The 2019 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 does not have any values for the pre-harvest or post-harvest prices. These have not been calculated yet by OMAFRA. However, producers can enter what they think these values could be and will be able to estimate the payments based on the estimated values. Premiums and support levels are automatically calculated, and producers can use the calculator to compare various support levels and estimate program payments.
The RMP calculator can be downloaded here.
