Extensions on the Application Window for Bermuda Crops
As a result of the nearly two weeks of rainfall at the end of September and early October, we have received numerous requests this week for extensions on the application window for Bermuda crops. The application window for most Bermuda fields ended on September 30.
After consultation with an agronomist, the Division is allowing an extension of the Bermuda application window until October 20. Please note the following conditions related to the extension:
- This extension applies only to Bermuda crops with an application window that expired on September 30, 2015.
- The owner of the animal operation must have the Waste Utilization Plan (WUP) amended by a Technical Specialist to reflect the extended application window. The owner must keep this temporary amendment with the WUP for review during the farm’s annual inspection.
- The application of waste during this extended period shall not exceed the specified PAN rates for each field.
- The extended application window must end no later than October 20, 2015 and is valid for this year only.
