We're going to be in a lease for a second year in Missouri. The field was rice last year and definitely a bust (like most places). This year water stayed on the field until July or so and the farmer took an insurance claim rather than planting crops (would have been beans this year). The field is grown up in the best moist soil unit I've seen with a BUNCH of volunteer rice. Can it be bush hogged to get some open water visible? Again this field was not planted this year. I'd like to assume its just like any other field and can be cut without violating baiting law.
