Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Verification Program Weekly Update – April 16, 2012
Author: Arkansas Row Crops

The rain that the state received on April 15 was much needed on most of the corn fields.  Sidedress nitrogen was going out on several of the fields ahead of the rain.  The fields that are up and growing look good.  There were some cutworms found in the Prairie County field, but they were not at treatment level.  Herbicide and fertilizer applications will be the main focus this week.

Both grain sorghum fields received a much needed rain, and stand counts will be taken this week.  A few cutworms were found in St Francis County, and will be monitored.
