FCC supports customers impacted by wet weather
Farm Credit Canada (FCC) is offering support to customers in parts of the Prairies facing financial hardship as a result of widespread excessive moisture that has delayed harvest and reduced the quality of this year’s crop.
Areas in Alberta, northern and central Saskatchewan have experienced significant levels of precipitation in late September and early October.
“The last days of harvest normally represent a grain farmer’s profits for the year, but those impacted by weeks of excessive moisture are working hard to take advantage of this break in the weather to salvage the crops remaining in the field from this year’s growing season,” said Michael Hoffort, FCC president and CEO. “This is a stressful time for those whose income has already been reduced due to unfavourable weather, so we want them to know we are here to help them through any financial hardship this moisture-delayed harvest has created.”
Although customer support is being offered in specific locations, FCC offers flexibility to all customers through challenging business cycles and unpredictable circumstances on a case-bycase basis. FCC will work with customers to come up with solutions for their operation.
Customers in Alberta, northern and central Saskatchewan are encouraged to contact their FCC relationship manager or the FCC Customer Service Centre at 1-888332-3301 to discuss their individual situation and options.
