The lice crop of the United States
has recently expanded with great
rapidity nnd has become one of our
important corral industries. Rice
v ns grown on the James Ri.er, Vir
g'mia, r.s early as ll1(5, since which
time it h:s devi loped s inlhward and
west wtird in North Carolina, SiuUi
Carolina, Georgia, Fl'rida, Alabama,
and Mississippi. The total annual
product of that region, however, did
not, make the industry, common kill v
speaking, nn hnnmtnnt crop. The
aiois used for ibis crop were, for
the niovt, part, lowlands, known as
bottom lands, which demanded an
expensive method of culture.-. The
area in those States has decreased
during the past twentv yours to loss
than one fourth of its former "xtent
and is now less than 10 percent of
the entire area devoted to rice in
the United States.
The dt velopment of tho roe indus
try of the coastal prairies of south
west Louisiana and southeastern
Texas be trail in Lnuision about 1 lie
year 1S8.", when sottle-s from tho
grain prodneting Middle Western
States found that they could apply
the modern cultural implements and
harvesting machinery used in the
wheat fields of (he WeFt to rice cul
turo on the flat prairie lands of
southwestern Louisiana. Experience
brought about improvements yrar
after year. Croat pumping plants
were eree'ed upon the rivers and
streams, nnd extensive systems of
overland canals with their laterals
were built for flooding the rice fields.
Settlers came from the North in
increased nutnbeis, and the cheap
prairie lands rtf Acadia, Vermil'ion,
and Calcaseiu parishes of Louisiana
which a few years before were
regarded worthless for agricultur
al purposes nnd used only for graz
ing cattle, became fields of rice.
About the vear 1803 the tide of
imigrntion from the North began to
set in toward southeastern Texas,
where simikar Conditions for success
ful rice growing were found in the
coastal region of that State. The
industry continued to' spread until
the history of development in Loui
Mnna had repeated itself in about
twenty counties of Texas, which,
together wi:h the three parishes in
Louisiana, now define the limitations
of the rice belt in a stretch of prairie
country interspersed by timber lands
on the rivers and streams, lying (iO
to 80 miles inland from the Gulf of
Mexico, between Lafayette, La., nn
the est and Victoria, Tex. on the
west, a distance of about 300 miles.
Tn this area, which is all at. an
elevation o'f from 10 to (50 feet 'above
the sea level, and easily drained,
tev may be from 5.000,000 to 10,
000,000 y,e res of land susceptible of
development in the profitable pro
duct inn of rice according to modern
methods. Of this, about half a million
ncres ate at present planted to this
The rice prerequisites for success
ful rice growing according to modern
methods, which have thus far been
found to obtain only in the belt above
1. Land slightly sloping toward a
s ream or the gulf, anil thus suseep
tilde of irrigation and drainage.
2. Subsoil of clay near the surface
for retention of water, nnd a soil firm
enough to bear up the heavy harvest
ing machines in reaping.
3. Abundance of fresh water to be
obtained from streams and wells.
4. A climate where the temper
ature never falls below (10 degrees
Fahrenheit from planling to harvest.'
The United States Department of
Agriculture, recognizing the inmor
tance of this growing industry and
the absence of any scientific liuht to
guide the farmer, b"gan in 18015 to
make its influence felt, in many use
ful ways. About that year the De
partment of Agriculture commis
sioned Dr. S. A. Knanp, of Lake
Cha'les; La., to visit Japan. China.
airl East India to m'tWe a study of
rice and report to this Government.
Dr. Knanp spent narlv n vear in
those countries', making exhaustive
resi arches, with the result that the
celebrate 1 Ivishiu, or Japnnrice, was
inti'iduced into this country, and
bulletins were published bv the Tie.
pariinent giyii f, information- about
tho rice crop.
The Department, through the
Ruivau of S iils the Hureau of Eiitomo
y, the (5 ireau of Statistics, anp
the Ollico of Experiment Stations,
as well as the Bureau of Riant In
dustry, has since madt investigations
along uuinerous lines both in the old
Rice Production in
rien district on the Atlantic coast
and in tt:e south Texas distiict.
Notwithstanding the grent'y in
creased production of rice during
reef nt years in the United States,
f-ircign rice still enters our maikets
in appreciable quantities, though
mostly of the grades known as broken
rice, brewers' rice, and rice flour.
Our exports of rice, aside from ship
ments to noncontiguous territory of
he United Slates, the Hawaiian Is
lauds, Porto Rico, and Alaska, are
small. S iino lower grades were ex
ported during a brief seaon of iov
prices in 1!04 and a part of 10O5.
The per capita consumption of lice
per annum in the United Slates is
now about i pounds. In rJJdil was
estimated at only about 3 pounds,
showing a wo:.derful increase. In the
oriental countries where rice is the
chief article of food the per capita
consumption of rice varies between
300 and 400 pounds per annum.
Tiie uve rage price paid farmers
for their paddy rice isl to 2J cents
per pound, and the averaga retiiil
price for mill rice is from 5 to 10
cents per pound. With an extension
of the area and with still further im
provements in varieties and methods
of producing, nulling, and trans
portation, rice will eventually become
much cheaper to the general public.
