About 340,000 acres of land in the Florida Everglades, Louisiana river parishes, and Puerto Rico are well suited for rice production. If the areas were fully developed, approximately 200,000 acres could produce a crop annually, with 30,000 to 40,000 acres in Puerto Rico producing two crops. The acreage most likely to be developed would depend on farm prices. It ranges between 90,000 and 160,000 acres, with crops of 5 to 9 million hundredweight of rice. The impact of this production on supplies of and prices received for U.S. rice would be comparatively minor.
