Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Verification Program Update – August 9, 2019
Author: Chuck Capps, Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Verification Program Coordinator

By Chuck Capps, CGSRVP Coordinator

The Chicot County Corn Verification Field reached black layer (R6) this past Tuesday.  All but the Monroe and White County Corn Verification Fields will be at black layer by the weekend.  I will be working with the county agents next week to get corn stalk nitrate samples from those fields at or past black layer.  This will help to evaluate nitrogen rates applied based on soil test results.  These samples will tell us the nitrogen levels accumulated in the lower stalk allowing growers to adjust nitrogen rates accordingly next time the field is rotated back to corn.
