Welcome to the Valley Circles for Rice blog

center pivot on rice BrazilThe Valley Rice Team has developed this blog in order to better communicate with people interested in producing rice under center pivots or linears, whether farmers, developers, researchers, consultants - whoever has a passion for conserving resources and providing better management options for rice production.

We hope to update this blog weekly, and we welcome your comments and feedback.

Now for what is currently happening - The weather has not been helpful this week in either Brazil - to get the next rice crop under the center pivots planted - or in the US, to get the center pivots harvested.

The rice crop in Pakistan under the center pivot is developing well with the transplanted rice looking better than the direct seeded rice.
