California Rice Podcast launches

California Rice Podcast launches

Our latest entry into telling the story of California Rice through social media is Ingrained, a monthly podcast.   Here’s a link to more information and the pilot episode, featuring an interview with radio hosts Armstrong & Getty. 

Ingrained is part of our continued commitment to tell the story of the value of our industry to target audiences: Legislators, regulators, decision makers and opinion leaders.  Ingrained will be hosted by CRC Communications Manager Jim Morris, and will feature in-depth interviews. 

As with our other social media programs, we are working with advisors and designers to ensure this project is widely-distributed and will have the best chance of success. 

Podcasts continue to grow in popularity. There are more than 700,000 active podcasts, an increase of 27 percent from 2018. The available episodes rose nearly 60 percent last year. 

Our first full episode is expected next week, and will chronicle the start of the rice harvest.

For more information or questions, please contact CRC Communications Manager Jim Morris at jim.morris@calrice.org or 916-205-5395.

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.
