LITTLE ROCK — With record yields for Arkansas cotton and soybeans, 2017 offered silver linings for the state as flooding cut the state’s rice acreage and drought battered hay and winter wheat. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s 2017 Arkansas Crop Production Annual Summary, Arkansas cotton growers averaged a yield of 1,205 pounds per acre, the highest on record and an increase of 130 pounds per acre over 2016. Acreage was also up by 17 percent over the previous year to 438,000 acres.
