Valley Circles for Rice Update

Not much new this week from the production side - crop developing well under all of the pivots in Brazil. Soil moisture sensors indicate 15% or less soil moisture depletion. Harvest is underway in Pakistan.

Dr. Concenco is traveling to India to present an update on Valmont's rice project at the International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage meeting.

Jake traveled to east Texas and met with some rice farmers about the water situation with the Lower Colorado River Authority and then presented a paper on Rice Production under Mechanized Irrigation at the Irrigation Association Innovations in Irrigation conference.

Michelle Stolte is looking forward to meeting some of you at the USA Rice Conference next week in New Orleans.
