However, not every control failure can be attributed to herbicide resistance.</p> <p>Other factors can cause control failures. Among the most common are weather, incorrect rate, poor coverage or application timing, skips, and spray equipment malfunction.</p> <p>When weed control fails, it is important to determine the cause. When the cause is herbicide resistance, herbicide programs should be adjusted.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://westernfarmpress.com/rice/collecting-rice-weed-seeds-herbicide-resistance-testing" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://westernfarmpress.com/rice/collecting-rice-weed-seeds-herbicide-resistance-testing#comments Rice Tue, 04 Aug 2015 16:26:00 +0000 160591 at http://westernfarmpress.com <p>California rice.</p> California rice plantings down 32 percent - 375,000 acres http://westernfarmpress.com/rice/california-rice-plantings-down-32-percent-375000-acres <div class="field-deck"> Estimate based on seed sales </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Water shortages cut rice, wreak havoc on wildlife health and habitat</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://westernfarmpress.com/rice/california-rice-plantings-down-32-percent-375000-acres" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://westernfarmpress.com/rice/california-rice-plantings-down-32-percent-375000-acres#comments Rice Rice Sat, 13 Jun 2015 21:38:00 +0000 159351 at http://westernfarmpress.com <p>Rice fields like this one just north of Sacramento, Calif. support a host of jobs an economic activities, including Farm AIr Flying Service just across the canal from this rice field.</p> National Rice Month scholarships expanded http://westernfarmpress.com/rice/national-rice-month-scholarships-expanded <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Dow AgroSciences announced an expansion of the USA Rice Federation National Rice Month Scholarship Program from students in U.S.- rice producing counties to students in all U.S. rice-producing states.</p> <p>High school graduates in the 2015-16 school year can apply for scholarships totaling $8,500.</p> <p>To apply, students must create a promotional program that highlights U.S.-grown rice for National Rice Month in September.
