Lambda-cyhalothrin to be extensively monitored in Rice this year

We start monitoring Lambda-cyhalothrin (Warrior, Lambda-cy, Silencer, etc.) in the water column plus sediment sampling this year. The sampling takes place at the drain sites we use for thiobencarb monitoring. This will be our first experience with compliance to the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) requirements. The TMDL is a forever monitoring program and we anticipate positive results leading to future modifications. We have never had an issue with our long history monitoring the pyrethroid insecticides.

Here are Key Links and Updates for Rice Pesticides

The following links include select pesticide updates as an effort to provide you with easy access to the information.

You will find permit conditions and supplemental labels for thiobencarb. Permit conditions for some pesticides have been changed to active ingredient rather than trade or product name due to new product registrations. Products such as Butte Herbicide, RebelEx CA and RiceEdge 60DF are combination formulations and permit conditions could apply to one of the active ingredients. The EPA Reg. No. provides additional identification of the individual pesticide products on the Rice Pesticide Update Table.
