The University of Arkansas Rice Research and Extension Center (RREC) is located nine miles east of Stuttgart
on Highway 130, in the heart of the famous Grand Prairie rice-growing region. The first land acquired for the Center was deeded in 1927, when a group of farmers and the UA recognized the need for locally-conducted rice research. Subsequent land acquisitions were added to what is now 1,022 acres devoted to research in rice and rotation crops such as soybean and wheat. In combination with the USDA/ARS National Rice Research Center located next door, the RREC is the largest rice research location in the U.S. and is well known worldwide. Students, interns, and research and industry professionals visit frequently, staying from a day to a few years.
The 2013 Arkansas Rice Expo will be held August 2, 2013 at the Grand Prairie Center located on the Phillips Community College, University of Arkansas on Highway 165 south of Stuttgart. Registration begins at 8:00 am.
