A time for important choices

​​​​​Agricorp knows producers have many important decisions to make for their businesses this time of year, including risk management plans. Agricorp is here to help make some of these choices a little easier.

Producers may have the same risk management coverage they've had for years, so with application and renewal dates around the corner for many programs, now is a good time for them to make sure their coverage matches what their farms look like today.

Producers should double check the details in their renewal packages and let Agricorp know if they have any changes. Accurate and up-to-date information ensures they pay the right amount for coverage, receive the right payment in the event of a claim, and get prompt, efficient service when they need it.

  • Producers should tell Agricorp now if they plan to increase the acres they plant by more than 10 per cent to ensure they have sufficient coverage.
  • Producers should note the planting dates they need to meet for each of their crops.

  • Producers should confirm their insured livestock production reflects their anticipated sales.
