The Missouri Rice Research Farm has 110 acres of fine textured soil eminently suitable for rice production. The farm is partitioned in paddocks that may be further partitioned for individual experiments requiring different watering regimes. The farm has a computer monitored weather station providing continuous measurements of solar radiation, atmospheric and soil temperatures, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, and rainfall. Centrally placed wells provide water to the individual paddocks.
