Introduction

The Guyana Rice Producers Association was established in 1946 through Ordinance #7 by His Excellency, the Governor of Guyana. . The organization function is to promote, protect and advance the interests of rice producers. 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.

The development of the farmers could only be achieved if this organization the RPA is vibrant, well organized from the farm level through the community, regional and national levels. The Association presently has limited capability to execute its purpose and needs to develop its personnel and capabilities to be effective and sustainable. The major program of the association is The information and Transfer program. There are three others that are Representation, Rural Development and The Organization and Financial Management programs.
