ARLINGTON, VA – The latest issue of the Whole Grain, USA Rice’s newspaper, is off the presses and on its way to readers throughout the six rice producing states and Washington, DC. The Spring edition is packed with great stories, including a profile of Texas rice farmers Tim and Lindy Gertson, an update on conservation programs, and a look at the important South Korean and Colombian markets.
Louisiana contributor A.J. Sabine shares thoughts on the Rice Leadership Development program and his classes’ time in Washington during the USA Rice Government Affairs Conference; we visit the set for the taping of the Sara Moulton TV show about rice and crawfish; and had an exclusive sit down with House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway (R-TX) in which he talked about lessons learned in the 2014 Farm Bill process that he is carrying forward into the next Farm Bill, the fight to make production agriculture relevant to every American, and even the Presidential race.

As USA Rice encourages the U.S. government to file a trade case against competitor nations, Whole Grain readers will get a look at what’s involved in seeing one of those cases through, and much more.
