Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Verification Program Weekly Update – June 25, 2012
Author: Kevin Lawson, Program Associate - Corn & Grain Sorghum Verification

Corn – All the corn fields continue to receive irrigations and progress through the reproductive stages.  Southern Rust was found in Prairie County, but at a very low level.  Only a couple of pustules were found.  Recommended to watch the field and see how the disease progresses in this dry weather pattern.

Grain Sorghum – Both the grain sorghum fields have flowered and are moving to grain fill.  Scouting for head worms will be very important over the next couple of weeks.  So far, both fields have been clean. Irrigation continues on the Desha County field.  The St Francis County field is non irrigated and needs a rain soon.
