October 2, 2015          2015-29 Dr. Jarrod Hardke Crop Overview Rice harvest for the state should exceed the 80% mark this week.

September 5, 2015                     No. 2015-27 Dr. Jarrod Hardke Crop Overview Harvest weather may be just about perfect, but the results leave a lot to be desired.

July 31, 2015                              No. 2015-23 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Scott Stiles, & Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress It’s a good indication of the recent high temperatures when 91 degrees feels like a cold snap.  The greatest thing about our current weather change isn’t just the reduced daytime temps making it easier on us, but the reduced […]
