Clark County Agriculture
Row Crop Farmers and Floods
Clark County has had its share of flooding in recent days. Although other areas of the state have been hit much harder, all row crop farmers in South Arkansas have had to do some scrambling. Jerry Clemons works with the farmers in Clark County to learn more about dealing with these issues. He and the farmers in his county are thankful for warmer drier weather.
For more information contact Jerry Clemons, County Extension Agent - Staff Chair in Clark County.

Clark County Horticulture
South Arkansas sees a fair share of plant diseases, especially because of our high humidity. This year I expect we'll see even more given the amount of rain we've already received.
Maybe you have turf grass dying in spots or maybe even entire areas that are dead. Do you have spots or discoloration on your veggies or shrubs?
The Extension Service has a plant disease lab that we can send your samples to for
diagnosis and recommendations. It's free and and quick! We'll help you get your plants
healthy again. For more information on 4-H in Clark County contact Amy Simpson, County Extension Agent- 4H/Agri
