A rice vendor reaches out for an Indonesian rupiah note at a market in Jakarta January 13, 2011. Global food prices hit a record last month, outstripping levels that prompted riots in 2008, and key grains could climb even further as weather patterns give cause for concern, the United Nations food agency said. The Indonesian government has already decided to import 1.3 million tonnes of rice from Thailand and Vietnam ahead of the local harvest in February, after not importing it in the past two years.

An ear of wheat is seen on the Canadian prairies near Lethbridge, Alberta, September 7, 2011. Wheat is the most important cereal in the world and along with rice and maize accounts for about 73% of world cereal production. Canada is the world's third largest exporter, producing annually an average of over 24 million tonnes. The world's population will reach seven billion on 31 October 2011, according to projections by the United Nations. While more people are living longer and healthier lives, says the U.N., widening gaps between rich and poor mean more people than ever are vulnerable to food and water shortages.

Indonesia should decide on how much rice it will import by June, as that is when the government will have a clear idea about the size of the domestic crop, the head of Bulog said on Thursday. Last year, Southeast Asia's largest economy imported 1.9 million tonnes of rice from Thailand, Vietnam and India, to ensure it had plentiful stocks of the staple food, and to avoid stoking food inflation.

Corn plants struggle to survive on a drought-stricken field in Oakland City
Corn plants struggle to survive on a drought-stricken field in Oakland City, Indiana, July 24, 2012.Welcome rains provided some relief to heat-stressed cities and worried farmers in the U.S. Midwest on Tuesday, but reports of failed crops, wildfires and other fallout from the worst U.S.drought in more than 50 years tempered any optimism. The first soaking rains for weeks in parts of the northern Midwest sent U.S. corn and soybean prices sharply lower. But those prices still hover around record highs with weather forecasts for August indicating more heat is on the way. REUTERS/ John Sommers II (UNITED STATES - Tags: DISASTER BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT)
