LSU AgCenter N-St*R Test Plot Vermilion Parish published on No Comments on LSU AgCenter N-St*R Test Plot Vermilion Parish

Vermilion Rice Grower, Dwight Hardee of Gueydan is taking part in a field demonstration of the N-Sta*R test. His 15-acre field is divided into three nitrogen treatments based on
University of Arkansas nitrogen soil test recommendations.

Treatment 1: 95% relative yield–65 units of Nitrogen

Treatment 2: 100% relative yield–95 units of Nitrogen

Treatment 3: Standard Farmer Practice–95 units of Nitrogen plus an
additional nitrogen application at green ring

Field history:

–2/9/12: burn down with 1.5 pt 2,4-D, and 1 qt. roundup

Urea was treated with N-fix.
All 3 plots received 150 lbs DAP 18-46-0 and 150 lbs of Potassium
Sulfate 0-0-50.
Urea was used to make up the remaining nitrogen required.

I will keep you updated on the progress of the plots. We hope to visit
the plots at the Vermilion Rice Field Day scheduled for Thursday, July
5th, 2012. We will keep track of the yields when the plots are
harvested. The plots are just to the west of the Hardee drier on
Burnell Road in Gueydan.
