August 22, 2014                         No. 2014-24 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress The heat is finally here.  And so is the humidity.  Fields that have been drained and are waiting on harvest are having a hard time dropping in moisture.  A few fields are actively being harvested, but it’s slow […]

Rice research verification program update for August 11, 2014
Author: Ralph Mazzanti, Rice Research Verification Coordinator

Cloudy conditions and rain showers continue to make their way in the forecast. The overcast weather and below average temperatures have some fields 7-10 days behind the DD-50’s. Heat units are desperately needed in the late planted fields. In some fields uneven heading is making fungicide timing very difficult.  Herbicide drift from Gramoxone has shown […]

August 8, 2014                           No. 2014-22 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress Rice fields are actually being drained.  It has taken us seemingly forever to get to this point, but here we are.  Plenty of fields still have a long way to go (Table 1), but it’s still a good […]

Rice research verification program update for August 4, 2014
Author: Ralph Mazzanti, Rice Research Verification Coordinator

Lower humidity and temperatures during heading and grain fill should help yield and quality.  The overcast and cooler weather has slowed the progression of the verification fields in some cases.  Some fields tend to be 7-10 days behind while others are right in time with DD-50.   The Jefferson County field was treated 7/15 for […]

August 1, 2014                           No. 2014-21 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, & Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress “It’s like déjà vu all over again.”  Yogi Berra could have just as well been describing the weather this season.  It does look as though we haven’t a positive change on the horizon for the next week.  We’re forecast […]

July 25, 2014                              No. 2014-20 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, Dr. Bob Scott, & Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress The weather and its effect on the rice crop is becoming a daily roll of the dice.  The up and down temperatures are playing games and the rice doesn’t seem to like it.  Last week, […]

Disease alert: Rice blast throughout Arkansas
Author: Yeshi Wamishe, Extension Rice Plant Pathologist

The weather this season is favorable to cause a blast epidemic. Get ahead of the disease! Rice blast pathogen spores can easily move across a field and/or from a field to another by wind. Clay, Randolph, Lawrence, White, Prairie, Lonoke, Woodruff, Monroe and Arkansas Counties have all had reports of rice blast largely on Jupiter followed […]

Rice research verification program update for July 18, 2014
Author: Ralph Mazzanti, Rice Research Verification Coordinator

South Arkansas: The cooler temperatures during heading and grain fill should help yield and quality. On the other hand, rainfall and overcast weather can alter flowering and is a favorable environment for disease.  The Jefferson County field is at ½” internode and was treated for FAW numbering anywhere from 8-25 per sq. ft.  RSB are […]
