Southeast Texas is teeming with rice fields, but many local residents have never been afforded the opportunity to explore what really goes on at the vast acreage properties – until now. During a free program that also features a complementary barbecue lunch courtesy of the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center at Beaumont, guests will have the chance to learn first-hand processes and see the work that goes on behind the scenes at “Texas Rice – Embracing Innovation,” the center’s 72th annual field day on Thursday, July 11.
