Write-up taken from the IRRI's Rice Almanac (2013):


Fiji, a group of mostly volcanic islands in the South Pacific Ocean totaling 18,274 km2 in area, has a population of 0.87 million (2011). Arable land constitutes 16% of land area. The climate is hot humid tropical with a dry cooler season (May to October) and warmer wet season (November to April). Agriculture accounts for 9.5% of GDP and 50% of the workforce, mainly in sugarcane production. Rice has been grown for several decades and has become a staple. However, domestic rice production has gradually decreased while demand has grown; more than two-thirds of the rice consumed is now imported.
