RiceTec hosts virtual field day that includes behind-the-scenes views

RT7521 FP

RT7521 FP was one of two FullPage hybrids that will be commercially available from RiceTec for the 2020 season. The company showed it off at their field day last year.

Early in the growing season, RiceTec began producing a back-up plan for their traditional field day by recording the season. The result is a series of videos at https://fieldday.ricetec.com that provides some behind-the-scenes views, such as hybrid seed production, that field day attendees normally wouldn’t see.

The videos include topics such as:

• A message from RiceTec’s Global CEO

• Celebrating 30 years of RiceTec and longtime customers

• Row-rice production system

• Herbicide-tolerance solutions

• 2021 product offerings

• SmartRice and water management

• Hybrid seed production

Viewers will hear from RiceTec’s Global CEO Mike Gumina and see familiar faces from the company, growers, consultants and other industry-related representatives.

The compilation will allow growers to view the videos in separate segments that are important or relevant to them. Growers who complete the series will receive a special gift from RiceTec. The videos are free, but you must first register to view them at: https://fieldday.ricetec.com/dashboard.

“Getting creative with RiceTec’s 2020 Field Day is a testament to how we aim to be innovative in all we do,” said Van McNeely, U.S. director of sales and technical service. “As much as we’ll miss seeing the growers and networking in person this year, we are excited that these videos capture much more detail within the entire growing process.”
