upon the collateral by virtue of an execution based upon the judgment relates back to the earliest of:
(a) the date of perfection of the security interest or agricultural lien in the collateral; (b) the date of filing a financing statement covering the collateral; or (c) any date specified in a statute under which the agricultural lien was created.
