Unilever-University of Arkansas Rice Water Savings Demonstration Project

This is a two year project to test ways to reduce the irrigation water used per bushel of rice harvested on 10 farms in Arkansas. Opportunities exist to both reduce irrigation water applications (e.g., through tail-water recovery and land levelling) and to increase rice harvest levels (e.g., through a switch to higher-yielding or faster-maturing hybrid rice).
