2010-2011 Circles for Rice fields in Brazil have been planted and the new rice crop has begun to emerge. The crop is facing early season challenges, particularly weed control.
Fields are being planted in southern Africa, while fields in northern Africa will plan in December and January.
Plans are being made for a series of rice under center pivot trials.
For those of you planning to produce rice under a center pivot or linear for the next crop cycle, please be sure to consider the following:
- Seed selection for yield and disease resistance
- Weed control
- Fertility and nitrogen management
- Irrigation hardware
- Irrigation management
- Disease control
We are still gathering the last of the U.S. and Ukraine harvest data. As soon as we have that data analyzed and published the the web, I will post an update.
Is there a particular topic related to rice production under center pivots and linears that we have not yet posted on? Let us know!
