CEDAC to buy rice

The Cambodian Centre for Study and Development in Agriculture said it will buy 3,000 tonnes of organic jasmine paddy for about US$870,000 for local and export markets. CEDAC Enterprise Manager Lang Seng Haung said farmers from Kampong Cham, Prey Veng, Kampong Thom, Takeo, Kampot, Kampong Chhnang and Kampong Speu provinces would receive US$290 per tonne. Around 10 percent of the processed rice will be exported at $680 per tonne and the rest sold to local markets, he said. CEDAC sold 600 tonnes of organic rice in local markets last year.
