Alberta cereal crops from 2016 that remained in the field over winter are gradually being dealt with.
The low quality of that material has prompted Alberta’s Agriculture Financial Services Corp. to introduce a temporary Salvage Grade factor to deal with the high volume of low quality cereals.
“Clients who have sold grain at a lower price than the grade factors reflect can submit the sales receipt for consideration,” the AFSC says.
“For 2016 unharvested crop, receipts from CGC (Canadian Grain Commission) licensed and unlicensed buyers will be used, providing they are arms-length transactions as defined by AFSC.”
