Rice Update for Center Pivots and Linears

The continuous wet conditions in Brazil have slowed field application of fertilizer, as not all farmers with center pivots are setup to use the pivot to apply their nitrogen.  Using the center pivot or linear for fertigation is a very cost effective and environmentally friendly method of applying the rice's nitrogen needs.

Planning continues in the United States for the 2010 rice crop and the Valley Rice Team is excited about the prospects!

I have not received an update on the rice project under linears in Africa, but I hope to have new information next week.

The next week will be busy as the holiday season is upon us.
