General objectives of the Rice Farming Systems program are:
- To develop and implement educational and applied research programs appropriate for the rice industries in Colusa, Glenn and Yolo Counties.
- To collect and disseminate relevant and current information that will improve rice production and maximize net farm income, while conserving natural resources and safeguarding the environment.
