The University of California Cooperative Extension will hold weedy rice meetings at two valley locations: this Thursday, August 19, in Glenn County, and Friday, August 20, in Colusa County.
Researchers will be at the locations from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., and will cover how to identify weedy rice and how to differentiate it from other grassy weeds. Those interested are encouraged to visit; a process that usually takes about 20 minutes.
Weedy rice samples will be available for inspection and comparison with other weeds. Attendees can observe infested fields from the field’s edge, so no boots are required.
Here is information for each day:
