That looks like the lot at Producers Rice Mill with Riceland
Foods in the back ground. :-) Do you farm near Tollville?

No, I don't farm.I work at Producers.
I grew up on a rice farm as a kid.

Why are the trucks so backed up? Is this the only place to
unload? Does take an exceptionally long time to unload rice
off a truck? Was the elevator shut down for maintenance?

Re: Rice trucks waiting to unloaded
No break down. Just a large influx of trucks at harvest
time. We have 4 dumps,unload about 350 trucks a day. Farmers
harvest rice at a fast pace. This is normal for our rice
harvest. Lasts about 3 weeks, then it slows down.

Thanks for the reply. We harvest wheat in western kansas.
When it is wheat harvest time the elevators get a little
backed up as well, but nothing like that unless they are
broke down.

Thanks again for the photos, it is fun seeing how other
crops are processed. It looks like cutting wheat and
cutting rice are similar process'. When do you
plant/drill/sow wheat?

Re: Rice trucks waiting to unloaded
Wheat planting happens in October for winter growing.Or late
September.
Rice and wheat harvest are similar. Rice yields lots more
than wheat. Rice fields have small levees in them for the
watering of the crop. Combines cross over them with ease. On
some farms, the fields are precisioned leveled needing no
levees or very few straight levees. Thanks for the interest.

Sorry, I meant to ask when do you drill/sow/plant rice? My
mistake. Thanks again for the info.

Re: Rice trucks waiting to unloaded
Rice is planted in April and May.The fields are preped by
first discing,then floating the ground with a land leveler.
This makes a smooth surface,breaks clods,and fills in any
minor low areas. Usually,a field cultivator or triple k plow
goes ahead of the drill. Then rice is planted with a
drill.After drilling, levees are surveyed on the contour of
the field for proper water depth throughout the growing
season. Nylon gates are installed to hold the proper water
depth.
Hopefully, I will have some pics of rice planting in the
spring.
