Upcoming Rice Field Days

There are two upcoming Rice Field Days titled “Designing Texas Rice for the Future,” and they feature a lot of information for Texas producers.  As always there will be lots of general information on rice production but specifically there will be a look at the future of rice breeding.  Whether conventional or organic, rice breeding work holds the keys to our future and these researchers are working hard to overcome nutrient deficiencies, disease and insect pressure, yield, and more.

Eagle Lake Field Day, Tuesday, June 28 starting at 4 pm.

Beaumont Field Day, Thursday, July 14 starting at 8 am.
