Ontario's Risk Management Program (RMP) helps producers manage risks beyond their control, like fluctuating costs and market prices. Under the RMP plan for edible horticulture, producers deposit funds into self-directed risk management (SDRM) accounts and the deposit is matched by the government to help mitigate risk associated with farm business.
Agricorp sends personalized participation forms along with the SDRM Edible Horticulture Participant Handbook (for new participants) and the Rates, Dates and Updates Information Sheet to eligible producers in September. The participant handbook and information sheet work together to provide all the information you need to participate in SDRM.
RMP funding increased to $150 million
