State Grant Just the First Step

We appreciate the Governor’s California Small Agricultural Business Drought Relief Grant Program. This brand new program is a good first step to meet the needs of very small businesses impacted by the drought. This success was the result of great work with NCWA, CA Agricultural Aircraft Association, California Warehouse Association and others in agriculture. To address the needs of rice mills, dryers and larger suppliers, federal relief will be needed.

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. 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 the water hold table for Thiobencarb. County permit conditions have been changed to active ingredient rather than trade or product name. The products with combination formulations could have permit conditions apply to one, and not both, of the active ingredients. In this situation, the most stringent requirements must be followed. The EPA Reg. No. provides additional identification of the individual pesticide products on the Rice Pesticide Update Table.
