The corn fields continue to look good as the season is starting to come to a close. The fields in Conway and Mississippi Counties are on their last pivot turns. Both fields should only need two or three more turns of the pivot to finish them off. The field in Greene County is probably ten days from irrigation termination. The field in Lawrence/Randolph is still several weeks away.
The grain sorghum fields continue to look good. The field in Woodruff County was scouted again for worms, and the number decreased from last week. We will scout one more time and irrigate the field one more time.
