Farmers unable to harvest their 2016 crops may be eligible for a cash advance under a revised application deadline. The Canadian Canola Growers Association will accept new seeded cash advance applications until March 2017.
“This deadline change applies equally to farmers already enrolled in the 2016 program, as well as those who are applying for the first time,” said Rick White, CEO of the canola association.
Farmers are still required to meet all existing seeded advance requirements, including Provision of Security through either crop insurance or AgriStability and a post-harvest report. The final date for repayment on a 2016 grain advance is Sept. 30, 2017.
