AgriStability

In Saskatchewan agriculture, there are no guarantees. While you cannot control the weather, market fluctuations or rising input costs, you can manage your risk with AgriStability.

AgriStability is a low-cost business risk management program designed to help farm operations facing large margin declines caused by production loss, increased costs or market conditions. Coverage is personalized for each farm by using historical information, based on income tax and supplementary information.

AgriStability under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership

AgriStability is a national program under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) agreement on agriculture policy.  This five-year federal-provincial-territorial funding agreement governs business risk management (BRM) programs such as Crop Insurance, AgriStability, Western Livestock Price Insurance and AgriInvest.

Changes to BRM programs, including AgriStability, took effect for the 2018 program year. The major change to AgriStability involves the Reference Margin Limit (RML). Producers are now guaranteed that the RML used in their program calculations will never be less than 70 per cent of their conventional reference margin. This change will help producers with a low cost expense structure which would have resulted in a low reference margin.
