Late season options 2017-18
Late season options
A lot has changed since the Rice Extension pre-season meetings where we discussed planning. Lack of rain and small allocation increases have been the biggest changes and a combination that most growers would not have planned for.
This has resulted in many growers irrigating winter crops with their allocation and carryover water, leaving less water available for rice. The other change is the temporary water price.
