Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

May 29, 2015                             No. 2015-14 Dr. Jarrod Hardke and Dr. Trent Roberts Crop Progress Yogi Berra would say this year is déjà vu all over again.  Here we find ourselves at the end of May with plenty of rice ready to go to flood.  Once again rice is nearing the end of the nitrogen application window […]

Rice Preflood Nitrogen Management Issues
Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

For many rice fields, options are running out for preflood nitrogen (N) applications.  It’s time to play the hand we’re being dealt with no time to wait for new cards.  Last year we encountered similar problems, but no one was prepared to see a repeat of those prolonged wet and cool conditions.  In some ways conditions […]

Managing Ammonia Volatilization Losses from Urea in Less than Ideal Conditions
Author: Trenton Roberts, Research Assistant Professor, Crop, Soil & Environmental Sciences

It’s that time of year again. Time to apply sidedress N to corn and grain sorghum and apply preflood N in rice. Unfortunately the weather has not been as cooperative this year as many of us would have liked, but there is still time to make the best out of a bad situation. If the […]

May 21, 2015                             No. 2015-13 Dr. Jarrod Hardke and Scott Stiles Planting Progress Progress slowed over the past week with the return of wet weather.  Private estimates now peg Arkansas rice acres at 1.425 million, down from 1.441 forecast by USDA in March (and 1.45 by me at the same point).  Given conditions and the […]

Rice Research Verification Program Update – May 15, 2015
Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

South Arkansas: Three fields Chicot, Desha and Arkansas Counties have received N-STaR fertilizer applications and are being flooded. The Jefferson County field is cracking and all other fields are from 4 leaves to tillering stage. A low uneven hybrid stand (1 leaf – tillering) in Chicot County made it difficult for management decisions. Pre-emergence herbicides […]

May 15, 2015                             No. 2015-12 Dr. Jarrod Hardke and Dr. Gus Lorenz Planting Progress More rain the forecast for an already wet year.  While we were getting in desperate need of the rainfall we received last weekend, it looks like we’re in line to receive more spread across the next several days about the time […]

Arkansas Rice Update 5-7-15
Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

May 7, 2015                               No. 2015-11 Dr. Jarrod Hardke Planting Progress Never more than two weeks away from a drought.  That definitely seems true right now.  In the last 10 days, most areas of the state have gone from muddy fields, to dry and planting non-stop, to planting into dry soil. Many now find themselves in […]

Sunshine and warm weather finally has rice moving. Pre-emergence herbicides have been activated and continue to control grasses, sedges, broadleaves and aquatics. Post-emergence herbicide applications will start […]

Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

May 1, 2015                               No. 2015-10 Dr. Jarrod Hardke Planting Progress We’re off and running now.  This week should mark the largest jump in planted acreage of the year.  Weather this week and into next week should be perfect for making progress.  In fact, some have made so much progress that they’re already looking forward to […]

Arkansas Rice Update 4-25-15
Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

April 25, 2015                              No. 2015-9 Dr. Jarrod Hardke Planting Progress Haven’t missed one yet.  This entire wet spring most conversations have ended on the same note – we’re due to miss a rain and when that happens it’ll be game on.  That just hasn’t really happened, particularly north of I-40.  In between showers the past […]
