Fall-seeded wheat generally does not require N fertilizer for establishment. Fall-applied N or preplant N can aid in the establishment of wheat under specific planting conditions and crop rotations, but should be managed on a case-by-case basis. Previous research has suggested the need for fall-applied N to help compensate for the large amount of crop

Harvest is starting to get going in the central part of the state. For the most part it’s isolated to early-planted fields. Yield reports continue to be very positive – almost all have been over 200 bu/acre dry.

Soybean rust was found yesterday, August 7, for the first time in Arkansas this year. U of A Program Technician Amanda Greer made the discovery in a commercial soybean field at growth stage R5 near Halley in Desha Co in Southeast Arkansas. This is the same county in which SBR was first detected in 2012.

Arkansas just received a Section 24(c) Special Local Need label for aerial application of Capreno and Halex GT herbicides in corn. This will hopefully help those producers who have been unable to get into the field with ground rigs due to frequent rainfall. Keep in mind the corn growth restrictions. Any tank mixtures with atrazine

Stripe rust is still increasing on susceptible varieties at locations where it blew in during the spring. The most susceptible varieties are Arcadia, Progeny 117, Progeny 185, and USG 3993. Except for a few fields, stripe rust does not appear to be having a significant impact on yield because of adult-plant resistance and one or

There have been numerous reports of wheat stripe rust from eastern Arkansas, and the levels are much higher that at this time last year. Varieties most frequently reported to have stripe rust include Ricochet and Beretta that account for a significant portion of the wheat acres. In past years, these varieties were susceptible early and

Judging by the number of calls I have received this morning, it looks like we will be re-planting a good bit of the March planted corn. I realize that the calendar date has everyone concerned, but there is no need to panic, we haven’t missed a crop yet, and bad decisions now will lead to

It sure seems that the weather pattern is stuck in winter instead of spring over the last couple weeks. Much of the corn that has been planted in Southeast and Southwest Arkansas has not emerged, even though some has been planted 3+weeks. The cold weather this week will also slow emergence and growth even more.
