 RREC Mission

Our mission at the Rice Research and Extension Center is to improve rice production for Arkansas farmers through applied research and extension programs to develop sustainable systems that protect our natural resources, enhance the economy of Arkansas and provide a food product consumed worldwide.  

We are also home to the Rice Foundation Seed Center, which is being over seen by Dr. Glenn Bathke.



To accomplish this mission, our strategy is fourfold:

  • Variety development is the cornerstone of our research. Developing of new varieties is the most effective means to increase yield and disease resistance, and enhance the quality of the rice we produce while improving sustainability. Division of Agriculture breeding programs emphasize long grain, medium grain and hybrid rice varieties.
  • Recommendations for sustainable production are developed in conjunction with improved varieties. These include optimum seeding dates, seeding rates, optimum nutrient management practices, integrated pest management practices, and irrigation efficiency.
  • It is imperative that our recommendations offer the best opportunity for providing growers with profit potential. Economic analyses are conducted for all of our recommendations to ensure that farmers are likely to see a net return on investment.
  • The research conducted at RREC is conveyed to the farmers through Extension programs led by our faculty and staff. This is achieved through production meetings, field days, newsletters, publications, the internet and county Extension offices.

Driving directions:

From I-40, take Exit 193 at Hazen and head south approximately three miles to the intersection with Hwy. 70. Turn left and proceed east approximately 1 mile to the junction with Hwy. 63 heading south. Head south for approximately 23 miles to Stuttgart. On the north side of Stuttgart, turn left at the stop sign at the intersection of Hwy. 63 and Hwy. 165. Head east/southeast until you reach the traffic light. Continue through the traffic light heading south on Park Avenue. At the next traffic light at the junction with Hwy. 130, turn left and head east for approximately nine miles to the intersection of Hwy. 130 and Hwy. 153. The Center is on the right just prior to this intersection.

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.

All projects have very close working relationships with the greater rice industry. Research is funded in part by the Arkansas Rice Research and Promotion Board.
