Cache RiverValley Seed will offer the following
rice varieties for the 2013 planting season:
· Earliest maturity of any Clearfield® variety
· Excellent vigor with high-yield potential
· Outstanding grain quality and milling
· Ideal for early planting and to stagger harvest timing
· Excellent yield potential
· Excellent vigor and good disease package
· Management practices similar to Wells
· Traditional height: ideal for use in fields with multiple or stacked levees
· Highest-yielding inbred variety on the market
· Good grain quality and milling
· Susceptible to blast: not recommended for fields with a history of blast or water issues
· Do not over-fertilize: CL151 uses N very efficiently. The NSt*R program is recommended where available, and may help reduce nitrogen input costs and improve disease control
· Superior lodging resistance
· Quality similar to CL111
· Good seedling vigor and tillering
· Do not over-fertilize: CL152 uses N very efficiently. The NSt*R program is recommended where available, and may help reduce nitrogen input costs and improve disease control
· Excellent seedling vigor
· Ideal on soils with history of stand problems
· Improved standability
· Good yield potential with large grain size
· First Clearfield® medium grain release
· Good yield potential
· Excellent milling and cooking quality
· Kellogg’s preferred medium grain
A very short season, semi-dwarf, long-grain rice variety with good yeild potential that has similar height and lodging resistance as cocodrie but is less suceptible to straighthead.
A very short season, long-grain with excellent yield potential, susceptible to rice blast and very susceptible to kernel smut. It is the best long grain for high pH and salt soils of NE Arkansas west of Crowley’s ridge but should not be stressed for water due to blast concerns.
A high yielding, semi-dwarf medium grain variety developed by LSU. Jupiter has a good disease package, displaying good resistance to blast, panicle blight, sheath blight, and straighthead. It has shown good seedling vigor and milling quality. The grain size of Jupiter is somewhat smaller than Bengal.
Roy J is a long grain rice that has excellent yield potential, excellent straw strength, and good tolerance to sheath blight.
A short season, long grain with excellent yield potential, average to good milling quality, large kernel size similar to Lemont, but is susceptible to rice blast. Only moderately susceptible to kernel smut and most other diseases and is the most widely adapted long grain rice in Arkansas.
Rice Seed Production Rice seed is planted by only the top seed growers in our area. Production fields are monitored throughout the growing season by our Agronomist and Seed Certification Manager for off-types, red rice, and other noxious weeds. As a general rule, all certified seed is rogued 3 times and all registered seed fields are rogued 4 times.
CRVS Conditioning Process Step 1: The seed is conditioned using a Cimbria Delta 108 Seed Cleaner.Step 2: After the cleaner, the seed is then processed over and LMC Gravity Table. Step 3: Our rice seed is then run through Carter Disc Machines to remove cracked seed. Step 4: Long grain rice is then run through a precision grader to insure against medium grain, off-types and red rice.
Seed Treatments Cache River Valley Seed offers funigicide seed treatments such as Dynasty, Apron and Maxim to protect the yield potential of the seed after it is planted. Giberellic acid (Release) and zinc seed treatments are also offered.
Packaging Cleaned rice seed is packaged in 50 lb. paper bags, 2025 lb. (45 bushel) bulk bags, and stored in bulk bins. Sorting rice in bulk bags allows us to keep more cleaned seed on hand for faster load out time.
Final Certification The Arkansas State Plant Board pulls a 4 pound sample from each lot and checks for germination and purity. NO RED RICE can be found in this sample in order for it to make Arkansas Certified quality.
Did You Know? If your rice seed contains 1 red rice in a 4 pound sample, planted at a rate of 3 bushels per acre, you would plant over 33 grains of red rice per acre. Each grain could produce 12 tillers per plant @ 150 per head for a total of approximately 59,400 seeds per acre in the first year and over two million per acre in the second year. The Arkansas State Plant Board has found that less than 1% of all cleaned certified rice samples contain barnyard grass but that 50% of all rough samples are found to contain barnyard grass.
Arkansas requires a 4 pound sample for each lot of cleaned seed. The state of Mississippi only requires a 1 pound sample for testing. This means that Arkansas has 4 times as much rice which could be milled and checked for red rice and off-types. All seed rice for sale, both rough and cleaned seed, must have a complete analysis that includes a purity and germination.
