Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Verification Program Weekly Update – July 16, 2012
Author: Kevin Lawson, Program Associate - Corn & Grain Sorghum Verification

Corn – Corn fields are getting close to R6 and beginning the dry down to harvest.  Irrigation has been terminated on all the fields except the two later planted fields.  Rains scattered across the state helped on decisions to turn off the water.

Grain Sorghum – Headworms are still light in the grain sorghum fields.  We will continue to scout this week, but this should be the last week that they will cause a threat.  The field in Desha County continues to get rains that should let us terminate irrigation there.
