With harvest season underway, Agricorp's top priorities are to make sure farmers have the information they need about their program coverage, when they need it, and to assist them with any claims they may have. Harvest season is nearing completion for canola, mustard, spring grains and spring wheat. Ontario farmers have until October 31 to report these yields to wrap up their Production Insurance participation for the year.
Calling early to report yields
Reporting yields early and keeping Agricorp informed about crop damage can help eligible farmers get the payment process started early. It's best not to wait for the deadline. The sooner yields are reported, the sooner farmers can check it off their to-do list and the sooner Agricorp can process potential payments.
If conditions delay harvest beyond the yield-reporting deadline, customers still need to call Agricorp to report a partial yield and confirm the status of their coverage.
Self-declared yield reporting kits are available online
In response to customer feedback, Agricorp will no longer automatically mail out the multi-page printed version of the self-declared yield kit. Anyone who wishes to refer to these instructions and worksheets to help determine yields can find them at agricorp.com/yieldreport. If farmers would like a paper copy of the self-declared yield kit or written confirmation of their reported yield, they can call Agricorp at 1-888-247-4999 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Production Insurance" in the subject line.
Payments are faster with direct deposit
By signing up for direct deposit, farmers receiving a payment can get cash in the bank five to seven days faster. They can find details and sign up at agricorp.com/directdeposit.
