My name is Ryan Hill, and I am the new UC Cooperative Extension Weed Science and Agronomy Advisor in Tehama County, also serving Shasta and Glenn counties. I received a B.S. in Biology from George Fox University in 2014 and an M.S. in Plant Breeding and Genetics from the Department of Horticulture at Oregon State University in 2020. From 2020 to 2023 I was a Faculty Research Assistant in Dr. Marcelo Moretti's perennial weed science lab at OSU. In this role I conducted weed research in horticultural crops including several projects on herbicide-induced crop injury. Additional projects included electrical weed control of Italian ryegrass, sucker control in hops and hazelnuts, pollinator habitat establishment with pre-emergent herbicides,...

Weed Science School 2023
Most of us learn best by doing, which is why Weed Science School 2023 promises to be better than ever this year.
The course offers hands-on training and will include four rotations where participants can be involved in weed identification, spray nozzle demonstration, an adjuvant demonstration, and an herbicide symptomology lab. In addition, we provide several lectures on weed biology, ecology, organic weed management techniques, herbicides action and resistant management and prevention discussions, as well as.../h2>
SUPPRESS® herbicide EC, a product manufactured by Westbridge Agricultural Products, was registered in California in 2015. Its active ingredients are Caprylic Acid and Capric Acid. It is registered for use in organic production, and it is labeled for use in “agricultural food and non-food crops”. In rice, it can be utilized only when the field is drained (no standing water allowed).
Since 2019, UCCE Rice Advisor Whitney Brim-DeForest has been testing SUPPRESS® herbicide for use in weed control in rice. In 2019, she collaborated with Jim Cook (Colusa County Farm Supply), to spot spray weedy rice in a field containing Type 3 (long awns, straw hulled). The application was made with a handheld backpack sprayer, at...
