Case study - Bill Barnhill - Consistent results with organic rice

Growing organic rice is a lifestyle choice for Bill Barnhill. He started growing organic rice in 1986. Over the years, he has perfected his management practices and has achieved impressive results with consistent yields between 7-8 t/ha. In 2017/18, the crop yielded 8.8 t/ha and at the price of $750/t he achieved a very profitable gross margin of $380/ML.
