The CRC is providing this information to our members and industry allies to assist with your license/certificate renewals. The Department of Pesticide Regulation has not modified the renewal deadlines for license/certificate holders required to renew by December 31, 2020. It is recommended you submit your renewal packet by November 1 to receive your license/certificate by January 1. The licenses/certificates holders renewing every two years such as the pest control adviser split the alphabet using the last names starting with A to L in 2020. The prohibition of in person events has increased the availability of online continuing education courses approved for all license/certificate types related to the rice industry. Several more courses will become available after the first of the year. In the interim, the CRC has compiled the following information to help you renew and maintain your license/certificate. For more information, contact CRC Industry Affairs Manager Roberta Firoved at rfiroved@calrice.org or (916) 206-5039.

Lambda-cyhalothrin to be extensively monitored in Rice this year

We start monitoring Lambda-cyhalothrin (Warrior, Lambda-cy, Silencer, etc.) in the water column plus sediment sampling this year. The sampling takes place at the drain sites we use for thiobencarb monitoring. This will be our first experience with compliance to the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) requirements. The TMDL is a forever monitoring program and we anticipate positive results leading to future modifications. We have never had an issue with our long history monitoring the pyrethroid insecticides. However, we have no ability to correlate the past results with the newer and much lower analytical methods.

Here are Key Links and Updates for Rice Pesticides

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.
