Rice an important crop for Arkansas producers, world: Part II

In the general scheme of things, rice is a relatively small crop in the United States. But it is extremely important to producers in Arkansas and the five other states where rice is grown. That’s why Rep. Rick Crawford is not above using all manner of tactics – including sending members of Congress Rice Krispy treats to remind them about U.S. rice. He discussed the U.S. rice market and other topics at the Arkansas Rice Annual Meeting in Jonesboro, Ark.
