Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Verification Program Weekly Update – July 15, 2011

All of the corn fields are now in reproductive stage.  The field in Chicot County has had the water shut off, and the field in Drew County should be done after one more irrigation next week.  Conway County and Mississippi County are at R5 and the starch line should be moving soon.  We could be done with those fields in about two weeks.

The grain sorghum fields continue to look good.  St. Francis County received the last rain that it should need to make it to the end of the year.  The heads are starting to turn color, and there are very few worms.  The field in Woodruff County is heading unevenly, and we continue to scout for worms.  The number has been coming up with every scout, and we are up to around 1 per head right now.
