H. Rouse Caffey Rice Research Station

Crop of rice in a large field.
Since 1908, the Rice Research Station has been conducting research and developing new rice varieties that benefit the rice industry in Louisiana and help put rice on the table for families around the world. Rice farmers themselves help support the station’s efforts through a check-off fee, which creates a fund distributed by the Louisiana Rice Research Board. The station covers about 1,000 acres near Crowley, La., and includes more than 30 acres devoted to research on crawfish. Some rice varieties are developed for crawfish forage for those farmers who double-crop.
