I am in the process preparing an area to plant a small rice field next year. What kind of suggestions do you have for someone doing this? Do I need to plant the area dry and flood it gradually as the rice grows? Also, I am planting in gumbo, do you have any suggestions on this? The area I am planting is about 1/2 acre, from your post, it seems that your area did not hold up too long, what is the minimum area that you would plant if you had to do it again? How deep is the water where you planted?
Thanks for the post.
