Furrow Irrigated Rice Publication

Furrow-Irrigated Rice

One alternative to traditional rice production is the use of furrow irrigated rice. Before considering this method of rice production, growers should be aware that currently furrow-irrigated rice is not eligible for crop insurance through USDA-RMA.

Before considering furrow-irrigation rice production growers need to consider several things such as cultivar selection, seed treatments, fertility management, weed and disease management to name a few.  Please consult the reference "Rice Information- Managing Furrow-Irrigated Rice in Arkansas" for more information.
