Rainy Weather is Slowing the Rice Harvest

By Eric Zurnich, KATC-TV 3, Lafayette

For the last year Acadiana has been in a relatively wet pattern pushing back the entire rice process in 2019. Rice farmer Alan Lawson says "we weren't able to get the fall work done in the fields like we normally like to, it delayed the planting in the spring which is delayed the harvest until now, so it's a couple weeks later than we like to be."
