Arkansas corn/sorghum verification report available
The Arkansas 2012 Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Verification Program report is now available under the publications tab of the Arkansas Row Crops Blog, announced Kevin Lawson, program associate—Corn & Grain Sorghum Verification.
The 2012 growing season was the thirteenth year for the Corn and Grain Sorghum Research Verification Program (CGSRVP). The CGSRVP is an interdisciplinary effort between growers, County Extension agents, Extension specialists, and researchers. The CGSRVP is an on-farm demonstration of all the research-based recommendations required to grow corn and grain sorghum profitably in Arkansas. The specific objectives of the program are:
1. To verify research-based recommendations for profitable corn and grain sorghum production in all corn and grain sorghum producing areas of Arkansas.
2. To develop a database for economic analysis of all aspects of corn and grain sorghum production.
3. To demonstrate that consistently high yields of corn and grain sorghum can be produced economically with the use of available technology and inputs.
4. To identify specific problems and opportunities in Arkansas corn and grain sorghum production for further investigation.
5. To promote timely implementation of cultural and management practices among corn and grain sorghum growers.
6. To provide training and assistance to county agents with limited expertise in corn and grain sorghum production.
