Provide early successional habitat between rice crop and ratoon crop to support important wildlife sources
If standing rice stubble from the first crop is rolled to push above ground stalks level with the soil surface, the first component of this type of habitat is met. When moisture is added to the situation, short-term habitat is available until the ratoon crop initiates growth to a height beyond that which would provide benefit to the early successional species.
