The class also visited Anheuser-Busch, the largest domestic user of rice; Creed Rice Inc., where alumnus Michael Creed explained the role of international brokers; and the offices of the US Rice Producers Association.

In Louisiana, the class toured the Louisiana State University Rice Research Station, where alumnus Dr. Steve Linscombe summarized the latest rice research.

The Rice Leadership Development Program is sponsored by John Deere Company, RiceTec Inc. and American Commodity Company through The Rice Foundation and is managed by the USA Rice Federation.
