WDR

Farm Evaluation & Nitrogen Management Plan reporting website is open

Farm Evaluation & Nitrogen Management Plan reporting website is open

New for this year is a list of Frequently Asked Questions you can access here and on the website.

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

You will notice some minor formatting improvements in making the process more user friendly, and provide easier access from tablets. Please utilize the onscreen instructions to assist in filling out the information. The Grower Dashboard allows you to begin the reporting by entering the last seven digits of your pesticide use permit number (restricted materials permit or private applicator number in some counties).

You use one login button for all three reporting areas (FE, previous year NMP and current year NMP) with completion in this same sequence. You 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 for the upcoming planting season.

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

Now is the time to update fields for 2018 reporting

We use the field information from the restricted materials (pesticide permits) at the county agricultural commissioner offices for uploading to the Farm Evaluation and the Nitrogen Management Plan – the reporting requirements for the Rice Waste Discharge Requirements. The CRC cannot manipulate, or change the field information if it is incorrect. Please correct the information at the county agricultural commissioner office in preparation for reporting next year.
