Rice Cultivation Project Protocol Development
The Reserve began scoping agriculture protocols in October 2010 and began actively developing the Rice Cultivation Project Protocol in January 2011. The technical workgroup met from January to October 2011 to refine the draft protocol. A public workshop was held in late October to discuss the draft protocol which was available for public comment through October and November. The final protocol was approved by the Reserve Board on December 14, 2011.
