A woman works at a paddy field near Pelling in the Indian Himalayan state of Sikkim October 12, 2009. Food commodities prices are likely to stay firm and volatile in the medium term, with a repeat of the 2007-2008 price spikes seen as a realistic possibility, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organisation said on Monday. Graphics published in the report showed prices for commodities such as wheat, rice, oilseeds, raw and refined sugar were expected to hold above pre-2006 levels through to 2018.
