Sharing Butte Creek now available for viewing

After nearly two years in production, we are excited to announce that today marks the debut of Sharing Butte Creek, a short film on this major environmental success story. Emmy Award winning producer, photographer and editor Kit Tyler interviewed rice growers, water officials, conservationists and others as part of this project.

“Sharing Butte Creek” is the latest in a steady flow of content for our Sacramento Valley Water Campaign, jointly funded by the California Rice Commission and Northern California Water Association, and carried out by the CRC. We plan widespread promotion of this video through social media and earned media, including a custom designed thumb drive included in every Rice Box for our Legislative Day next month. 

Here’s a link to more information and to watch the video. 

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

State Grant Just the First Step

We appreciate the Governor’s California Small Agricultural Business Drought Relief Grant Program. This brand new program is a good first step to meet the needs of very small businesses impacted by the drought. This success was the result of great work with NCWA, CA Agricultural Aircraft Association, California Warehouse Association and others in agriculture. To address the needs of rice mills, dryers and larger suppliers, federal relief will be needed.

Rice Pesticides: Key Links and Updates

The links below include select pesticide updates in an effort to provide the information in an easily accessible way. 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 the water hold table for Thiobencarb. County permit conditions have been changed to active ingredient rather than trade or product name. The products with combination formulations could have permit conditions apply to one, and not both, of the active ingredients. In this situation, the most stringent requirements must be followed. The EPA Reg. No. provides additional identification of the individual pesticide products on the Rice Pesticide Update Table.
