Each day, a link to the video program will be sent out via our e-Communications. All presentations will be available on our CalRiceNews Website.

This year’s grower meeting will include detailed information on federal and state politics, the water outlook, trade and more. We are excited that highly-regarded policy analyst Jim Wiesemeyer of Pro Farmer will provide comments, which are especially timely considering the political change in Washington, D.C.

Rice Pesticides: Key Links and Updates

The links below include select pesticide updates in an effort to provide the information in an easily accessible way.

The EPA Reg. No. provides additional identification of the individual pesticide products on the Rice Pesticide Update Table.
