This Thursday and Friday, January 21 and 22, we will provide links to this year’s California Rice Commission Virtual Grower Meeting.

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.

If you have any questions, please contact CRC Communications Manager Jim Morris at (916) 205-5395 or jim.morris@calrice.org.

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.
