Getting this year’s crop off the field and into the bin has been a challenge this year.
Wet weather during the harvest really pushed back operations.
Farmers who have been unable to harvest their 2016 crops may be eligible for a cash advance under a revised application deadline.
For this program year, Canadian Canola Growers Association (CCGA) will accept new seeded cash advance applications until March 2017.
This deadline change applies equally to farmers already enrolled in the 2016 program, as well as those who are applying for the first time.”
CCGA are now accepting applications for unharvested grain.
Farmers are still required to meet all existing seeded advance requirements.
