The conclusion of the harvest in Brazil’s southernmost state Rio Grande do Sul did not lead to an increase in business activity for paddy rice. Cepea researchers attribute this low liquidity primarily to the significant gap between the purchase and sale prices of the cereal. However, on the international front, rice exports experienced growth in April, while imports declined, resulting in a favorable impact on Brazil’s trade balance.

Based on data from Brazil’s foreign trade government agency, Brazilian rice exports reached 140.2 thousand tonnes in April 2023, measured in terms of paddy rice equivalent. This figure represents a 21.1% increase compared to March 2023 and a significant 107% increase compared to April 2022.
