Wheat Research Verification Program Update for March 14, 2013
Author: Arkansas Row Crops

Wheat in the WRVP fields continues to progress, but a slow pace.  Much slower, in fact, compared to the unusually early crop we had last year.  While this year’s crop is probably some 3 weeks behind last year, it is actually more in line with historical trends.  Much of the wheat acreage in the state has only recently received the first application of N, but we have several fields in the program that have now received the second application.  A few fields have had herbicides applied for ryegrass and/or broadleaf weeds.  While stripe rust continues to be monitored closely, none of the WRVP fields have confirmed stripe rust.  We encourage you to scout fields weekly to this serious disease, and apply fungicides as needed.

CountyVarietyStageGeneral Information
ArkansasProgeny 870GS 5The field was drilled on beds on October 24. No weed problems are present. 125 lbs/A of urea + 100 lbs/A of ammonia sulfate was applied on Feb. 7, and an additional 125 lbs/A of urea was applied March 8.
AshleyTerral TV8861GS 6The field was drilled on October 30. Due to the variable soil type, emergence was slow and erratic. 125 lbs/A of urea + 100 lbs/A of ammonia sulfate was applied on Feb. 8. An additional 100 lbs/A of urea was applied last Wednesday (March 6), with a timely rain this past weekend for activation. No herbicides will be needed.
ChicotAgriMAXX 413GS 5The field was broadcast seeded on October 31. There have no major weed problems. Soil tests and plant symptoms showed a need for phosphorus, so an application of 125 lbs/A of urea + 100 lbs/A of DAP was applied February 7. An additional 150 lbs/A of urea was applied last Friday, March 8.
ConwayArmor RicochetGS 4200 lbs/A of urea + 100 lbs/A of ammonia sulfate was applied on March 5. 1 ¼ inches of rainfall occurred on Sunday for activation.
JeffersonSyngenta OakesGS 5-6The field was drilled on November 2. 150 lbs/A of urea was applied on February 7, and an additional application is planned in the near future. PowerFlex was applied at the first of December for ryegrass control. Results look to be near 100% control.
LafayetteTerral TV8861GS 7Broadcast planted on October 12 following a previous corn crop. Growth and development has been excessive all year. 55 lbs/A of actual N (32% UAN) was applied on February 20. We will determine if future N is needed when we scout later this week.
LeeArmor RicochetGS 3Axial XL + Harmony Extra was applied on March 9, and 90 lbs/A of urea is planned as soon as possible.
