The rice agriculture and conservation communities have a mutually beneficial and long-lasting relationship with shared interests in habitat management for wetland-dependent birds, sustainable rice production and conservation of natural resources such as soil and water. In 2013, the USA Rice Federation and Ducks Unlimited came together to form the USARF-DU Stewardship Partnership. The Partnership works to bring about meaningful and long-term improvements to three of the nation’s critical natural and economic resources: waterfowl, working rice lands and water.

To achieve these objectives, we will identify and pursue public policies, funding sources, communications strategies and strategically developed research and management practices that advance their mutual interests. The Partnership serves as a model of cooperation and communication between a farm group and a conservation organization.
