We live this every day. We know the industry. We understand the challenges all farmers face each day.  That’s how this unique product was born. It’s a new, private, revenue-based risk management solution backed by a major Canadian insurer and it does what no other insurance can do.  Simply put, Production Cost Insurance is a multi-peril product that insures 100% of the fertilizer, seed and chemicals costs plus a specific amount of revenue per acre.  If your inputs costs rise, so does your coverage with no additional premium. www.agrisksolutions.ca
