Two more fields were planted this week, which brings the total now up to 17. Rainfall was very sporadic with Prairie receiving .15” to 2.5” at Desha and Lincoln, which pushed initial irrigations for several fields, in south Arkansas, further than 10 days out. A couple more fields have moved to R2, full flower. Luckily, winds died down at the end of last week and over the weekend which allowed for needed herbicide applications. Refer to table below for field specific information.
