2005 Rice Production

The graph above shows the production of rice for 2005. The top 11 countries together produce 545,275,682 of the total world production of 617,941,079 Mt (based on FAOSTAT, 2005. Crops Primary data last updated July 14, 2005, Food Supply Data last updated Aug 27, 2004.) The top two producing countries produced more than the other 9 together. The map in Figure 2* shows 2005 rice production in Mt across the world.

Oryza Harvest and Production Statistics

The following graphs were produced using data from FAOSTAT Agricultural Data. The production of the graphs was assisted by two of the Plant Genome Research Outreach Program's high school interns, Sara Shapleigh and David Drew.

The general trend worldwide and in the United States indicates that there was a greater increase in rice production over the last 40 years than in the amount of land used to farm rice.
