Restoring profitability in rice farming through improved management ii. rice farming for profit



Restoring profitability in rice farming through improved management ii. rice farming for profit



Journal of Agronomic Education 17(1): 10-12



Rice Farming For Profit (RFFP), a nine-step rice (Oryza sativa L.) production self-help management program designed to increase profit potential, was utilized by 255 producers in Arkansas [USA] in 1985 and 1986. The crop management recommendations in the RFFP program were designed to emphasize production practices that are most likely to be succcessful and profitable each year. The production practices concept was based on the principle of cumulative effects from proper timing and effectiveness of inputs. Special emphasis was given to minimizing cost in six production technology areas for wich an extensive data base had been developed through research. These areas were: seedling rates; weed, disease, and insect control; fertilization; and irrigation pumping. The combination of high yhield and lowered production costs increased net income for this group by an estimated 1.8 million dollars over budgeted production costs and state average yields. The RFFP program demonstrated that current technology for profitable rice production does exit. The success of the rice growers involved in the program was primarily due to an increase in management intensity, which surviving rice farmers should utilize during current economic conditions.
