Deadline to apply for farm grants extended to April 14

The federal govern­ment wants farmers to be aware there is a $600-million AgriInvest program and to ensure farmers have enough time to apply.
Minister of Agriculture Gerry Ritz announced recently the deadline for applica­tions has been extended to April 14.
“This government is deliv­ering new, simpler, predictable, and bankable programs for farmers.” said Ritz.
To assist producers in risk management pro­grams, the government is pro­vid­ing one time cash for AgriInvest accounts. Producers who have not received a letter need to apply by April 14.  For more information call, 1-866-367-8506 from 7am to 6pm or visit www.­
