One more field got planted this week which brings the total to 18. There is one more that should be planted next week. As usual in Arkansas rainfall was very inconsistent, but all fields did receive some rain. Rainfall amounts ranged from .4” in Prairie to 3.2” in Conway and Pulaski. Looks as if irrigation will start next week for early planted southern fields as there is not much rain in the near-term forecast. Refer to table below for field specific information.
