Grain Farmers of Ontario deferred payment regulations

GUELPH, ON (November 21, 2011) – As the 2011 crop year comes to a conclusion and many grain farmers are considering whether to defer crop payments, Grain Farmers of Ontario has produced an information sheet on the changes to the Grains Act made in December 2010.

In summary, there are several things to keep in mind when entering into deferred payment agreements:

  • The deferred payment must be voluntary, and agreed to by both the grain dealer/elevator operator and the farmer/owner.
  • The deferred payment must be in writing and clearly set out when the dealer/elevator must pay the farmer/owner.
  • All deferred payments must be paid in full on or before July 1, 2012.

“The current amendments to the Grains Act are in place until July 1, 2012,” says Don Kenny, Chair of Grain Farmers of Ontario. “Our organization is working alongside the Ontario Agri-Business Association and with government and Agricorp to ensure a permanent decision on deferred payments is in place on or before July 1, 2012.”

To see complete details on the Deferred Payment Regulations or to view the Grains Act please visit www.gfo.ca/governmentrelations and follow the links provided.  Grain Farmers of Ontario will continue to update members on our website as information becomes available.

Market Trends Report for June-July 2017

Monday, June 12, 2017

It is a critical time of the year for grain markets. Across the US corn belt as well as Ontario, farmers have been planting since mid April. It continues. As of May 28th 91% of US corn has been planted and 67% of US soybeans. There are wide variations on this theme as the Eastern and Southern corn belt has seen more of its share of wet weather causing many planting delays. As we move into late June it is a time where the US crop is setting up to be made and marketing decisions for that crop are accentuated by market volatility. The June 9th USDA report gave us another indication of the supply of grain in the US and around the world.
