The Thiobencarb Mandatory Stewardship Training is a regulatory requirement for the CRC to provide. Training will be a separate online course available later this month with continuing education credit pending, so watch for our future updates.

The following is a message from Valent:

Every year, we look forward to seeing you in person at our annual Valent Rice Stewardship meetings. This year, things look a little different and we’re disappointed we won’t be able to meet with you in person. 

However, we will be offering our Annual California Rice content online. The content will include: 

  • Foundation Herbicide programs, with Bolero UltraMax, League MVP and Abolish 8EC.
  • Weed control with Regiment CA, as well as required Applicator Certification.
  • Program approach for a successful rice growing season.
  • Frequently Asked Questions.

The on-demand online course will take approximately 90 minutes, and 1.5 hours of Continuing Education have been approved by DPR. 

Below you will find the access information to view the virtual Valent Rice Meeting for 2021.
