SS653/SL439 by Jehangir H. Bhadha, Luigi Trotta, Daniel Cavazos and Matthew VanWeeldenApril 12, 2023Rice production in the Everglades Agriculture Area (EAA) of Florida dates back nearly seven decades.

This fact sheet provides a history of rice production in Florida and information about rice varieties grown in Florida.
