Corn Production in Arkansas

Corn Research Verification in Green County, Arkansas

  • Corn acreage has been increasing for the last 15 years in large part due to  profit potential compared to other crops. 
  • Most of Arkansas' increase in corn acreage has come from declining cotton acres. 
  • Approximately 90% of Arkansas corn is irrigated. 
  • Much of Arkansas produced corn is exported via the Mississippi River, but an ever increasing amount is consumed by poultry feed mills located in Arkansas.

Yields have been increasing over time due to irrigation and proper management. Corn is typically planted in March and April and harvested in August and September.
