​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 Ontario Agricultural Products Insurance Fund.

​​Reported number of acres​​​​

This refers to the total number of planted acres you reported when you finished planting. Once your final planted acres are reported, Agricor​​p sends you the premium invoice.

​​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).

​​​Dollar values are based on the current year's negotiated price by grade from the OPVG. Contract p​​rices negotiated in U.S. dollars will be converted into Canadian dollars u​sing a final currency exchange rate, available once the currency exchange period ends.
