• National rice meeting features educational program, trade show
The USA Rice Outlook Conference will be held Dec. 7-9 in Austin, Texas. The program will cover the U.S. rice situation and outlook, including farm policy and market outlooks, state production outlooks, and state and national research reports.
“This meeting is an important forum on rice issues and provides an excellent opportunity for farmer-to-farmer networking,” said USA Rice Federation Chairman Jackie Loewer, a rice farmer from Branch, La.
The annual rice outlook conference is an educational service of the USA Rice Federation for farmers from all rice-producing states and allied segments of the U.S. rice industry. It includes a trade show for rice-related equipment, technology, products and services.
