Canada Production Insurance Regulations

Version of section 8 from 2006-03-22 to 2018-06-11:

Marginal note:Probable yield methodologies

  •  (1) A production insurance agreement shall provide for probable yield methodologies and shall provide that

    • (a) probable yields shall be determined in accordance with those methodologies; and

    • (b) those methodologies shall be subject to the national certification guidelines.

  • Marginal note:Statistical measure of yield

    (2) In establishing those methodologies, a statistical measure of yield that is based on actual yields per seeded area shall be used. That measure may be adjusted to reflect the demonstrated productive capability of producers and may take into account the average level of quality produced related to the levels of quality of the agricultural product provided for in an insurance plan.

  • Marginal note:Data sources

    (3) If insurance data is unavailable or unrepresentative as a data source for determining the probable yield of an agricultural product, other data sources may be used, as agreed to by the parties to the agreement.
