Thiobencarb Success Story

Thiobencarb Success Story

Thank you to all rice growers for successfully managing thiobencarb this year. A special thank you to the rice growers, pilots, applicators and PCAs who steward thiobencarb through usage, applications and recommendations.

This season’s thiobencarb monitoring results were virtually non-detects. One split sample at the lower end of the Colusa Basin Drain had a result slightly above the performance goal. This occurs because two labs use different reporting limits as a quality control measure built into the program. The next sampling event recovered to a non-detect at that site.

The County Agricultural Commissioners, Department of Pesticide Regulation and the Central Valley Water Board add to the stewardship and management of thiobencarb. Great job all!
