Welcome to Rice County.
Your local Extension Office is a great resource for finding the information that you need. Have a gardening question? Check out our Lawn and Garden area. If you are interested in joining 4-H or being a volunteer, our 4-H and Youth area has all of the information you need to get started. Check out the Crops and Livestock section. Health and Nutrition features a wide variety of resources for food preparation and safety. You will want to check out the information found on our Home and Family and Community Development sections, as well.
It is once again time to control Volunteer Wheat! This needs to be done at least 2 weeks prior to wheat planting and will help mitigate problems with Hessian Flies, Wheat Curl Mites, Wheat Aphids (Russian, Bird Cherry-oat, Green Bug, etc.) and diseases.
