ARLINGTON, VA -- The U.S. rice industry continues to show great leadership when it comes to sustainable food and agriculture. More and more companies and organizations within the rice industry are making public commitments and investing in projects that take on-farm conservation efforts from dream to reality.
On this week's episode of The Rice Stuff podcast we hear about two different projects focused on just that. Adam Shea of Riceland Foods talks about his company's commitment to water savings and bringing value for their farmer members, while Cody Corbell of Indigo Ag and Bill Jones of Anheuser-Busch talk about their project to implement technology and practices that save water on-farm with their growers.
"There are so many great sustainability initiatives happening in the U.S. rice industry right now, and it was exciting to hear about these two new projects and what the companies implementing them see for the future," said Lydia Holmes, USA Rice director of industry affairs & sustainability and co-host of the podcast "Our guests this week bring views from across the supply chain and years of experience working with growers on these practices. We talk about what's working now, what we hope to see in the future, and how can we measure use of the rice industry's most important resource, water."
