RICE

Rice is the oldest known cultivated food in the world tracing back to 5000 B.C. Rice is a dietary staple of more than half of the world’s population and is grown on every continent except Antarctica. In the United States rice is commercially produced, primarily in the states of Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and California--creating 38,000 jobs.
