Rice Research Verification Program Update – July 12, 2019
Author: Ralph Mazzanti, Rice Research Verification Coordinator

By Ralph Mazzanti and Ron Baker, Rice Research Verification Program Coordinators

In the south, the Jefferson County field has reached 50% heading stage. Stink bugs are building rapidly with first heads popping. Sheath blight is also building in some fields yet has not reached threshold levels. As of now, none of the fields have met the qualifications for smut prevention treatment. Desha and Lincoln have been sprayed, fertilized and are now flooded.        

In the north, as we’ve reached high temperatures and canopy close, sheath blight is confirmed in several fields yet is well below treatment thresholds so far. Randolph will be the first field to head having reached late boot early in the week.
