Premium rate by coverage level

​The minimum total cus​​​​tomer premium is $100.


​Calculating your ann​​ual premium

Your annual premium ​is based on:

  • Base premium rate
  • Reported number of acres
  • Discounts and surcharges (D or S)

​The premium is calculated using this formula:​

Annual premium = number of acres x base premium rate x D or S

​​Base premium ra​​​​te

The base premium rate is determined at renewal time each year. It may change due to fact​​​​ors like p​ast performance of the plan, changes to claim prices and the level of the Production Insurance Fund.

​​Reported num​​ber of acres

This refers to the total number of planted acres that you or your processor reported when you finished planting. Once your final planted acres are reported, Agricorp sends the premium invoice to you or your processor, depending on who pays.​

​​Discounts an​d surcharges

If you have been enrolled in a Production Insurance plan for more than one year, a discount or surcharge may be applied to your premium rate. Discounts and surcharges are determined by comparing your individual claim rate to the claim rate for the crop plan as a whole.

​Claim prices

Claim prices are set by Agricorp and based on information from the Ontario Processing Vegetable Growers (OPVG).

​​The claim price is based on the previous year’s non-fulfillment contract price with the OPVG. This is the price you would have received if you were unable to fulfill the contract.
