INDONESIA - Both Indonesian rice and corn production estimates for MY (market year) 2011/12 are expected to be higher than Post’s previous MY 2010/11 estimates.

The increased production estimates are due to more favorable rainfall patterns during the production stage and fewer than expected problems with pests and diseases during the first main harvest.

Paddy in most rice producing areas is ready for the first main harvest in February and March 2012.

Some corn in upland areas has already been harvested as of early February 2012.
