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.

Corn and Grain Sorghum Irrigation Termination
Author: Jason Kelley, Wheat & Feed Grains Extension Agronomist
