    Indian rice prices slide to seven-month low as demand stalls

    Rice export prices in top exporter India slid this week to their lowest in nearly seven months as demand continued to stagnate, while rates for Vietnamese rice dipped on expected increase in stockpiles after the summer harvest. India's 5 percent broken parboiled variety was quoted around $362-$365 a tonne this week, down from last week's $371-$374 for a sixth weekly decline as it also came under pressure from depreciation in the rupee. "Demand has dried up in the West African market, as they are sitting on high inventories," said Nitin Gupta, vice president for Olam India's rice business.

    US moves to cut off Venezuela oil, Cuba trade

    The United States on Friday announced sanctions on ships of Venezuela's state oil company and companies that link it to key ally Cuba, hoping to cut off vital lifelines for President Nicolas Maduro. Vice President Mike Pence unveiled the latest measures in Washington's bid to oust Maduro, a leftist firebrand who has nonetheless held on to power for more than two months, and vowed further pressure on Cuba -- a bugbear of the United States for a half-century. "Venezuela's oil belongs to the Venezuelan people," Pence said in a speech at Rice University in Houston.

    No Green Jacket on offer, but women's golf heads to the home of The Masters for historic event

    The famous course has been home to The Masters, which is one of the four elite men's professional majors, since 1934 but has never hosted a female event. It wasn't until August 2012 that Augusta National admitted its first two female members, when former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore were invited in. This week marks a landmark occasion for golf, as for the first time the Augusta National Golf Club located in Atlanta, GA, will host the final round of a women's event.

    India rice prices slip as demand dips; domestic buying props up Thai rates

    Top exporter India's 5 percent broken parboiled variety was quoted around $390-$393 per tonne, down from the previous week when prices rose to the highest level in more than seven months at $392-$395. Last week's price rise was attributed to an appreciation in the rupee, which lowers returns from overseas sales. In Thailand, benchmark 5 percent broken rice prices rose to $400-$404 a tonne, free on board Bangkok, on Thursday, from $390-$393 last week.

    Asia Rice: India prices slip for third straight week on slow demand

    Rice export prices in India eased for a third consecutive week due to waning demand and prospects of fresh supplies, while markets in Thailand and Vietnam were propped up by expectations of orders from China and Philippines. Rates for top exporter India's 5 percent broken parboiled variety fell to $365-$370 per tonne from $367-$373 last week, as demand remained tepid, traders and dealers said. In neighbouring Bangladesh, imports slowed down to 80,000 tonnes in July-September owing to the imposition of a tax on rice imports in June, the country's food ministry data showed.

    Exclusive: Water shortages to cut Iraq's irrigated wheat area by half

    Iraq, a major Middle East grain buyer, will cut the irrigated area it plants with wheat by half in the 2018-2019 growing season as water shortages grip the country, a government official told Reuters. Drought and dwindling river flows have already forced Iraq to ban farmers from planting rice and other water-intensive summer crops. Water scarcity was one of the issues galvanizing street protests in the country this year.

    By ratcheting up U.S. interest rates, the Federal Reserve has — unintentionally — led investors to pull money out of emerging markets like Turkey, strengthened the dollar's value and made it harder for foreign companies to repay their dollar-denominated debts. ANKARA, Turkey (AP) -- Turkey is increasing tariffs on imports of certain U.S. products, escalating a feud with the United States that has helped trigger a currency crisis. Turkey said it was imposing extra tariffs on imports of products including rice, vehicles, alcohol, coal and cosmetics.

    World food prices down 3.7 pct m/m in July - U.N. FAO

    World food prices fell 3.7 percent in July from the month before, the sharpest monthly drop since last December, with declines seen across all crop types, the United Nations food agency said on Thursday. The Food and Agriculture Organization's (FAO) food price index, which measures monthly changes for a basket of cereals, oilseeds, dairy products, meat and sugar, averaged 168.8 points last month, against an upwardly revised 175.3 in June. "The decline in July was driven by weaker export quotations for wheat, maize and rice," FAO said.

Plus, crop-swapping would have the added benefit of boosting national nutrition, a new Science Advances study finds. As the second-largest country in the world with 1.3 billion…

    In the black: Asian flour mills turn to Black Sea region for wheat

    Asian flour millers are set to buy record volumes of wheat from Black Sea producers in 2018 as traditional supplier Australia faces a second year of drought and as demand continues to grow around the region, traders said. Millers in Asia have in the past month or so booked up to 1 million tonnes of new-crop Black Sea wheat for shipments starting in August, two of the traders said, with a wave of similar deals expected to follow. Surging Black Sea wheat sales to Asia threaten to curb Australia's dominance in supplying the region, where appetite for wheat is climbing as an expanding middle class consumes more noodles, pizzas and cakes, as it moves away from rice.
