Here are Key Links and Updates for Rice Pesticides

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.

No. provides additional identification of the individual pesticide products on the Rice Pesticide Update Table.
