According to the Department of Crop Production (Ministry of Agricultural Development), as of August 25, 1.017 million hectares were harvested for the summer-autumn crop of 2023 in the Mekong Delta out of a total sown area of 1.482 million hectares. , is estimated at 6.034 million tons of rice. For the autumn-winter harvest of 2023, 490,000/700,000 hectares of the expected area were sown, 25,000 hectares were harvested.
Recently talking with PV.VietNamNetMr. Pham Thai Binh, chairman of Trung An Hi-tech Agriculture Joint Stock Company, said that the domestic rice purchase price is higher than the current export price.
According to him, the price of all types of rice has risen to almost 8,000 VND/kg. At this price, if translated into export rice, it is equivalent to a price of US$670-680/ton, while the export price of 5% crushed rice is US$638/ton (August 25). If you buy rice and export rice now, the enterprise will incur a loss of about 30-40 US dollars / ton.
Therefore, most enterprises temporarily stopped buying rice, postponed the delivery schedule for the importing partner and negotiated to adjust the price increase, but it was practically not approved.
For small orders, traditional customers and enterprises are suggesting extending the delivery date until the winter-spring harvest to harmonize the relationship between the two parties, Mr. Bin said.
