Reclamation (Reclamation). Accurate and timely crop information is needed to document the District’s water need, its efficient use, and the impacts of water shortages due to hydrologic and regulatory restrictions.
The Crop Report may conveniently be completed online using your customer web account and the web page labeled Crop Report on the selection menu. Filing your crop data online will provide more accurate data and efficient summarization for submission to Reclamation. A page of help notes is attached to this notice to assist you with using the online crop report form.
Please account for all USDA Farm Service Agency (CFSA) acres by indicating the appropriate crop (or fallow if applicable) for each field in your account. Indicate any fields that are double cropped and the type of crops. For each crop listed, indicate the irrigation type(s) used, and any other conditions that may apply to that field.
For permanent crops that are nonbearing, indicate the type of tree crop or vine crop. Also indicate any crops that are not harvested, and the type of crop not harvested. Be as specific as possible regarding crop varieties or market. For example:
|Cotton:||Pima or acala|
|Tomatoes:||Processing or fresh market|
|Onions:||Processing or fresh market|
|Melons:||Cantaloupe, honeydew, or watermelon|
|Grapes:||Wine, table, or raisin|
