Louisiana Rice: Yields Still Great But Slip A Bit

Last week in Louisiana, we saw rain showers pop up almost every day. We also saw a few more powerful storms move through in some areas helping nudge some of our rice to lodge. Voluntarily reported rice yields still look strong; however, a slight declining trend in the reported yields can be seen.

Weather this week is much improved as compared to last week and once idle combines are now running from the time the dew dries until it comes back in the evening.
