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.

Remembering Bill Huffman, 1945-2021

Remembering Bill Huffman, 1945-2021

With great sadness, we share the news of Bill Huffman’s passing on August 3, 2021 after years of struggling with ALS. 

Bill was a fixture in the industry during his 33 years of service to Farmers’ Rice Cooperative. He was an encyclopedia of industry knowledge and made it his life’s work to advance California rice. Bill made an effort to befriend everyone he ran into whether a politician or a doorman. After a few minutes of banter he figured out that he likely knew someone they knew. Bill loved politics and always a gentleman. Ever quick with a joke or a prank, he will be missed.
