Meet Keith Shelton, 2022 Rice Consultant of the Year

“In the heat of the season, you are racing the sun all day — leave before the sun comes up and get home after the sun goes down. It’s rigorous,” said Arkansas rice consultant Keith Shelton. “I head out between 5:30 and 6 every morning and get started after buying my gas and ice. I have a Can-Am Defender side-by-side, and, depending on the farm, stay on it for eight or nine hours before I get back to the truck. I have a regular schedule every week. I tell everyone that once I get into that pattern, you better set your clock by me.”
