Father of the Arkansas Rice Industry

In 1897 on the NW 1/4 Sect. 8 1N 7W Fuller planted the first rice on the Grand Prairie. The venture failed. Having learned about rice production in Louisiana, he returned for more information. In 1903 he returned to Lonoke County. The citizens of Carlisle and Hazen agreed to pay Fuller $1000.00 for a successful rice crop. In 1904 he harvested 5,225 bushels from 70 acres. The rice industry was born. Fuller died in 1909 and is buried beside his wife in the Carlisle Cemetery.
