LSU AgCenter Extension Agents in rice producing parishes conduct a survey every year to determine the rice varieties which are grown in their respective parishes.  The data is then broken down further into rice classes including long grain, medium grain, special purpose, hybrid, and Clearfield rice acres.  In addition, information about planting methods, reduced tillage acres, and ratoon rice production is included in the survey.  Graphical parish maps and pie graphs are also provided.  This information can be found on the LSU AgCenter’s website by clicking the following links: Tabular Data & Parish Maps or a complete summary by clicking the image below.
