Arkansas Rice Update 7-25-14
Author: Jarrod Hardke, Rice Extension Agronomist

July 25, 2014                              No. 2014-20 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, Dr. Bob Scott, & Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress The weather and its effect on the rice crop is becoming a daily roll of the dice.  The up and down temperatures are playing games and the rice doesn’t seem to like it.  Last week, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

August 30, 2013                          No. 2013-23 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress Harvest is starting to get going in the central part of the state.  For the most part it’s isolated to early-planted fields.  Yield reports continue to be very positive – almost all have been over 200 bu/acre dry.  […]

August 23, 2013                          No. 2013-22 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress Let it drain, let it drain.  Field draining seems to be picking up speed these days.  Not only that, but the first fields began to be harvested early in the week.  Limited yield comments so far, but what […]

August 9, 2013                            No. 2013-20 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress Not much has changed in the past week, except for more rainfall across the northern half of the state.  The comment has been thrown out there more than once that people have never been so happy to miss […]

August 3, 2013                            No. 2013-19 Dr. Jarrod Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress While there have been a few reports of fields just going to flood in the last couple of weeks, the state is about 40% headed to date.  DD50 numbers indicate that nearly 80% of fields should be at […]

July 26, 2013                              No. 2013-18 Dr. Jarrod T. Hardke, Dr. Gus Lorenz, and Dr. Yeshi Wamishe Crop Progress Heading is getting into full swing.  By the DD50 numbers we’ve been a little behind where we should be.  I blame this on the cool spell we experienced in mid-May that put the brakes on emerged rice.  […]
