The USA Rice Federation has declared September to be National Rice Month. What better time to reflect on the importance of rice production to North America's waterfowl as early migrants wing their way to wintering areas across the country? Waterfowl flock to rice fields because they contain highly nutritious foods, including waste grain, weed seeds, and aquatic invertebrates.

DU works closely with America's rice growers through our USA Rice Federation–DU Rice Stewardship Partnership and through on-the-ground delivery of conservation in rice fields through DU's Rice Stewardship Program.
