Below-Average Season Expected For Wild Rice


September 7, 2018

The Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission is forecasting another below-average year for wild rice in northern Wisconsin.

The commission, which represents 11 tribes in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan, conducts aerial surveys of the crop each year in northern Wisconsin. Portions of Forest, Polk and Sawyer counties are experiencing a good yield for wild rice. But, overall, commission wildlife biologist Peter David said the crop appears to be less abundant this year due to heavy rains and high water levels.
