LockDown Liquid Herbicide for Organic Rice – Time to Order!

Organic rice producers were able to attend two meetings in March about LockDown Liquid use in organic rice, one in Nada and one in Beaumont.  A big thanks to Greg Devillier, Douget’s Rice Mill and Vivian Spanihel, American Rice Growers for arranging the meetings. 

LockDown Liquid is sold by Agricultural Research Initiatives and Kelly Cartwright.  Kelly was able to make the meetings and discuss both how LockDown works and how it should be applied in 2023 to control Northern Jointvetch and possibly other weeds as well.  It’s great to have affordable organic weed control when things get bad! (read a previous post about weed control)

If you are interested in purchasing LockDown Liquid for use on your organic rice acres then we do need to get the orders in soon.  We are shooting for a June application, but this will require an order to be made soon (April 15-May 1).  Cost is $15 per acre and orders require the number of acres to be sprayed (3 liters per acre). 

You can call Greg, Vivian, or myself to place an order and since this is a live organism once ordered it is yours! No returns….just dead weeds!
