Rice Production in Florida: A Handbook
We wish to thank Florida Rice Growers Inc. and UF-IFAS for providing support and sponsoring Annual Rice Growers Training events.
This is a Rice Handbook that covers topics related to rice production in South Florida, specifically in the Everglades Agricultural Area. With rice acreage and production on the rise in the past ten years it is important to formulate information that researchers, growers and public can use related to rice production. Some of the topics covered in this handbook include rice variety trials, water management, nutrients, pest and disease management, and information related to post-harvest processing. The information provided in the handbook will be updated annually to include new topics with the help of UF-IFAS faculty and extension agents.
