Arkansas Rice Update 5-29-15
Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

May 29, 2015                             No. 2015-14 Dr. Jarrod Hardke and Dr. Trent Roberts Crop Progress Yogi Berra would say this year is déjà vu all over again.  Here we find ourselves at the end of May with plenty of rice ready to go to flood.  Once again rice is nearing the end of the nitrogen application window […]

May 15, 2015                             No. 2015-12 Dr. Jarrod Hardke and Dr. Gus Lorenz Planting Progress More rain the forecast for an already wet year.  While we were getting in desperate need of the rainfall we received last weekend, it looks like we’re in line to receive more spread across the next several days about the time […]

Arkansas Rice Update 5-7-15

May 7, 2015                               No. 2015-11 Dr. Jarrod Hardke Planting Progress Never more than two weeks away from a drought.  That definitely seems true right now.  In the last 10 days, most areas of the state have gone from muddy fields, to dry and planting non-stop, to planting into dry soil. Many now find themselves in […]

May 1, 2015                               No. 2015-10 Dr. Jarrod Hardke Planting Progress We’re off and running now.  This week should mark the largest jump in planted acreage of the year.  Weather this week and into next week should be perfect for making progress.  In fact, some have made so much progress that they’re already looking forward to […]

April 25, 2015                              No. 2015-9 Dr. Jarrod Hardke Planting Progress Haven’t missed one yet.  This entire wet spring most conversations have ended on the same note – we’re due to miss a rain and when that happens it’ll be game on.  That just hasn’t really happened, particularly north of I-40.  In between showers the past […]

April 17, 2015                              No. 2015-8 Dr. Jarrod Hardke Planting Progress Hurry up and wait.  There was very little, if any, progress anywhere in the state this week.  The USDA progress report showed Arkansas at 21% planted – I’d say probably 45% of acres south of I-40 are planted and 5-7% of acres north of I-40 […]

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 […]

May 9, 2014                                 No. 2014-9 Dr. Jarrod Hardke and Scott Stiles Planting Progress Most people should be smiling right now – from the top of the state to the bottom.  This past week was probably the best one we’ve had so far this year in terms of conditions to get ground worked and crops planted.  […]

May 1, 2014                                 No. 2014-8 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Trent Roberts, Dr. Bob Scott, and Scott Stiles Planting Progress “It’s a boat!  It’s a plane!  No, it’s just someone trying to plant rice…” If 2010 and 2012 are the only recent years you can remember, then you probably feel like you’re way behind this year.  […]

April 25, 2014                              No. 2014-7 Dr. Jarrod Hardke & Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Planting Progress Better lucky than good? Some locations missed out on most of the rain on Monday and were able to keep rolling this week. The same thing happened again on Thursday, with some locations back in the field this morning and others […]
