University of California Cooperative Extension will hold a half-day educational webinar, Dec. 9, covering Sacramento Valley pest management. Among the topics are an update on rice weeds by Whitney Brim-Deforest and an update on rice pest management by Luis Espino.

The meeting will run from 8 a.m.m-noon Pacific Standard Time.

The cost is $25, and Califoria Department of Pesticide Regulation and Certified Crop Advisor credits are pending. This is a good way to earn continuing education credits before the end of the year if you’re lacking.
