Conversions

The Live Rice Index uses standard metric units for mass and area. These units are metric tonnes (MTS) for mass and hectares (ha.) for area. However, across the world a variety of units from different systems of measurement may be used to record mass and area. In order to reduce confusion, the LRI have developed the following conversion tables to convert a range of units into their metric counterparts. We have also included price conversion information to convert price per non-metric mass values into price per metric tonne (PMT) values, and field yield conversion information to convert non-metric yield values into metric tonnes per hectare (MTS/ha.) values.
