Live Rice Index
Pakistan is one of the world’s major rice exporters, shipping a total of around 4 million MTS (milled equivalent) annually to East Africa, Europe, the Middle East and China. Pakistan has one harvest a year; the non-Basmati long grain harvest usually begins in September and the Basmati harvest usually begins in November. The country’s non-Basmati long grain crop is generally the first from the major Asian origins to enter the international market, which provides exporters the opportunity to conclude business at lower prices. Pakistan’s 1121 and Super Kernel Basmati rice is cultivated in the Punjab region in the Himalayan foothills, while majority of the other varieties, including IRRI-6, are cultivated in Sindh.
