Reviewing the 2016 Arkansas Rice Season
Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

Planting and Progress The 2016 rice season began extremely early as producers started planting as early as March 7th.  From there, a surprising number finished planting by April 1 and many more in the early part of April – in Figure 1, Week 15 is equivalent to April 15th.  For historical perspective, planting progress trailed […]

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 […]
