Indonesia eyes 7% increase in rice output despite El Nino

INDONESIA is expecting a seven per cent increase in rice output in 2015 despite dry weather due to the El Nino phenomenon this year, Agriculture Ministry officials said on Thursday, as the government discussed emergency measures to support farmers.

The El Nino, a warming of sea-surface temperatures in the Pacific, can lead to scorching weather in Asia and East Africa but heavy rains and flooding in South America.

Indonesia is expected to face moderate El Nino conditions from July to November, affecting provinces from Sumatra to eastern Indonesia, although the weather pattern could strengthen from September to December.
