We are a day early on the update this week due to attending the Rice Field Day tomorrow at the Rice Research and Extension Center in Stuttgart. I would encourage you to attend as well to hear some of the latest in other crops you grow as well.
We have terminated irrigation on all our fields including the Cross County Grain Sorghum Verification field. With recent rainfall, we were able to skip what would have been the last irrigation on some of our fields. You may notice that the heat units are the same for some fields as last week. This is because we keep the heat units up to maturity at black layer (R6). This will probably be the last update until we have some yields and field economics to report.
