AgriStability interim payments increased for bee and poultry producers

​May 6, 2022

Ontario beekeepers and poultry producers who participate in AgriStability can apply for a 2022 interim payment to receive 75% of their estimated final payment. Previously, customers could receive 50% of their estimated final AgriStability payment. This increase is in response to the impacts of significant overwinter hive losses and avian influenza.

Beekeepers and poultry producers who are not enrolled in AgriStability still have time to apply and be eligible for an interim payment.

To apply for the program, submit a New Participant Form by June 30, 2022.

To apply for an interim payment, submit an Interim Payment Application.
