The Rice Research Board has provided monies for an AgCenter Communications project to develop a research report highlighting board-funded projects. This publication serves as a report to rice producers about the results from LSU AgCenter projects that their check-off dollars funded. It also serves as a marketing piece for the board and rice industry.
