Corn, grain sorghum, Arkansas


The 2021 edition of the Arkansas Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Studies Series includes research results on topics pertaining to corn and grain sorghum production, including weed, disease, and insect management; economics; sustainability; irrigation; post-harvest drying; soil fertility; mycotoxins; cover crop management; feral hog control; and research verification program results. Our objective is to capture and broadly distribute the results of research projects funded by the Arkansas Corn and Grain Sorghum Board. The intended audience includes producers and their advisors, current investigators, and future researchers. The Series serves as a citable archive of research results. Reports in this publication are 2–3 year summaries. The reports inform and guide our long-term recommendations but should not be taken solely as our recommended practices. Some reports may appear in other University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture’s Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station publications. This duplication results from the overlap between disciplines and our effort to broadly inform Arkansas corn and grain sorghum producers of the research conducted with funds from the Corn and Grain Sorghum Check-off Program. This publication may also incorporate research partially funded by industry, federal, and state agencies. The use of products and trade names in any of the research reports does not constitute a guarantee or warranty of the products named and does not signify that these products are endorsed or approved to the exclusion of comparable products. All authors are either current or former faculty, staff, or students of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture or scientists with the United States Department of Agriculture, Agriculture Research Service. We extend thanks to the staff at the state and county extension offices, and the research centers and stations; producers and cooperators; and industry personnel who assisted with the planning and execution of the programs. A special thanks to Dr. Victor Ford for his time, effort, and support of the Series.
