B.R. Wells Arkansas Rice Research Studies

The B.R. Wells Arkansas Rice Research Studies is published by the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture annually and funded by the checkoff. The series serves: i) as an annual report to assess the progress of proposed research, and ii) as an outlet for rice scientists to publish their research while it is in progress and to publish applied research that is important to the successful production of rice in Arkansas, but not always publishable in the more rigorous refereed scientific journals. Much of the research discussed in the Wells series is funded in part with checkoff dollars.

Arkansas Rice Production Handbook

The Arkansas Rice Production Handbook is published by the University of Arkansas and funded by the checkoff. The handbook contains recommendations on all aspects of rice production including planting dates, seeding rates, fertilization, irrigation, and disease and pest management. Many of the recommendations in the handbook are a direct result of checkoff funded research.

Agricultural Economists with the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture, in an project funded by the checkoff, create annual enterprise budgets that are flexible for representing alternative production practices of Arkansas producers. Budgets are prepared for conventional, hybrid, full-page hybrid, Clearfield, and Provisia production systems.
