For the last few years, multiple areas throughout the South, but especially south Louisiana, south Arkansas, and northeast Arkansas, have been in a crisis mode dealing with ALS-resistant weedy rice and grasses. The Provisia® Rice System was developed to address this crisis as well as to extend the life of Clearfield rice.The Provisia® Rice System is the ideal companion system to the Clearfield® Production System for rice, providing farmers with another effective tool to manage weedy rice, including rice volunteers that are resistant to herbicides like Newpath® herbicide and Beyond® herbicide, red rice and also multi-herbicide-resistant grasses.

PVL03

THE LATEST AND GREATEST VARIETY FOR THE PROVISIA® RICE SYSTEM

A new varietal release for the Provisia Rice System, PVL03 offers advantages over earlier Provisia long-grain varieties, with outstanding yield potential, milling and grain appearance. It has both Pi-ta and Pi-ks genes for industry-leading blast resistance. PVL03 gives farmers unmatched ability to control and proactively manage against the development of resistant weedy rice, red rice, and grasses, by planting PVL03 and the Provisia Rice System in rotation with soybeans, Clearfield® rice and conventional rice varieties.

  • ‡This variety has genetic markers for Pita, which confers resistance to the following blast races: IA45, IB1, IB49, IB54, IB45, IH1, IG1, IC17, IE1.
  • *Reactions may differ due to variability of strains among pathogens.
  • **Blast Resistance Spectrum Characterization - Broad: Contains blast resistance gene(s) known to give resistance across most common blast races.

*Reactions may differ due to variability of strains among pathogens.

  • 1 Seed /lb is not an exact number; it is an average from multiple samples harvested over a wide geography.
  • 2 Seeding rate is a suggestion based on drill-seeding in ideal conditions and fungicide/insecticide treated seed. Planting non-treated seed is not recommended. Seeding rate should be increased by a minimum of 10 lbs/A when using non-treated seed, planting into a rough seedbed, water-seeding, high pH soils and soils with salinity issues.
  • 3 Nitrogen rate is a suggested rate based on a two-way split nitrogen application with the first application being applied on dry soil.
