Manat Kitprasert, newly appointed president of the Thai Rice Mills Association, said 800 mills participating in the government's rice pledging scheme have very tight space now due to the massive flood of paddy from the previous season.

Participating millers now have combined capacity for only an additional 7 million tonnes of milled rice or about 10,000 tonnes each on average, he said.
