ARLINGTON, VA -- Farming is not an easy line of work and things don’t always go as planned, but as Henry Ford famously said, “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”  The question, as always, is what can we learn from those attempts that didn’t work the first time?

USA Rice will examine the bumpy road to success during the 2019 Outlook Conference with a session titled “Lessons from the Field:  Farmer Tales and Fails.”  A panel of growers will share experiences of times when they tried something, didn’t achieve the expected result, but turned what looked like a failure into a new cutting edge practice with the potential to save time and resources.

“This session celebrating ‘the good, the bad, and the ugly,’ along with the eventual success of new practices promises to be both humbling and enlightening,” said Betsy Ward, president & CEO of USA Rice.  “Hear from fellow farmers who have tried, and often failed, and are willing to share the details of how they worked through challenges to do something great.”

The USA Rice Outlook Conference is the largest rice specific event in North America.  The 2019 Conference will take place from December 8-10 at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock, Arkansas.  Check www.usarice.com/outlook for updates.
