June 19, 2015                             No. 2015-17 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Yeshi Wamishe, and Scott Stiles Crop Progress Much needed rain has hit a large part of eastern Arkansas over the last two days.  However, southeastern Arkansas is still hoping for some irrigation-saving rain.  The extended forecast is calling for highs in the low-to-mid 90s and lows […]

June 5, 2015                               No. 2015-15 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress It’s June already?  Some locations received heavier rainfall than others last weekend, so progress this week has been highly variable across the state.  The one positive is that a great deal of drying is going on everywhere.  In […]

September 12, 2014                   No. 2014-27 Dr. Jarrod Hardke and Scott Stiles Crop Progress “You are not alone.”  That’s probably my most repeated phrase lately.  Meaning you’re not alone in your yields being lower than expected.  It’s been a common theme lately and a lot of calls are to confirm that people didn’t do something wrong […]

September 5, 2014                     No. 2014-26 Dr. Jarrod Hardke Crop Progress Harvest seems to be a roar in some places and a whimper in others.  Combines are in the field wherever you go, but progress is up and down by location in the state.  Some places have trucks piling up, while others are just really getting […]

August 29, 2014                         No. 2014-25 Dr. Jarrod Hardke & Dr. Gus Lorenz Crop Progress Progress!  Rain chances throughout the week largely failed to materialize.  With the rain skipping out, many more combines have hit the fields, at least in the Grand Prairie.  Plenty of other fields are nearing that time, but the high humidity and […]

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 […]
