Siebenmorgen Recognized With Friend Of The Farmer Award

Terry Siebenmorgen, University Professor of Food Science and director of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture Rice Processing Program, is the recipient of the Riceland Foods 2012 Friend of the Farmer award.

Siebenmorgen has worked in the field of rice research throughout his almost 30-year career, with an emphasis on issues related to how the growing environment, drying and storage, as well as processing and transporting affect rice quality.

Danny Kennedy, Riceland CEO, said Siebenmorgen’s work, and that of his associates, has expanded the understanding of rice, which has benefitted everyone in the rice industry, including farmers, millers, marketers and food manufacturers who use rice in the production of their products. In the past, this award has been presented to a governor, U.S. senators and congressmen, as well as to CEOs of national restaurant chains and international food manufacturers.


New Weed Control Planning Tool

Created by BASF with input from farmers, the Advanced Weed Control tool combines maps and simple prompts to help farmers evaluate BASF weed control solutions based on their geography, weed pressure and crop. The tool currently provides information for rice, corn, soybeans, wheat and cotton and will be expanding into new crops in the future. This information is enhanced with informational videos from local agronomists and weed scientists to develop a comprehensive, sustainable weed control program. You can access the new site at advancedweedcontrol.basf.us.
