After some technical difficulties with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s weblink to the main program document called the Public Solicitation Notice (PSN), the issues have now been resolved. The correct link is as follows: https://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/FileHandler.ashx?DocumentID=164867&inline

The PSN provides the most detailed information about the program, including how to apply and how the applications will be prioritized for funding by the Department. The PSN and other information, including the application form, can also be accessed at the Department’s Private Lands Incentive Programs Webpage.

And as a final reminder, interested parties have an opportunity to attend a CRC Workshop, scheduled for next Monday, January 28 at the Colusa Casino starting at 10:00 am, to learn more about this new program. More details about the workshop, including how to RVSP, can be found in CRC’s Winter Rice Habitat Program Workshop Notice.

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. However, we have no ability to correlate the past results with the newer and much lower analytical methods.

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. Please remember the pesticide label is the ultimate level of enforcement and the county permit conditions can supersede the label with more restrictive requirements. 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.
