GALVESTON, Texas – Four LSU AgCenter scientists were honored at the 2016 Rice Technical Working Group’s meeting held March 1-4.
Steve Linscombe, Dustin Harrell, Don Groth and Eric Webster received the Distinguished Rice Research Team Award at the 36th meeting of the Rice Technical Working Group for their work to help farmers use the Clearfield rice technology.
More than 430 rice experts from across the U.S., and many from overseas, attended the conference. The RTWG meets every other year in a rice-growing state for scientists to exchange the results of their research and to announce new findings. The 2018 event will be in Long Beach, California.
