GUELPH — Risk Management Programs are up for renewal, and farmers are required to sign up for the first time.
If you’re notified by email or mail, you will now need to take a few minutes to reply by filling out the forms. Renewals aren’t automatic this year, since the province introduced a new level of coverage, up to 95 per cent, for Ontario farmers insuring their field crops.
Renewals packages were sent out throughout May, and are due by June 30 for grains and oilseeds, and June 15 for livestock. Find more info on the programming at Agricorp.com.
