The Rice Research Verification Program started in 1983 and the Arkansas Rice Research and
Promotion Board helps fund the program through a rice checkoff program.
2018 is the 35th year for the program. Through the 35 years, 479 rice fields have
been enrolled in the program. The five year (2011-2015) average yield for the rice
verification fields is 182 bushels per acre. The state average for that same 5 year
period is 163 bushels per acre.
