Required by WDR for submission by March 01, 2024

The website for the online submission of the Farm Evaluation and Nitrogen Management Plan (FE/NMP) is active and available through the CalRiceNews link here: calricenews.org/farm-eval-nitrogen-plan

Each Grower is required by the Waste Discharge Order (WDR) to submit each document by March 01, 2024.  

Instructions for the FE/NMP, frequently asked questions, and landowner notification forms are also available on the website.  You must click “SUBMIT FINAL” and have each document in green status with checkmark to count as submitted.

The Farm Evaluation and Nitrogen Management Plan will be reported for the 2023 crop year.  In addition, the Nitrogen Management Plan will require a forecast of nitrogen use and other data for the upcoming 2024 growing season.  Each plan will be submitted using the Grower’s unique identification number from their permit at the County Agricultural Commissioner’s office.  Information reported to the Board will be by township only (no Grower or parcel identification).

Copies of the FE/NMP must be available at the Grower’s farming operations headquarters or primary place of business.

For more information, contact the CRC’s Industry Affairs Manager Craig Riddle at criddle@calrice.org or (916) 812-3468.
