Firstgrain publishes the following services: The Firstgrain Rice Market Strategist, Firstgrain
Special Reports and Daily alerts distributed by Constant Contacts services. The strategist covers
all rice markets around the world and all varieties of rice traded between countries and in the
US domestic market. Special Reports cover separate events and trends that stand to impact
market prices over the immediate or medium term. In addition to newsletters and alerts, we do
from time to time webinars published via Zoom and Youtube videos as “learning moments”.
Our rice advisory service includes phone access to Firstgrain staff using tweeter, text messaging,
Linkedin and Facebook. We stay connected with our rice customers through surveys and on site
visits to their operations. Our customers include rice farms, firms throughout the rice marketing
chain such as millers, both private and cooperative, cash brokers, exchanges and regulators as
well as milled rice buyers and major grain trading companies. We look at the world through the
lens of rice, relating interest rates, currencies, other grains and political and climatic events to
rice over time.
