Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

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 […]

June 27, 2014                             No. 2014-16 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, Dr. Bob Scott, & Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress The rice crop has been on the move this week.  Some rice in the state has begun to head, but most is right at midseason now with fertilizer applications going out. Disease and insects have […]

June 20, 2014                             No. 2014-15 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, Dr. Bob Scott, & Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress “How high’s the water, papa?” We don’t have all the rice flooded yet, but it hasn’t been for a lack of effort.  After all the rain received the first part of the month, it certainly […]

June 13, 2014                             No. 2014-14 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Rick Norman, and Dr. Bob Scott Crop Progress Progress?  What progress?  We’ve been in a standstill.  A rare June rainy season standstill.  I don’t believe I ever thought I’d say that. The recurring theme has been that it’s raining and supposed to continue to rain.  Days […]

June 5, 2014                               No. 2014-13 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Rick Norman, & Dr. Bob Scott Crop Progress What’s done is done and the future is now.  It’s possible someone was able to squeeze in a few more acres of rice this past week, but either way rice planting should now be complete. The real story […]

May 30, 2014                             No. 2014-12 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Bob Scott Crop Progress Most acres were probably in need of a rain, but maybe not the weeklong rain we have going on now.  It’s not over yet with more rain forecast through the weekend.  On a positive note, most of the […]

May 23, 2014                             No. 2014-11 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Bob Scott, and Scott Stiles Crop Progress I think we missed spring.  It feels like we broke out of winter straight into summer anyway.  I blame going from nights in the 40s a week ago to upper 80s and 90s now. In the past week, the […]

May 16, 2014                             No. 2014-10 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Trent Roberts, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress And the roller coaster weather continues.  We find ourselves back down into the 70s for a few days before we get back into the 80s and possibly hit 90 next week.  If you still have rice left to […]
