Rice Field TrunkThe Ricefield Trunk is a device installed in an embankment used to surround and create an area with a controlled flow of water for growing rice. In early America, slave labor brought the knowledge used to make rice a profitable and productive crop in South Carolina. The floodgate devices were installed with human labor working with the tides to create the perimeters for the ricefields. Today the southern plantations still maintain the ricefields in order to maintain their property lines. The ricefields today are used for hunting migratory birds.
