Online Thiobencarb Stewardship Training is available now

The mandatory thiobencarb stewardship training recording is available 24/7 with access to the video throughout the use season. Viewing the video is the only option to receive the certificate of completion. Taking the exam is optional, so the reason two links are available: 1) Select “Certificate Only” if you prefer to view the video with no exam and receive a certificate of completion, or 2) choose the other link to view the video, take the exam, and receive a certificate of completion.

New for 2022:

  1. No live video
  2. The video is prerecorded to either view at once or in five modules
  3. Closed captioning has been added to the pre-recorded video
  4. The videos link to the FarmProgress CEU site
  5. The optional exam is shorter so is the total CEU credit available – 1.0 hour from 1.5 hours
  6. Everyone taking the course last year can use the same log-in information
  7. Certificates of completion are provided per individual viewer

The California Rice Commission’s Waste Discharge Requirement (WDR) requires, beginning in 2022, each grower (or landowner) to conduct annual testing for nitrates in all drinking water supply wells present on parcels where rice is produced. The results are reported from the analytical laboratory to the State’s GeoTracker database.
