RiceTec’s virtual Arkansas field day goes live

Taking into consideration the health and safety of attendees, RiceTec released a video series of its typically in-person field day near Harrisburg, Arkansas.

The five videos ranging in topics can be seen at https://www.ricetec.com/virtual-field-day-2021/.

View the presentations from rice industry experts and RiceTec employees at your leisure. The program focuses on four key areas: new product offerings, herbicide tolerance, seed treatment and farm optimization, according to a news release.

Adama joined RiceTec to discuss the key aspects and results of trials for Max-Ace, HighCard and FullPage rice systems. Together, they announced two new FullPage products and a Max-Ace variety.

In the seed treatment video, viewers will hear more about how RiceTec is putting to use current research data to improve its Squad seed entrustment technology. The section on farm optimization includes the launch of a new digital application. Designed for farmers, it will help them manage and monitor irrigation, growth prediction models and weather.

Finally, RiceTec shares its 2022 product line-up with a range of offerings aimed to fit any acre in the rice industry. This includes the limited availability of two Max-Ace products and experimental lines: a non-pubescent product and a long-grain offering that is predicted to take yield to a new level and increase milling quality.

“While these videos focus on many of RiceTec’s key projects, there is so much more we had hoped to share in person, including many other agronomic studies now available through your local RiceTec representative,” Van McNeely, director of sales and tech services, said in the release. “We encourage growers to contact their representatives for private field tours and access to our line-up of extensive product information.”
