Armstrong and Getty convey vital benefits of Sites Reservoir

Armstrong and Getty convey vital benefits of Sites Reservoir

For more than six years, listeners of the popular Armstrong and Getty Radio Show have heard hundreds of live testimonials from Jack Armstrong and Joe Getty covering the many benefits of California rice.

This long-running campaign has not only helped raise understanding of the value of rice, it has also provided valuable information on other key issues in our valley.

We typically devote one week per month to testimonials about the need for additional water storage through Sites Reservoir. We continue to work with the Sites Joint Powers Authority to convey the most updated and important information to further chances that the reservoir will be built. Sites is a major part of our Sacramento Valley Water Communications effort in conjunction with the Northern California Water Association.

The Sites testimonials are running this week on the show, which airs in the Sacramento area on KSTE AM 650.

Rice receives project priority

With hard work and a good understanding of the regulatory process, the Commission was successful in gaining IR-4 priority for necessary research on an important armyworm insecticide. Typically thought of as a program only for ‘specialty crops’ the Commission successfully made the case that the minor use of this insecticide on California rice qualified the proposal for consideration.
