Opening today: Farm Evaluation & Nitrogen Management Plan reporting website

Please go to calricenews.org and report the Farm Evaluation (FE) and Nitrogen Management Plan (NMP) by March 1. The reporting for the Rice Waste Discharge Requirements (Rice WDR) remains the same as the last two years.

A Grower Dashboard will appear after you enter the last seven digits of the pesticide use permit number (restricted materials permit or private applicator number in some counties).

This creates one login button for all three reporting areas (FE, previous year NMP and current year NMP) with completion in this same sequence.

You still need to fill in everything for the field information, but can choose “select all” for the management practices to speed up the reporting process.

The reports can be accessed after the site is closed for maintenance. This allows you to retrieve and print reports throughout the year.

Please remember to click “save” at the bottom of each screen after you have completed your information. You cannot advance to the next screen until your information is saved.

You still need to complete the FE before moving onto the previous year NMP. Both require reporting of your farming practices from the previous year. The current year NMP is your planning tool.
