SAN ANTONIO, TX – A copy of the Fall 2017 Whole Grain, USA Rice’s newspaper, will be waiting for you at the registration desk at the USA Rice Outlook Conference here this weekend.  And if you can’t make the conference, check your mailbox for the latest issue as it’s hot off the presses and on its way to readers throughout the six rice producing states and Washington, DC.  

“Our theme is innovation and the centerpiece of this issue is The Rice Foundation, what someone called the industry’s best kept secret,” said Whole Grain editor Michael Klein.  “Well, we’re hoping to shed some light on ‘the most innovative rice organization you’ve probably never heard of’ by showcasing the research The Rice Foundation fosters that benefits the entire U.S. rice industry.”

You’ll also learn about the practical side of innovation from a profile of the Durand Family from St. Martin Parish, Louisiana, whose willingness to explore new avenues of production improves soil health and also improves their bottom line.

There is an interview with U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, an in-depth look at the many September National Rice Month (NRM) activities including the recent Farm & Mill Tour in California, an interview with the grand prize winner of the NRM scholarship video contest, and much, much more.

If you do not receive the Whole Grain in your mailbox, or you’d like additional copies to distribute to friends, neighbors, and colleagues, or you would like to advertise in future issues, contact Lesley Dixon.
