Rice will grow just fine in damp soil. The only reason it is flooded is to keep it weed-free. So, only need to maintain 3 or 4 inches of water.

I am having trouble finding it . I watched rusty creasy videos. I tried calling every distributor for that Horizon ain’t got a call back yet. I found a place in South Carolina that has a 3 way blend that it’s supposed to be good

Doves also like rice. Red Rice is sub-standard in rice farming and the farmers will go around occasional patches of it when harvesting. Then they go in once it's dry and burn it to avoid future contamination. One of the best winter Dove shoots I've ever been on was in Arkansas in January after they had burned several patches of it.

I got a little from Hancock seed last year. They had a method for planting it in the shallow water of a pond . It involved first soaking the seed in water and then a few days in a damp burlap bag, and then spreading it into the shallow water and the mud bank. It didn't work. It could be that I didn't do something right, or my pond wasn't suited in some way. I had always wondered if I could get any to grow in it, and now I know. smile

Hope you can have better luck with it.

Rice seed is in very short supply this year. Rice is very easy to grow but you have to have the right situation to grow it. As PCP said, the easiest way is to soak the rice seed and cover it till it “pips”(little white sprout”. Dread the rice seed in very shallow water and let the water on it for a few days until the seed pegs(sets a little root). Here’s where the problem for most is. You have to drain all the water off the seedlings to let the ground firm so the root will set and hold the seed. Once this happens you can either just let the plant grow as is and wet the “rice” occasionally if there is no rain to do it for you or as soon as you see the small green “pin” looking leaf on the seed, you can put a very shallow flood on the rice. This method takes really level ground to do. The plants will just grow up through the shallow water and after a few weeks it will begin to tiller. After about 6 weeks you will need to top dress with 100-150lbs/AC of a high nitrogen fertilizer. 46% urea is the go to here. Keep flooded till plants reach maturity and then flood as deep as you feel you need to. Also if you really want to do it right, y’all to your banker and see if he’ll back you to purchase the high $ herbicides to keep weeds and grasses out.


It's hard to kiss the lips at night that chews your a$$ all day long.

I have always just planted with a grain drill in a well prepared seed bed. I'm planting 12 acres tomorrow. I usually spray it with propanil later on for weed control and hit it with nitrogen. It's not been hard for me. I'm in coastal SC. I've never soaked the seed or heard of anybody doing it around here. We plant it for ducks.

Sounds like you were planting rice the way it's supposed to be done. Let me explain that I was trying to grow it by seeding into the shallow water of a pond. I don't have a reasonable way to control the water level, so all I could do was broadcast the seed and hope that the method would work. It didn't, but I thought it was worth a try.

Well got all fields dry and most of them sprayed. Fixing to finish spraying tomorrow and start planting. It is hard to compete with the big dogs here in Jackson county . Several land owners around me are going all out this year on food we shall see what happens. I don't think we will ever see the glory days of the 70s and 80s again just to much competition that have deep pockets. We got corn,rice,beans,jap millet,and grain sorghum. If we don't kill ducks I can always enjoy the doves, deer, then turkeys that should be fat
