LSU AgCenter taking advantage of Puerto Rican rice nursery
The L-S-U AgCenter says a year-round rice nursery in Puerto Rico used by L-S-U and other colleges is enabling faster releases of new rice varieties.

The AgCenter set up the nursery in Puerto Rico because of the constant warm weather.

Rice breeder and AgCenter regional director Steve Linscombe says it enabled rapid availability of a new rice variety, Trenasse, which was released this year for seed production.

Without the nursery, he said in a news release, it would have been next year before the variety was released.

The AgCenter's rice nursery, in the Lajas Valley of Puerto Rico, has been instrumental in the release of several widely used varieties of rice.

Linscombe also oversees the AgCenter's Rice Research Station at Crowley.

The L-S-U AgCenter established its nursery in the early 1970s in a cooperative agreement with the University of Puerto Rico. Fifty-five acres is available for growing rice. So others have joined in the cooperative endeavor. They include the U-S Department of Agriculture, Texas A-and-M, the University of Arkansas and Mississippi State University and several agricultural companies.
