Corn aid

The Glengarry News - - Farming -

The fed­eral and On­tario gov­ern­ments are im­prov­ing the corn pro­duc­tion in­sur­ance plan by in­tro­duc­ing a new tiered corn sal­vage ben­e­fit for farm­ers who suf­fered losses from de­oxyni­valenol (DON) last year. The new tiered sal­vage ben­e­fit will more ac­cu­rately re­flect the ad­di­tional costs as­so­ci­ated with har­vest­ing and han­dling corn af­fected by the mould and help pro­duc­ers try­ing to find a mar­ket for it. The sup­port, pro­vided un­der the Cana­dian Agri­cul­tural Part­ner­ship, will be­gin in the 2019 crop year; the sal­vage ben­e­fit is ex­panded to in­clude or­ganic pro­duc­ers.
