Planting WR/FAVs on acres that are not considered DCP base acres is not a DCP contract violation and will not result in payment reductions. This rule applies regardless of whether or not the farm or producer has a WR/FAV history.
The harvest in central Minnesota for 2011 is finished. This year's harvest was described in interviews as fair to poor due to higher water levels in particular during the spring, when the wild rice germinates. The harvested rice converted better than last year, and yields of 48% were reported. Please email us for more information.
