RTWG Conference

Mississippi State University is pleased to host the 2020 Rice Technical Working Group Conference. The Rice Technical Working Group (RTWG) meets at least biennially to provide for continuous exchange of information, cooperative planning, and periodic review of all phases of rice research and extension being carried on by the states, federal government, and cooperating agencies. It develops proposals for future work, which are suggested to the participating agencies for implementation.

The conference will be held at the Perdido Beach Resort in Orange Beach, Alabama. Situated directly on the Gulf of Mexico in Orange Beach, Alabama, Perdido Beach Resort is exclusively located near Alabama Point, locally known as “The Pass,” where the Intracoastal Waterway meets the deep waters of the Gulf. Our beachside Orange Beach resort hotel is also near Gulf Shores, AL, a popular Gulf Coast destination.
