California Rice featured at Today’s Farm to Fork Festival

California Rice featured at Today’s Farm to Fork Festival


Sacramento’s Capitol Mall bustled with activity today, during the seventh annual Farm to Fork Festival, and rice was featured. 

Attendees watched a California Rice cooking demonstration from Chefs Juan and Toby Barajas of Savory Café in Woodland, emceed by ABC 10 Sacramento News Anchor Madison Meyer and CRC President & CEO Tim Johnson. Recipe cards with this dish and rice messaging were provided.

While the chefs made their dish, chicken with California rice cooked in a cast iron pan, key messages were covered. Topics included the impact of rice to our economy and environment, as well as the different types of rice grown in our state and cooking suggestions. 

Today’s festival is part of a larger effort to educate our region about the important role of California Rice. Another recent CRC-led activity was a rice harvest tour with food bloggers and chefs in Sutter County last week.

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.
