The Canadian Wheat Board’s 2010-11 Advance Payments Program (pre-harvest) begins April 1, with the following rates per tonne in place: wheat $80; durum $70; barley $58. Farmers can receive up to $400,000, with the first $100,000 interest-free. Applicants must have 2010 all-risk provincial crop insurance to be eligible. Agristability can be used as security if crop insurance is not in place. Forms will be available at most grain-handling facilities. For more information call 1-800-275-4292 or see
