Arkansas Rice: Some Southern Fields Being Flooded

    ©Debra L Ferguson Stock Photography

    South Arkansas: Three fields Chicot, Desha and Arkansas Counties have received N-STaR fertilizer applications and are being flooded. The Jefferson County field is cracking and all other fields are from 4 leaves to tillering stage. A low uneven hybrid stand (1 leaf – tillering) in Chicot County made it difficult for management decisions. Pre-emergence herbicides residuals in some fields lasted 4-6 weeks and weeds are now breaking. Post-emergence herbicide recommendations are going out.

    North Arkansas: Growth stages in the eight verification fields range from early spiking to 4 leaf. Although seedling disease occurred in Cross and Mississippi Counties, stand counts remain well within numbers needed for maximum yield potential and seedling rice across the area has a much healthier appearance this week. Pre-emergence herbicides are breaking in some of the fields making post-emergence treatments necessary.
