The Guyana Rice Producers Association was established in 1946 through Ordinance #7 by His Excellency, the Governor of Guyana. .

The contribution of rice to the Gross Domestic Product of Guyana in 1994 was over 55 million US$ being almost equivalent to sugar and requires less foreign exchange for production and processing. The potential for this industry can be fully explored but sustainability remains with the farmers of Guyana.
