Weather doesn’t dampen interest in 2014 Rice Field Day

A group of farmers, rice industry personnel and Rice Research Station personnel gather to await the beginning of Rice Field Day activities Wednesday. The annual event showcases the advances in rice farming as well as provides useful information across the field concerning the industry, legislation and more.

With light rain falling here and there, you might expect the turnout for the 2014 Rice Field Day at the LSU AgCenter Rice Research Station.
