The world’s top rice-eating nations are taking a break from the cheap rice they are producing to buy more local ingredients, such as brown rice.
But many of the world’s poor, most of whom live in the poorest countries, are still eating rice that is grown and grown in poor countries and is not well-tolerated by the health authorities in the wealthier countries.
The new move is expected to help rice producers compete more effectively with rice-growing countries that are also facing rising food prices.
In some countries, rice production is being driven by the demand for cheap meat and processed foods.
“There is a lot of rice farming going on around the world,” said Dr. Paul De Graaf, a rice specialist at the University of Texas at Dallas who has been studying rice for more than a decade.
“If you can’t get it, you can get it elsewhere.”
The new approach could also help improve the rice crop’s yields and provide more affordable meals for the world, De Graab said.
The US Department of Agriculture announced the new policy on Thursday, calling for producers to buy locally grown rice instead of imported grains.
It said it is trying to make rice more affordable, but the plan is still a work in progress.
In 2015, rice producers from China, India, the Philippines and the Philippines alone imported 2.5 billion tonnes of rice, and about a third of it came from Africa, according to the USDA.
China, the world leader in rice production, is one of the poorest nations in the world.
According to the World Bank, the poorest half of the population in China consumes more than half of its rice.
Rice has long been seen as a staple in Chinese cuisine, but it has also been widely used in food production in the Middle East, Africa and Latin America.
Rice can be used to make soups, sauces and other products, and rice is also used in the production of food and other food products.
But there is a lack of scientific research into the impact of local rice growing on human health.
De Graf said the new move would be a welcome one, but that the new rice procurement strategy should not be confused with the “brown rice” policy introduced in the US by the US Department and Agriculture.
“What they are doing is trying really hard to promote a policy of importation,” De Graff said.
“But it doesn’t really work because it doesn’ t really reduce the amount of rice grown in the developing countries.”
The rice shortage is expected in India and South Africa, where about a fifth of the rice grown is exported, according the World Food Programme.
In the United States, farmers produce about 25 percent of the total rice used in processed foods and about 10 percent of all foodstuffs grown in other countries.
De Waaf said the move would help producers compete with rice growing countries that have already grown rice in more productive areas, including China, Indonesia and Vietnam.
DeWaaf said rice production in poorer countries is often dominated by rice grown under “factory farming,” where small numbers of farmers cultivate small plots of rice in a large area.
The production of rice is often restricted to a few large rice-producing fields, with much of the rest of the land either used for crop irrigation or used for growing fodder.
In a recent report, the World Economic Forum said there was a need to diversify and increase the use of local food sources in the global food system.
De Haaf said there are other problems that must be addressed in the rice sector, such an underutilization of local soil.
But he said there is little evidence to show that local rice is the way forward for rice production.
