Chicago: Rough rice traded around $15.12 per hundredweight on the first day of February 2022, close to levels not seen since July of 2020 amid expectations of lower supply.

Moreover, prices increased on the back of logistic bottlenecks that are limiting rice exports from India, the world’s biggest rice exporter.
