USA Rice - Ducks Unlimited Rice Stewardship Partnership
Rice Stewardship's vision is to conserve three of the nation’s important natural resources: working ricelands, water and wetland wildlife. Ensuring adequate supplies of water is fundamental to sustaining the future of rice. And more than three million acres of rice across the country provide not only a working wetland that grows crops and food to feed the world, but also a very valuable habitat for waterfowl. This effort combines public and private resources by harnessing the power of USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service, and their Regional Conservation Partnership Program.
