Organic rice research moves to front burner in Texas

The rice variety also made a difference in yield when grown organically, Dou said.

While those findings were conclusive individually, Dou noted, there had not been research to determine how these practices impacted each other when applied together.

"With this research, we will look at the effect of cover crops, organic soil amendments and the variety of rice on yield, milling quality, soil carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas emissions," he said.

The second study will use $225,000 to examine the severity of disease in rice crops in Texas and South Carolina, specifically at the impact of dissolved organic carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous concentrations and salinity on water quality.

Dou said the researchers also will develop budgets to determine the best management practices to use to get the maximum economic return for the investment.

Both projects will be conducted through 2015.
