Links are provided below for grain yield and milling yield performance of rice cultivars in the Commercial Rice Trials (CRTs) and planting date studies.  All data presented is from small-plot research trials.  These studies are funded by the rice farmers of Arkansas administered by the Arkansas Rice Research and Promotion Board.

Both links contain the same data, but the first is a PDF file and the second is an Excel file.  The data is presented in two different formats based on stakeholder requests for viewing the data.  This data is considered preliminary until the final report is published the first week of December.  If you have any questions, please let me know.
