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.

After the rain

Rice seedlings received a welcome dose of rain, 1.35 inches to be exact, on Monday. More rain is expected Wednesday as farmers work to get their crops planted. Shown above  are rice seedlings in the wet soil.

 In the picture below, Bill Leonards, Rice Research Station farm manager, takes measurements to repair a plastic fitting in the blog field.
