Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

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 […]

Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

April 17, 2015                              No. 2015-8 Dr. Jarrod Hardke Planting Progress Hurry up and wait.  There was very little, if any, progress anywhere in the state this week.  The USDA progress report showed Arkansas at 21% planted – I’d say probably 45% of acres south of I-40 are planted and 5-7% of acres north of I-40 […]

Author: Yeshi Wamishe, Extension Rice Plant Pathologist

About the Disease Bacterial panicle blight (BPB) is an important disease in Arkansas rice that has caused huge losses over the years, including 1995, 2010 and 2011.

August 8, 2014                           No. 2014-22 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress Rice fields are actually being drained.  It has taken us seemingly forever to get to this point, but here we are.  Plenty of fields still have a long way to go (Table 1), but it’s still a good […]

April 4, 2014                                 No. 2014-4 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Rick Norman, Dr. Bob Scott, and Scott Stiles Planting Progress I’m guessing around 5% of rice is in the ground to date.  Most of it is isolated in places that have lucked into dry conditions.  A number of fields went in early this week ahead of […]

August 23, 2013                          No. 2013-22 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress Let it drain, let it drain.  Field draining seems to be picking up speed these days.  Not only that, but the first fields began to be harvested early in the week.  Limited yield comments so far, but what […]

This week’s weather has seemed like a blessing with […]
