Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

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 […]

August 15, 2014                         No. 2014-23 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress Harvest!  Actually received word of some rice in the state being cut this week.  Many more fields are being actively drained, and all signs point to the pace picking up.  Rain this weekend and early into next week […]

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 […]

August 1, 2014                           No. 2014-21 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, & Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress “It’s like déjà vu all over again.”  Yogi Berra could have just as well been describing the weather this season.  It does look as though we haven’t a positive change on the horizon for the next week.  We’re forecast […]

July 18, 2014                              No. 2014-19 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, Dr. Yeshi Wamishe, & Scott Stiles Crop Progress Record-setting low temperatures are the story of the week.  Records were set both for nighttime lows and daytime highs.  Combined with more rain and flash flood warnings it hardly feels like the middle of July in […]

July 11, 2014                              No. 2014-18 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, Dr. Bob Scott, & Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress Frank Sinatra had “the world on a string.”  If he were in charge of the weather these days, it would be a Yo-Yo string he had ahold of.  Up and down we go, temperatures and […]

July 3, 2014                                No. 2014-17 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, Dr. Bob Scott, & Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress More record-breaking rainfall this week.  I don’t see anyone standing up to collect a medal for it though.  The majority of rice has reached the reproductive stage and midseason fertilizer applications are being made. Few […]

September 12, 2013                    No. 2013-25 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress Many growers are continuing to make quick work of harvest these days.  The majority of yield numbers coming in are 180+ bu/acre with most numbers in the 200+ range.  Difficult to be unhappy with those kinds of yields.  […]
