Summer has finally arrived, and many rice field days have been scheduled to showcase the latest information in all areas of rice production. Go to the Rice Farming home page and look under “Events” to see where and when they are being held this year. The men and women involved in the preparations to make sure everything runs smoothly have worked very hard to make these field days worth your while to attend. Kudos to all of them!!
Rice field days not only are opportunities to gather good information but also a time to take advantage of the camaraderie of others involved in the rice industry and enjoy a good meal at the end of the sessions. Many field days also feature interesting guest speakers. Obviously, you are busy, busy, busy during the summer months, but, if at all possible, try to take off a few hours to attend a rice field day in your area. It’s always worth it.
