Significant Thiobencarb Concentration Detections in Colusa Basin Drain.
The Rice Pesticide Program (RPP) will enter the 8th week of thiobencarb (i.e., Bolero, Abolish, Willowood Thio) monitoring on June 27. The results of monitoring across the sampling sites have generally yielded positive results with only two samples exceeding the performance goal of 1.5 μg/L to date.
We continue to communicate with the County Agricultural Commissioner's offices, the Central Valley Water Board and the Department of Pesticide Regulation (and program stakeholders) to ensure they receive regular updates to the monitoring results and understand the support of the industry for use of their regulatory authority, including removing the use of thiobencarb from a grower/applicator permit.
As an industry we have the responsibility for the stewardship of this product. The Rice Commission will continue to fully implement the management practices approved by the Central Valley Water Board to promote compliance with the program requirements, including investigation of the source of exceedances.
