ON SUSTAINABILITY Can you remember the first time you heard the word “sustainability”? If you are like me, your mind went directly to, “Yeah, it means anything that keeps me doing what I’m doing.” Well, we live in a lot bigger world than just the world of rice farming. Just stand outside of a Walmart store pretending that you’re waiting for someone for a few minutes, and check out the diversity of the population in your own community.
The 2011 rice crop in Louisiana was better than average for many producers, but the year included problems with salt water, insects and milling quality for others.
