Rainfall ranged from zero at several locations to 1.9” at St. Francis. Insects overall remain at low levels, however Prairie was treated for corn earworms this week and Miller had to be re-treated for red banded stink bugs due to re-infestation from neighboring field. Diseases, so far, have not been an issue in program fields. Irrigation has now been terminated in Jefferson, Desha and Lincoln with Arkansas and Ashley set to receive their final irrigation next week. Refer to table below for field specific information.
