During the summer months, we know that farmers across Ontario are watching the weather, especially for rain. Just the right amount of rain at the right time is never guaranteed, and too little or too much rain can be harmful to farm businesses.
Not only does weather affect crop yields, but it could also affect market supply and demand. That's why over 20,000 farm businesses are enrolled in
Risk Management Program and
Production Insurance, with over 5 million acres covered under Production Insurance plans.
Agricorp is here to help. Farmers who have concerns about their program coverage should contact Agricorp to make sure they have the information they need to make decisions that are best for their farm – because every situation is unique.
