Farm Evaluation/Nitrogen Management Plan Reporting moves to every five years

Farm Evaluation/Nitrogen Management Plan Reporting moves to every five years

The requirement to complete the Rice Waste Discharge Requirements (WDR) Farm Evaluation and Nitrogen Management Plan moves to once every five years. This means you will report the 2022 crop information in 2023. The calricenews.org website currently reflects the change in reporting requirements. We will provide reminders as the reporting date approaches.

These dates coincide with previous amendments to the East San Joaquin Coalition’s WDR Order. Several of the resulting amendments became effective to all WDR Orders in Region 5 of Central Valley Water Board. The effective start date was in 2018, and formalized with an amendment to the Rice WDR Order in 2019. We were well into the 2018 crop reporting cycle when the amendment became effective.

Thiobencarb Management Calendar

The information in this twelve-month chart is just a snapshot of the management necessary to maintain thiobencarb. At the CRC, we work to provide information on the management practices, stewardship updates and the monitoring results because product maintenance does not end with the last application, cumulation of all water-holds or the collection of the final water sample. Every person using, applying and recommending thiobencarb takes ownership in successful management of the herbicide. Management requires constant diligence and coordination with the growers, registrants, pilots, applicators, pest control advisers, county agricultural commissioners and state regulators to assure continual usage of this important herbicide.
