The UCCE Rice Team will soon carry out a survey of weedy rice across our growing region.
Fields with a recent history of weed rice infestations will be surveyed. Here’s a link to more information on this effort.
A comprehensive look at Weedy Rice, from regulations to genetics, will be held from 10:00 a.m. to noon on August 1, at the Colusa Casino Chairman’s Room.
The UC Cooperative Extension continues to do an excellent job providing growers with current information regarding the battle against weedy rice in California.
