The rice season has started. If you drive around the valley you will see tractors working the ground, fields being flooded and airplanes flying seed. The UC Rice Project staked its first variety trial of the season today. It was the Glenn County variety trial. This trial has 104 10x20 feet plots. We will probably seed this location next week. This trial has varieties in the intermediate/late maturity group and it's planted in a M-401 field.
For previous results of the variety trials, check out the Rice Briefs Newsletter or the UCCE Colusa County Website.
