Arkansas Soybean Research Verification Program Weekly Update – September 11, 2011
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

We are nearing harvest on a couple of fields, while others still are a long way away.  Irrigation continues on all fields except for the Drew and Chicot locations, although we have some fields that are approaching irrigation termination. Insect pressure was low this week but cercospra leafspot was observed in the northern part of the state.
