      6 SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS 1. The rice economy is sharply skewed. Rice cultivation has provided the bulk of agricultural output and employment in most developing economies in Asia, by far the largest grower of this staple foodgrain. Asia also has the highest rates of rice consumption, averaging more than 79 kilograms ( pounds) per person annually. As a result, the majority of Asia’s rice stays within the region and international trade rates are fairly low. Southeast Asia is also a major producer of .
