The work of Randy Jemison, former Louisiana field representative for USA Rice will be continued by Kane Webb.“Randy was a tireless advocate for Louisiana’s rice farmers and the whole industry; we thank him for his years of service and we’re going to miss his work ethic, vision, and humor,” said Eric Unkel, a Kinder, LA rice farmer, president of the Louisiana Rice Council, and a USA Rice Board member.  “Kane’s work is cut out for him on a lot of fronts, but Randy is turning things over in good shape and we are excited to have Kane as our new representative.”Kane was raised on a rice and cattle farm south of Iowa, LA, and he is a graduate of McNeese State University with a bachelor's degree in agronomy,  and he was in the LSU Agricultural Leadership Development Program, Class VII.Kane knows rice, having begun his professional career scouting rice fields in south Louisiana for disease and rendering treatment recommendations, and then going to work for Helena Chemical out of Crowley, assisting rice farmers in Acadia and Vermillion parishes, as well as other areas of southwest Louisiana.
