​​​Calculating​ your annu​​al Production Insurance premium

Your annual premium is based on:

  • Base premium rate
  • Guaranteed value
  • Discounts and surcharges (D or S)

The premium is calculated using​​ this formula:

Annual premium = base premium rate ​​× guaranteed value × D or S

Base premium r​​​ate

The base premium rate is determined at renewal time each year. It may change due to factors like past performance of the plan, changes to claim prices and the level of the Ontario Agricultural Products Insurance Fund.

Guaranteed va​​​lue

Your guaranteed value is determined by multiplying your guaranteed production by your selected claim price.

Guaranteed value = guaranteed production × selected claim price

Guaranteed value for Brix varieties = your historical yield × claim price based on your final average Brix

Discounts and ​​su​​rcharges

If you have had Production Insurance for more than 1 year, your premium rate may be discounted or surcharged. Discounts and surcharges are determined by comparing your individual claim rate for a commodity to the claim rate for the commodity as a whole.
