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.
