Wilbur-Ellis is circulating a letter asking growers concerned they may have been affected by the recent drift incident in the Lodi area to contact them. As previously reported Wilbur-Ellis recommended and sold chemicals to Semitropic Water Storage District to remove vegetation from Bouldin Island. The letter says Semitropic contracted with Alpine Helicopter to conduct the application.

“We were not connected to the circumstances surrounding the aerial application – quantities, weather conditions, sprayers used, etc,” reads the letter. “Nonetheless, we do want to support the collection and monitoring of data regarding impact with the goal of working together toward a successful harvest."

Growers were asked to contact an investigating agronomist via 844-252-4640
