Arkansas Soybean Research Verification Program Weekly Update – September 16, 2011
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

We have a couple of fields being harvested and 1 expected to be harvested next week. Irrigation has been terminated on all the full season fields. We have a couple of double-crop fields that we are still irrigating. Insect pressure was low this week in all but 1 field that required a looper application.
