Research is vitally important to the rice industry – so much so farmers, millers, & merchants pay for it themselves. Dr. Steve Linscombe, who knows rice research better than anyone, sits down with some of the most respected names in rice research: Drs. Dustin Harrell, Kent McKenzie, and Bob Scott, to talk about the impact research has had on the U.S. rice industry. California rice farmer Kim Gallagher also joins the podcast to share what research has done for her farm, her family, and her state.
