Understanding Production Insurance benefits during planting

​​​​​​​​​When issues arise at planting, Production Insurance can help cover unplanned-for costs. Production Insurance has built-in benefits to help Ontario grain and oilseed producers if they are unable to plant or have to replant their crop(s).

Perfect planting conditions are never guaranteed, and each year brings its own set of challenges. Unpredictable weather, pests or disease can interfere with best-laid plans and can result in a number of unexpected costs for producers.

While some producers are off to a good start this spring, others may experience a compressed planting season. Production Insurance is designed to help in situations like these.

Learn more about the benefits

If a producer is unable to plant because of something like excessive rainfall, the unseeded acreage benefit helps cover the financial burden of fixed costs and land maintenance.

If a producer has to replant crops that experience damage, the reseeding benefit provides options to optimize their yield by helping cover the costs.

To see how these benefits work, read the Unseeded Acreage and Reseeding Benefits feature sheet.

Stay in touch

Customers who are concerned about their crops should contact Agricorp for help through the claim process. The sooner producers discuss potential damage to their crops with Agricorp, the sooner they can review their options and get started on the next steps.
