทยให้เป็นไทย!

FAO expects rice production to rise by 1.8 percent in 2008

Market situation remains difficult in the short-term –lower rice trade

2 April 2008, Rome

World rice production is expected to increase in 2008 by 12 million tonnes or 1.8 percent, assuming normal weather conditions, FAO said today. Production increases would ease the current very tight supply situation in key rice producing countries, according to the first FAO forecast for this year. International rice trade is expected to decrease, mainly due to restrictions in main exporting countries.

Sizable production increases are expected in all the major Asian rice producing countries, especially Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, the Philippines and Thailand, where supply and demand are currently rather stretched. Governments in these countries have already announced a series of incentives to raise production.

Production outlook is also positive in Africa, where high world prices may sustain a two percent growth, particularly in Egypt, Guinea, Nigeria and Sierra Leone. Concerns about food import dependency in the region have led to a mobilization of resources towards the rice sector. Production is expected to recover strongly in Latin America. Rice production in the European Union is also expected to rise while it may contract in Japan, one of the few countries where producer prices fell last year.

In the rest of the world, a dismal production is forecast in Australia, reflecting extremely low water availability. A reduced crop is also expected in the United States, mainly as a result of a cut in area caused by mounting competition from more profitable crops.

Short-term volatility

“The international rice market is currently facing a particularly difficult situation with demand outstripping supply and substantial price increases,” said FAO Senior Economist Concepcion Calpe. “Higher rice production in 2008 could reduce the pressure, but short-term volatility will probably continue, given the very limited supplies available from stocks. This implies that the market may react very strongly to any good or bad news about crops or policies,” she added.

According to the latest FAO estimates, paddy production rose by one percent in 2007 to 650 million tonnes, which implies that it would be the second consecutive year where production growth would fall short of population growth, resulting in a drop of rice production on a per caput basis.

Trade

International trade in rice in 2008 is currently foreseen to reach 29.9 million tonnes, 1.1 million tonnes lower than the revised 2007 trade estimate. The very tight supply situations that most exporting countries may face until the last quarter of the year and the associated restrictions on exports lay much behind the anticipated drop of rice trade in 2008. Currently, China, India, Egypt, Viet Nam, four among the traditional rice exporting countries, as well as Cambodia, have either imposed minimum export prices, export taxes or export quotas/bans. Such moves are expected to reduce rice exported from these countries. As for imports, the drop reflects prospects of lower shipments to Bangladesh, Indonesia and the Islamic Republic of Iran, as supply and demand situation in those countries may ease somewhat compared with last year.

Prices

Since January 2008 international rice prices have seen a steep increase of about 20 percent, according to the FAO All Rice Price Index. For instance, in March 2008 the high quality Thai 100% B was quoted US$ 546 per tonne, up 13 percent compared to February and 68 percent higher than in March 2007.

Recent sudden price rises reflect the very limited supplies available for sale, especially given the wide range of restrictions imposed by key major exporting countries. The tendency for further price rises, however, may diminish somewhat in the next few months, with the arrival of new rice harvests in Brazil or Uruguay but also in Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Thailand and Viet Nam. “So far, prospects regarding these crops are positive,” Calpe said.

Urgent measures required to reduce impact of high food prices on the poor

UN agency chiefs highlight role of agro-industries

9 April 2008, New Delhi

Urgent measures are needed to ensure that short-term adverse effects of higher food prices do not impact even more alarmingly on the very poor, FAO Director-General Jacques Diouf said today.

Addressing the first Global Agro-Industries Forum in New Delhi, along with the heads of UNIDO and IFAD, Dr Diouf highlighted the important role that agro-industry had to play in overcoming these problems.

“World food prices have risen 45 percent in the last nine months and there are serious shortages of rice, wheat and maize,” Dr Diouf said.

A combination of factors, including reduced production due to climate change, historically low levels of stocks, higher consumption of meat and dairy products in emerging economies, increased demand for biofuels production and the higher cost of energy and transport have led to surges in food prices.

UNIDO’s Director-General, Kandeh K. Yumkella, said: “Climate change will impose great stresses on the world’s ability to feed ever growing populations. This challenge brings new threats to arable land areas, livestock rearing and fisheries through droughts, water shortages and pollution of land, air and sea. It is, after all, agricultural and livestock production that provide the raw materials that are basic to human existence – especially food.”

The President of IFAD, Lennart Båge, told the conference that in recent years, a number of developing countries have become net importers of food. In countries from Bangladesh to Zambia, nearly 40 per cent of the population was undernourished. “The explosive and rapid rise of food prices is worsening their situation,” Båge said.

“With greater investment in agriculture and rural development, the world’s 400 million smallholders could mobilize their under-utilized potential, not only to improve their own nutrition and incomes but to enhance national food security and overall economic growth,” the IFAD President said.

Potential of agro-industry

Dr Diouf said: “It is essential to increase agricultural investment in water control and infrastructure and to facilitate small farmer access to inputs, so they can raise their productivity.” He stressed the importance of effective marketing and processing systems for agricultural products.

“Agro-industry helps preserve foodstuffs, add value and reduce post-harvest losses; it enables products to travel longer distances, including to the rapidly expanding cities,” he noted. “For its part, agro-industry generates demand for agricultural products and holds vast potential for off-farm rural employment. It also adds significant value to farm production, whether for domestic or export markets.”

The Global Agro-Industries Forum, being held from April 8-11, has attracted over 500 participants from 120 countries. Both government and private sectors are represented and there are also participants from NGOs and farmer organizations.

Benefit sharing

The Agency Heads warned that the benefits of agro-industrial development might not be universally shared, as small agricultural enterprises are facing difficulties in some countries. Customs tariffs, non-tariff barriers, standards and certification requirements, and export volumes demanded constitute major impediments for many small exporters.

Urbanization, rising incomes and women joining the labour market in many countries have boosted demand for convenience food. Worldwide, processed food and beverages now account for 80 percent of total food and drink sales, which rose 57 percent between 2001 and 2007. Partly in response to this trend, there has been a rapid expansion of supermarkets in many countries, notably in Latin America and Southeast Asia.

FAO, in partnership with the other agencies and NGOs, is working to establish solid links between small farmers and buyers, by grouping and organizing farmers into producer associations and cooperatives.

Dr Yumkella said that for the UN system and its development partners the challenge was to cooperate: to help agro-industrial enterprises to grow and flourish; to provide jobs and create wealth; and, thus to foster sustainable economic and human development.

The New Delhi Forum is jointly organized by FAO, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), in close collaboration with the Government of India.

FAO is also organizing a High-Level Conference on “World Food Security: the Challenges of Climate Change and Bioenergy” at its headquarters in Rome from 3 to 5 June 2008, thus offering a forum for Heads of State and Government to discuss the pressing challenges facing global food security and to adopt required actions to deal with the situation.

เงินทองของมายา ข้าวปลาเป็นของจริง


เคยได้ยินประโยคนี้จาก อาจารย์ทั่นหนึ่งครับ
ตอนนั้น ก็ฟังได้ เข้าใจบ้าง ไม่เข้าใจบ้าง

แต่ตอนนี้น่าจะเข้าใจมากขึ้น
ประเทศเราเป็นประเทศเกษตรกรรม เราสามารถผลิต "ของจริง" ได้มากมาย
แต่น่าแปลกว่า ทำไมถึงได้ไปตามกลิ่น "ของมายา" อย่างนั้น

แวะมาทักทายพี่เป่าจินครับ
