The farmer whose crop is destroyed in the field does not have to pay zakat. Ushr becomes obligatory after the crop is harvested; so, if the crop is destroyed after harvesting, it is necessary to pay zakat. As a matter of fact, Allah, the Exalted, stated the following, “Render the dues that are proper on the day that the harvest is gathered.”(al-An’am 8/141).
