It Just Takes Two Minutes to Vote

It only takes a few minutes to vote on the CRC Major Amendment.

CDFA just sent a second round of ballots to those who had not yet voted. Grab the envelope off the top of the pile, fill it out and drop it in the mailbox.

If the minimum number of ballots are not returned, another effort will need to be undertaken in order to cover the increased fees and monitoring costs of the Rice WDR, managed by the CRC on behalf of the industry.

If you have not received a ballot, contact Kacie Fritz at CDFA (916) 900-5095 or Kacie.fritz@cdfa.ca.gov

To address the needs of rice mills, dryers and larger suppliers, federal relief will be needed.

Rice Pesticides: Key Links and Updates

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.
