the market extended its three-day rally on concerns that weather-related

horror will cut into production, dealers said.

in heavy rains and flooding, and is expected to cause extensive damage

to crops in Australia and Asia.

Dealers said rising food prices due to the La Nina horror was fuelling inflation fears.

to RM3,646 a tonne, March 2011 increased RM60 to RM3,620 a tonne and

April 2011 gained RM63 a tonne to RM3,593 a tonne.
