  1. I know farmers believe in these chemicals and you know we all have opinions do me a favor when spraying no matter how much you trust them keep your wife and child in when spraying that's the most dangerous time i sure dont want one of them to suffer like my other family members have with the same cancer and as i said my opinion your choice and as the company paying for the test government or not you pay enough you get the results you want if you check study's they didn't pay for they paint a different picture as i said my opinion with that being said i do love all your videos as of 6-26-19 im a new subscriber and I'm just looking at your past videos and I think your channel is awesome

  2. Hi! So you're probably using a herbicide resistent variety if you can controll weeds by spraying herbicides over the entire fields, right? Can I ask which rice variety and which pesticide you use? And do you happen to know where the variety was bred (which company)? Is it a variety made for the Californian climate especially?

  4. All of our cereal crops here in western Canada are desicated with roundup preharvest . wheat, oats ,barley, lentils, peas, chickpeas, and beans. They all have residues of glyphosate. The canola is gmo and is sprayed with roundup for weed control. I'm happy to say that rice still has low residues. Watch out if gmo rice is introduced.

  5. So all pesticides are safe, they are used according to label directions, government approvals are totally trustworthy ,and there are no residues in food or water. You have a lot of faith in the chemical industry.

  6. Very well explained. I always assumed it was an enormous amount of herbicides sprayed on the fields. I didn't realize also the years of testing and tough regulations.

  7. < 3oz may not seem like a lot, but when its unclear as to what level has a harmful effect on an organism it rather hard to say if that concentration is small or large.
    I've heard that residues are still found in foods, they're just at levels below what is allowed. The concern is that the corporations have prevented proper studies on the chemicals; must notably Glyphosate.
    Do PCA's work for the companies selling the chemicals?

  8. My question is being asked to help the farmer and farmers only. Waiting 10 years for a herbicides to be approved sounds problematic. Our President is all about cutting regulations. If you could ask President Trump to cut regulations to benefit farmers. What would you ask him to do?

  9. Thanks for the education! We need more people in industry sharing what they do with the public in this informal manner, very concise and entertaining to watch. People wouldn't think what they want or fall victim to made up stories about what's going on if they know what's actually going on from the people who are involved.

  10. Am enjoying your videos. Your'e a great teacher. Even 3rd graders can see how much chemical is placed. Last person mentioned politics…wished our politicians were as transparent and honest.

  11. Another fantastic video…

    On another note do you know any of the wildlife biologists in the federal refuge system up there….Jacob Byer, used to be the bio at the Kern Refuge and I know he moved back north.

    Thanks again for you efforts to educate us lay on rice farming.

    Got my hat too….now all I need is a full, red beard…nah!
