Dennis DeLaughter: What Could Possibly Go Wrong Now?

At last year’s Rice Market & Technology Convention, we asked the question: What could possibly go wrong? While we were right on many issues outside mainstream expectations, the last 12 months have seen some major changes in the world of rice that were not on anyone’s radar. That brings us to ask the question this year: What could possibly go wrong now

This year’s presentation will review the past year, look at the present economic conditions facing U.S. rice producers, and check our radar screens once again to see what we may be missing in 2024 in the ever-changing world of rice.
