Greetings from Louisiana rice country! This year, the blog will concentrate research conducted at the LSU AgCenter Rice Research Station, in addition to showing the progress of a 6-acre field of rice planted March 19 to produce foundation seed. We encourage your comments and thoughts to help improve this online tool. If you would like a photograph of a particular piece of equipment or a better explanation of a process, let us know.

The blog field was harvested Thursday (Aug. 26) with a yield of 47.2 barrels per acre (170 bushels or 76.4 hundredweight), according to Larry White, director of the LSU AgCenter. The field of medium-grain rice was cut at 17 percent moisture.

Next year this same field will be fallow.
