Listen: Waiting for rain: rice prices rise as Thai drought bites

Amid prolonged drought in Thailand, the latest S&P Global Platts Commodities Focus podcast investigates the damage to the country's vital agriculture sector. This has been most keenly-felt in the rice industry, and EMEA agriculture lead Robert Beaman discusses the latest developments in production and prices with rice expert Stephen Jones. They are joined by rice team manager Charlotte James and senior reporter Peter Storey, as well as Piero Carello, who highlights some surprising parallels with the situation in the sugar market.
