CRIA Takes Active Role in No on Prop 15

The California Rice Industry Association is taking an active role educating voters on the impacts that Proposition 15 would have on California’s farmers, ranchers and businesses. 

For the rice industry, Proposition 15 would eliminate the 1978 ‘Prop 13’ tax limits on improvements on Ag lands including buildings, roads and other upgrades. Every dryer and mills would be subject to increased property taxes. 

The impacts on every Californian would follow, as businesses and farms pass along increased costs on everything from food to rent. In the end, this is not a tax on a big business, this is a tax on everyone. 

To educate the public on these impacts, the California Rice Industry Association, has joined like–minded Ag organizations including California Dairies Inc, California Citrus Mutual, California Fresh Fruit Assoc. and many others in a $ 1 million campaign opposing Proposition 15.

Here is a sample of the early efforts. Future radio spots and digital media will focus on Ag’s urban neighbors.

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.
