New Rice FactSheets now available

New Rice FactSheets now available

By Whitney Brim-DeForest, UCCE Rice Advisor, Sutter, Yuba, Placer and Sacramento Counties

The UCCE Rice Team has developed a series of FactSheets to simplify and convey information about important topics that we find we are frequently discussing with growers and PCA’s. Each fact sheet is two-pages long, back to front. There are 6 so far: Nutrients in Rice Grain and Straw at Harvest, Managing Potassium in Rice Fields, Stem Rot and Aggregate Sheath Spot of Rice, Kernel Smut of Rice, Growing Season Water Use in California Rice Systems, and Managing Rice with Limited Water. We are continuously in the process of developing more topics, so if you have suggestions, please reach out to Luis Espino (laespino@ucanr.edu) or Whitney Brim-DeForest (wbrimdeforest@ucanr.edu).
