Crop Making Considerable Progress

Rice fields in South Louisiana and Texas are beginning to go to permanent flood. The weather has started to cooperate, bringing less windy conditions, and we are beginning to catch up on herbicide applications. Overall, the rice crop is beginning to look better due to warmer weather and fields getting flooded. Early estimates are that there are more than 80,000 acres of PVL03 in my territory. The variety has shown a lot of vigor and the weed control of the Provisia® herbicide is excellent. Recently, the Provisia herbicide label was changed to allow for three sequential applications, though the total rate of herbicide has not changed.

The strong winds have made herbicide applications difficult and are causing physical damage to seedlings that are drill planted. In water-seeded fields, the winds have been pushing around the seedlings not yet attached to the soil. Temperatures have improved a little, but nighttime temperatures are a still little lower than what they should be at this time of year in both Texas and South Louisiana.
