Your Rice Research Board continues to function well. The new legislation passed last spring, which makes the checkoff mandatory with no referendum but with a refund provision, is in effect.
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.
