Rice

Rice is one of the major crops grown in the Sacramento Valley of California. Aproximately 500,000 acres are planted yearly.

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.
