Arkansas Corn and Grain Sorghum Final Weekly Update 2014
Author: Kevin Lawson, Program Associate - Corn & Grain Sorghum Verification

Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Verification – Kevin Lawson (Corn & GS Verification Coordinator)

I would like to thank everyone that helped me with these updates this year. Wes Kirkpatrick, Kevin Norton, Brent Griffin, Michael Paskewitz, Branon Thiesse, Herb Ginn, Hank Chaney and Kevin VanPelt were the County Agents that contributed every week and were always on time and very informative.  Jason Kelley read and edited every update and I really appreciate his time on these updates.

The following table is the final yield information for the Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Verification Program this year. Greensnap from June storms reduced yields in four corn fields.  Estimated greensnap damage by insurance adjusters was 15% in Arkansas and Lonoke Counties, 25% in Mississippi County, and 48% in White County.   Fields without greensnap damage averaged 231 bu/acre. The final report will be published soon and will be available on www.uaex.edu and www.arkansascrops.com.
