Due to the excessive and record-breaking rainfall that occurred early Sunday morning, many fields in an area covering Prairie, Woodruff, Jackson, Monroe, St. Francis, and Cross Counties have been flooded or are still under water.  Currently, we are estimating that 100,000 acres of soybeans will need to be replanted, with many more soybean fields receiving […]

Soybean research verification program update – June 13, 2014
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

Rainfall prevented the planting of the remaining 4 verification fields; hopefully we will dry out and get them planted next week. The later planted fields started showing signs of saturated conditions (yellowing of the plants) this week.  These symptoms should go away as the fields start to dry out and get more oxygen into the […]

Peanut acreage report and a reminder for growers: Check for nodulation
Author: Travis Faske, Extension Plant Pathologist

Early season estimates indicate ~10,000 acres of runner peanut were planted in 2014 in Arkansas.  Estimates were based on grower acreage commitment to one of three peanut companies: Birdsong Peanut, Clint Williams, and Golden Peanut.  Total acreage was slightly less than projected and ~2,000 less than 2013.  The decline was related to lower peanut prices […]

Recent storms that have rolled through the state have unfortunately brought high winds with them. I’ve gotten several calls about corn that has snapped and corn that has been blown over. Green snapped corn and corn that has blown over are two different problems, although most of the time you will have both problems in […]

Striped corn leaves could indicate deficiencies
Author: Leo Espinoza, Associate Professor & Extension Soil Scientist

We have had reports of several visual nutrient deficiency symptoms in corn. First, we need to remember that plants use energy to uptake nutrients, so under cool or wet conditions plants may not uptake some nutrients and may show deficiency symptoms that will go away as soon as conditions improve. If conditions improve and symptoms […]

Soybean research verification program update – June 6, 2014
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

Despite the rainfall events we were able to get all but 4 verification fields planted. The fields that are up look good and appear to be handling the saturated conditions well. Herbicide applications continue to be a priority as the fields dry out to try and keep weed pressure under control. Insect and disease pressure […]
