Risk Management Program (RMP) Information Sessions Coming in Early November



    GUELPH, ON, Oct. 25 /CNW/ - Agricorp is offering information sessions for
grain and oilseed producers on the Risk Management Program (RMP) across
Ontario in early November.
    These sessions are primarily intended to provide eligible producers with
information as they decide whether RMP will meet their individual business
risk management needs. The deadline for submitting applications is
November 15, 2007, and the sessions will take place between November 5, and
November 12, 2007 in Woodstock, Ridgetown, Elmwood, Kemptville, Alfred,
Coldstream, Alliston, and Douro.
    Announced by the Ontario government on August 22, 2007, the Risk
Management Program will help grain and oilseed producers offset losses from
low commodity prices. It was designed in consultation with representatives of
the grain and oilseed industry and the Ontario Federation of Agriculture. It
joins the Canadian Agricultural Income Stabilization program and Production
Insurance as part of an effective business risk management strategy.
    Producers do not need to pre-register for the information sessions, which
are being offered at the following dates and locations:
