The context section of the Rice Observatory aims to introduce the importance of rice cultivation in relation to other crops, both at the national and regional levels. The section is composed of two parts
  1. Area: It presents indicators on the importance of the crop in relation to the cultivated area
    1. Position of the crop in relation to the cultivated area: Indicates the position in which the rice crop is located in relation to the area cultivated with other crops at the national level
    2. Rice area in relation to arable land at the national level: Proportion of the area cultivated with rice over the total area cultivated with crops at the national level, excluding the area destined for animal production (grasslands)
    3. Rice area in relation to the area under temporary crops at the national level: Proportion of the area under rice in relation to the total area under crops at the national level, excluding the area for animal production (grassland) and the area for permanent crops
  2. Production value: It presents economic indicators that contextualize the importance of rice cultivation in relation to value of production. Is expressed in nominal values in local currency
    1. Agricultural GDP (Value Added): Sum of the value added of crop production at the national level. The value of animal production is excluded
    2. Value of rice production: Estimated gross value of rice production
    3. Value of cereal production: Sum of estimated gross value for all cereals grown nationally
