Bad weather condition affects rice output in South Korea

Seoul: Poor weather has affected the rice output in South Korea this year as compared to last year, as per the statistical data.

As per the statistics, the rice output was down by 3% to 3,764,000 tons in 2022, compared to the preceding year.

Last year rice output increased by 10.7%. It was sliding continuously in the previous five years from 2016 to 2020.
