In other words, assuming a 50 pound bushel (IAnd I know it is probably not!), that is abou 120 - 140 bushels per acre.I read where rice in Texas produced between 6000 and 7000 pounds per acre. That makes about 7 or 8 lbs per square foot if I did my math right. For your families own use, the container idea might just be a good one. You could plant just a few square feet and feed them all year! Now ya'll got me thinking!
yup, had already looked into them for seeding wild rice around our pond. Turns out that our spring-fed pond is too cold for wild rice to germinate there. If cress will grow then wild rice will not, according to the very nice people at wildlife nurseries.Heres a company that is in your state that sells the seed for wild rice. although I bought some from Bobs red mill that sprouted just fine.
