Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Verification Program Update – May 20, 2011
Author: Kevin Lawson, Program Associate - Corn & Grain Sorghum Verification

All of the 2011 Corn Verification Fields are planted.  Planting dates stretch from March 21 to May 11.  Irrigation has begun on the fields in Chicot and Conway Counties and will start soon in Drew County if no rain is received.  Green County and Mississippi County verification fields received sidedress applications of fertilizer.

The Grain Sorghum Verification Fields are looking fairly good.  Woodruff County received a sidedress application of urea.  Atrazine will be applied to this field next week if conditions permit.   The field in St Francis County has received a sidedress application of each urea and Atrazine.  The flood water is receding in this field.
