Rice County

Crops and Livestock

Rice County farmers grow 286,820 acres of wheat, corn, grain sorghum, soybeans, sunflowers, and hay with approximately 127,000 acres of pasture. The diversity of soil type and moisture make crop production a challenge.

Rice County Extension delivers educational programs and information to help increase the efficiency and sustainability of Rice County farms. We are here to provide "Knowledge for Life" by answering all of your agriculture related questions.
