Corn and Grain Sorghum Irrigation Termination
Author: Jason Kelley, Wheat & Feed Grains Extension Agronomist

The end of the irrigation season is in sight for many of our early planted corn and grain sorghum fields.

October 31, 2014                       No. 2014-30 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Trent Roberts, & Scott Stiles Harvest Summary The end is near or is it here?  Harvested acreage numbers on Monday were 95% so we’re right there.  Overall a difficult year that most are glad to see in the rearview mirror.  There’s not a lot of time […]

September 30, 2014                   No. 2014-29 Dr. Jarrod Hardke and Scott Stiles Crop Progress Overall, yield reports seem to be improving.  Some areas are extremely excited over this crop, with yield levels not seen before.  Others have yields they would just as soon not see again.  Sometimes these areas are not too far apart. Average yields […]

September 19, 2014                   No. 2014-28 Dr. Jarrod Hardke Crop Progress This may be (?) the last weekly rice update of the year.  Additional updates may be published if needed.

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 […]

September 6, 2013                      No. 2013-24 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress Seeing trucks stacking up at the mill is an easy giveaway that harvest is picking up steam.  It’s becoming common that I hear people with high test weights (45-47 lbs/bu).  Trucks get heavy really fast with test weights […]
