Australia is the best country in the world to grow rice.

Rice Production Facts

Australian rice growers produce more rice per hectare, than anywhere else in the world. The Australian industry averages over 10 tonnes per hectare. This is more than twice the global average of 4.3 tonnes per hectare.

Australia’s temperate climate in the Riverina makes it ideal for the production of high quality, medium grain rice, (high solar radiation, no pests and disease). 

Australian rice is the cleanest and greenest in the world. Our growers use a unique crop rotation system, which takes advantage of natural biological controls, to help our growing areas remain free of  serious pests and diseases. Australia's Rice Industry has lower chemical use than other countries in the developed world.
