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. 

Anyone interested in enrolling in the program should contact their local County Extension Agent.  Click here for county offices information.
