The due date for the Farm Evaluation and Nitrogen Management Plan reporting, for the 2018 crop year, was March 1. We are extending the due date to allow full compliance for this regulatory reporting requirement. The Rice Waste Discharge Requirements (WDR) reporting website will remain open to July 31 to allow compliance through the end of planting and the application season. We are also sending non-compliance reminder letters to specific individuals.
Please go to www.calricenews.org and click on WDR and then click on Start Farm Evaluation and Nitrogen Management Plan. Or directly go to the site by using: https://evaluation.calricenews.org/farmevaluation/ Enter the last seven digits of your pesticide permit number and following the online instructions.
You will know whether you have complied by checking whether your dashboard on the WDR site shows all three boxes as green with a white check mark. The Farm Evaluation should show “submitted” while the Nitrogen Management Plan shows “reported.”
