No Zakah is due on less than five Wasqs (1 Wasq = 60 Sa`s =130,320 kg) of dates or grains.
Agreed upon by Al-Bukhari and Muslim,
and this wording of the Hadith is narrated by (Part No. 9; Page No. 236)

After grains are threshed and fruits are dried, they have to reach the Nisab (the minimum amount on which Zakah is due) that is 5 Wasqs (1 Wasq = 60 Sa`s =130,320 kg) weighed by the Sa` of Madinah.
The owner of the grains or fruits has to own the Nisab at the time when Zakah is due.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
