Extended Deadline to enroll in AgriStability Program

Tue. 2 Jul, 2019 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The deadline to enrol for 2019 AgriStability has been extended to July 2, 2019

AgriStability is a low-cost risk management program offering financial assistance to producers who experience large margin declines due to production loss, adverse market conditions or increased costs.

“AgriStability is an essential tool to help farmers manage risks and financial losses due to poor yields, low commodity prices, or rising input costs,” said Bibeau. “The federal government will continue to work closely with the Saskatchewan government to provide farmers with the tools and programs they need to help them manage significant risks that are beyond their capacity to manage.”

In Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation has administered the AgriStability Program since the 2009 program year. In the last three program years, AgriStability paid benefits of more than $200 million to Saskatchewan producers. In the 2016 program year, AgriStability benefits totalling more than $73.64 million were paid to 1,491 Saskatchewan producers.

Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation has 21 customer service offices across the province where producers can discuss their risk management plans with a program advisor. Producers may also call the AgriStability call centre at 1-866-270-8450, Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
