All 2020 crop rice delivered to PRODUCERS must be from fields planted with rice seed testing negative for the presence of genetically engineered (GE) material at a .01% sensitivity level with a 95% confidence interval. As part of the 2020 industry seed plan, members must be able to provide PRODUCERS upon request with the following three items: (1) Sales invoice from seed dealer showing lot number and quantity of negative seed purchased; (2) Copy of lab report showing seed lot planted tested negative for GE materials; and (3) FSA form showing 2020 certified rice acres.
The 2020 crop sign-ups are available to all members or farms that met their 2019 rice delivery commitment with PRODUCERS RICE MILL, INC. The number of rice acres a qualified member or farm can sign up on the 2020 rice crop is not limited. PRODUCERS’ members who did not grow any rice in 2019 or in recent years will be allowed to participate in PRODUCERS 2020 marketing programs. These members must have delivered rice to PRODUCERS the last time they grew rice and provide FSA-578 forms for documentation.
New Member Policy for 2020-21: Producers will continue its limited membership policy that was in place for the 2019 rice crop. In short, any new members that are tenant farmers may sign up any rice in 2020 farmed on land owned by landlords that are unlimited members of Producers. Any new members that are landlords may sign up in 2020 only if the land is farmed by a tenant farmer that is an unlimited member of Producers. To review the complete policy, please contact Members Records.
Failure to deliver: If a member fails to deliver the 2020 crop rice as originally signed up, that member will be ineligible to participate in PRODUCERS’ marketing programs beginning in 2021 and thereafter.
GREEN RICE: All green rice from eligible farms must remain eligible for CCC loan at the time of delivery to PRODUCERS. Thus, all members who deliver green rice to PRODUCERS cannot have taken loan deficiency payment (LDP) prior to delivery. PRODUCERS will handle all loan and marketing loan transactions. All marketing loan benefits will be credited to either the eligible seasonal pool or added to the price for those in the pricing pool.
DRY RICE: Freight cost, including fuel surcharge, will be paid by PRODUCERS UP TO 90¢ PER CWT. on all dry rice committed by June 30, 2020. Any excess freight cost, including fuel surcharges, totaling more than 90¢ per cwt. will be charged back to the account. Dry rice received during harvest will depend on the availability of trucks and adequate storage space. Rice will be picked up on a first requested basis. At PRODUCERS discretion, all dry rice committed may be shipped as needed to a facility other than the location designated on the member’s 2020 Rice Delivery Agreement. Dry rice not delivered to a PRODUCERS’ facility by December 31, 2020, may accrue daily storage based on a monthly rate of 3¢ per bushel beginning January 1, 2021. To be eligible for the on-farm storage, members must be willing to ship the on-farm rice at PRODUCERS’ request. Seed rice and seed remnants are not eligible for the storage. The moisture on all dry rice received must be 13% or lower. If the moisture is between 13.1% and 13.5%, drying charges and shrinkage will be applied to the farmer’s account. On rice received greater than 13.5% moisture, freight cost, drying charges, and shrinkage will be applied to the farmer’s account. Upon a member’s request, dry rice on the farm that is still eligible for CCC loan may be advanced at 90% of the measured bin weight once the green rice harvest is complete.
GRADING: The final grade for weed seeds, red rice and smut will be determined at the dryer or storage facility. The final grade for kernel damage such as heat, stain, and peck damage, will be determined by our rough rice lab as part of the milling yield analysis. USDA loan grade discounts will apply (Grades #1 & #2 – no discount; #3 - 13¢ per bu.; #4 - 27¢ per bu.; #5 - 45¢ per bu.; #6 - 90¢ per bu.; and sample grade - $2.48 per bu.).
ELIGIBILITY FOR LOAN BENEFITS: To be eligible for the marketing loan program you must report your rice acreage annually to the Farm Service Agency (FSA). Please make sure the ID number used on your PRODUCERS marketing agreement agrees with the number on your FSA-578 for the applicable farm. If there are any discrepancies with the FSA information or your farm is not certified, your rice at PRODUCERS is considered ineligible for government loan by FSA and will be placed in PRODUCERS’ world price pool.
NO GMO OR AROMATIC RICE: PRODUCERS will not accept any genetically modified (GMO) or aromatic rice such as Jasmine, Basmati, or other varieties for the 2020-2021 marketing year.
ALL 2020 CROP DELIVERY AGREEMENTS THAT HAVE NOT DELIVERED OR MADE ARRANGEMENTS TO DELIVER BY FEBRUARY 26, 2021, MAY BE CONSIDERED NULL AND VOID BY PRODUCERS RICE MILL, INC. THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RESERVES THE RIGHT TO WITHDRAW OR MODIFY ANY OF THE 2020 RICE MARKETING PROGRAMS.
