Northeast Rice Research and Extension Center - Rice Discovery Experience

renderings of rice experiment station

This soon-to-be-built headquarters for The Northeast Rice Research and Extension Center is the newest research station in the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture and is dedicated to not only developing innovative and efficient agricultural research but also providing educational opportunities for youth and adults across the state. So much so that they have dedicated an entire wing of the research station to being the “Rice Discovery Experience."

What learning opportunities are included at the Research Center?

The educational portion of the research station includes a hands-on learning classroom with direct access to a greenhouse for year-round learning and is adjacent to a fully functional demonstration kitchen for cooking and tasting rice from around the world.

This window to the world of rice is designed to provide learning opportunities for students and adults throughout the Arkansas Delta and beyond.
