Monitoring is underway for the thiobencarb use season. We start doubling up the monitoring this week in advance of the Memorial Day holiday weekend. The increase in the monitoring schedule will continue through the majority of the season.
The current weather forecast indicates rain possible the Memorial Day holiday weekend. The Sacramento River levels have been lower than previous years at the city drinking water intakes, even though the field sheets record higher flows in the drains.
Please reference the thiobencarb waterhold chart in communication about irrigation decisions. The Department of Pesticide Regulation provides waterholding information in the Rice Pesticides Water Management Requirements Summary.
