2016 Risk Management Program Calculator Now Available

GUELPH, ON (January 9, 2017) – The 2016 Risk Management Program (RMP) calculator is now available for download.

The RMP calculator is designed to help growers calculate the value of enrolling in the program. The calculator is based on both known figures (support prices, premiums) and producers own estimates of their expected harvest prices.
