Arkansas Rice Update 7-3-14
Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

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 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 […]

June 21, 2013                             No. 2013-13 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, Dr. Bob Scott, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress We’re moving on up.  The rice is looking better and better from top to bottom in the state.  Warm temperatures and high humidity have most of the crop really moving in the right direction.  Some […]

June 14, 2013                             No. 2013-12 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, Dr. Trent Roberts, and Dr. Bob Scott Crop Progress “We’re having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave.”  Hot, but not quite that hot yet.  Warm, sunny, breezy days were just what much of the state needed this week.  The rice is starting to […]

Glyphosate drift on wheat
Author: Bob Scott, Professor & Extension Weed Scientist

Glyphosate drift from burndown fields to wheat is starting to show up in areas around the state. The photo (right) shows typical symptoms of wheat that likely recieved a drift rate of glyphosate sometime after panical initiation. Note the short flag leaf and the chlorotic (yellowish to white) bleaching at the base of the flag […]
