Michelle Leinfelder-Miles is the UC Cooperative Extension Delta Crops Resource Management Advisor serving San Joaquin, Sacramento, Yolo, Solano, and Contra Costa counties.
From 2019-2021, we conducted trials to evaluate the efficacy of a new herbicide product called Loyant (florpyrauxifen-benzyl; group 4 herbicide; Corteva Agriscience) in Delta drill-seeded rice.

In 2020, we conducted a small screening with a set of 10 watergrass samples (collected in 2018) from across the valley, trying to see if we could get an idea of what herbicides controlled the different species/biotypes. The results from those 10 samples indicated that Clincher, propanil, and Regiment, as well as Cerano, had the best.../span>
2020 Survey Update
Weedy rice was found in California on a large scale in 2016, over 8 counties, after having been only found in a few fields in one county prior to 2008. In 2020, University of California Cooperative Extension conducted a comprehensive survey. The objectives of this survey were to determine: 1) presence-absence of weedy rice, 2) to determine infestation level, and 3) to determine if there was any pattern to the distribution of weedy rice biotypes.
A survey was conducted from June thru September 2020 across eight counties (Glenn, Butte, Colusa, Sutter, Yolo, Yuba, Placer and Sacramento). Each field was surveyed on an individual basin level. Each basin was surveyed by.../h3>
