FARM REPORTING CHECKLIST

 

  1. Verify My INFO – Contact information can be updated here. 

  2. Verify ACCOUNT – Reporter name, account completion & account balance.

  3. Verify ACCOUNT CONTACT – Billing contact can be changed here.

  4. Verify PARCELS – Is the parcel active or not? Please leave detailed notes when changing a parcel’s status.

  5. Verify CROPPING, irrigated acres & planting year for permanent crops. NEW: “Pasture – No Nitrogen” If this is selected, it means that you do not apply external nitrogen to your pasture. The INMP SR – Irrigation & Nitrogen Management Plan Summary Report is not required and will not be available to complete for that field/parcel in the DMT. (You will still need to complete Outreach/Training, MPIR – Management Practice Implementation Report and SECP-Sediment & Erosion Control Plan.Update Your Crop: “Pasture-No Nitrogen”= No nitrogen applied OR “Pasture” = Nitrogen is applied.

  6. Complete INMP SR – Irrigation and Nitrogen Management Plan Summary Report – Management units, reporting & certification [Need pounds of nitrogen applied per/acre including your credits (from soil and water) and crop yield per/acre]     NEW:                 “No N” (nitrogen) button = No N was applied management unit, the DMT will enter “0” to all the nitrogen input fields.  “N in Liquid/Dry Fertilizer” and “N in Irrigation Water” are required fields. For all other N input fields = Any field left as “Value,” the DMT will assume these fields are “0” N inputs. “Click Here to Input Answers from Last Year’s INMP” for Irrigation Method, Irrigation Efficiency and Nitrogen Efficiency questions.  If the crop type is different for the same management unit from last year to this year, validation is triggered. “Prior Year Results” INMP inputs are listed at the bottom of the page as a reference.

  7. OUTREACH/TRAINING – Enter the education event “attended.” Your annual education requirement can be met in many different ways this year.  From in-person workshops to virtual webinars. Check out our website and these other ideas if you have not already completed a qualifying activity.

  8. MPIR – Groundwater Management Practice Implementation Report – Irrigation Wells, Irrigation Uniformity and Crop Fertility. Most of the questions will be familiar as they are the same information from the Farm Evaluation questions (wells and crop fertility plan), however there is a new section related to irrigation uniformity. Structured similar to the Sediment & Erosion Control section of the Farm Evaluation, this report utilizes Management Units to group fields for reporting. Note: If you do not use any of the listed practices in your operation, then the answer would be “never” or if you use furrow irrigation, and the questions are pertaining to drip, the answer would be “never”.

  9. Verify SECP – Sediment & Erosion Control Plan – Acknowledge you have read and understand the requirements. --SECP self-certification online training will be available February 1-28, 2022!If you need this training, do not miss it. To find out if you need to have a SECP for your parcel, visit the PARCELS page in the DMT. For the online SECP training visit: irrigated-lands-regulatory-program.thinkific.com/courses/online-secp-self-certification-training

  10. MAPS AND REPORTS – This section allows you to print farm maps and review your grower feedback reports.  If you are required to complete an INMP (everyone with the exception of Pasture- No Nitrogen), you must acknowledge that you are aware of your outlier status on the INMP certification page.

  11. Complete the INMP WORKSHEET – Pre-planning for 2022 crop year, kept on-farm. (Required for all parcels-exception is Pasture-No Nitrogen) The online version of the worksheet is available to download in the DMT or visit our webpage at: dixonrcd.org/forms-checklists

  12. For Pesticide Users only: There will be additional reporting required at a later date because we are currently under a pesticide related management plan due to exceedances at our representative monitoring site. A SW MPIR – Surface Water Management Practice Implementation Report will be required for some pesticide users. Information will be sent to those required to complete this reporting in late Spring/Early Summer.
