With Higher Input Costs, Proven Varieties Are Critical

All expectations are that 2022 will be particularly challenging for Louisiana rice farmers and their counterparts across the South, especially when it comes to managing through the explosion in fertilizer costs and supply concerns this season.
Control Costs, Manage for Improved Profitability With Proven Horizon Ag Varieties

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – To overcome some of the uncertainty hanging over planting decisions this season, farmers must sharpen their pencils to set themselves up for success. Rice farmers, in particular, can benefit by paying attention to key management areas where higher input costs threaten to cut into profit potential – like fertilizer, seed and fungicides.

Grass Issues Reported in North Delta

Harvest has started in South Louisiana. A few fields were harvested last week, and I fully expect that many growers will begin by this weekend. In the western rice belt of Texas, harvest has also begun, with a few fields harvested this week, and next week, they should begin to ramp up. As for the Beaumont area, rice is heading out, and harvesting should begin there in the next three to four weeks, although a few growers will be earlier than that.

Dry, Hot Weather Creating Challenges in Many Areas

Harvest will begin soon in South Louisiana and the western rice belt of Texas. I expect the first fields to be harvested within the next week to 10 days in both regions. A few fields in the Beaumont area will not be much behind that schedule, but the majority of the crop in that area is now beginning to head. I have gotten a few questions on when to drain your field for harvest, but the perfect time is not the same for every field. Timing is dependent on the type of soil that you have and how well the field drains. On lighter soils, I like the grain head to be two-thirds or so straw-colored when the water is turned off. On heavier soils, one-half of the head should be straw-colored.
