What are the pros? Healthy plants, abundant rice
What are the cons? Hulling the rice.
I wanted to give rice a try out of curiosity. I have to plant everything in raised rows because of our rainfall (over 80 inches last year). I did not put this in a row but rather left a low spot. It grew beautifully. I had a large crop of rice grains but could not de-hull them. It did not go to waste...my chickens were very happy. The best part is that the left over grains in the rice plot attracted some new wild birds which found the rice a treat.
