For the 2002-crop year only, planting any WR/FAVs on excess DCP base acreage will not result in contract termination. However, DCP payments will be reduced by an acre for each acre of excess DCP base acreage planted to WR/FAVs.
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.
