How is my AgriInvest deposit calculated?
What is my deposit based on?
Your deposit is based on a percentage of your Allowable Net Sales.
What are Allowable Net Sales?
Allowable Net Sales are the gross sales minus purchases of your allowable commodities.
Allowable Net Sales calculation example:
Gross sales of allowable commodities (includes allowable program payments)
Purchases of allowable commodities (includes seed, plant, livestock purchases)
Allowable Net Sales
How much can I deposit and what will the government match?
You can make a deposit up to 100% of your Allowable Net Sales and receive a matching government contribution on 1% of your Allowable Net Sales.
Matching government contribution example:
Allowable Net Sales
You can deposit up to 100% of your Allowable Net Sales
You will receive a Matching Government Contribution on 1% of your Allowable Net Sales
Maximum and minimum deposits
The maximum Allowable Net Sales you can have in a year is $1 million. Based on this limit, the maximum matchable deposit you can make annually is $10,000.
The minimum deposit you can make that will be matched with government contributions is $250.
Maximum account balance
There is a limit to how much you can have in your AgriInvest account. The maximum account balance is 400% of your average Allowable Net Sales from the current and two prior program years.
If you did not report Allowable Net Sales for one or more of these years, we base your limit on the years available.
Mixed operations with supply managed commodities - adjusted Allowable Net Sales
Supply managed commodities are not eligible for AgriInvest. However, if you have a mixed operation with sales or purchases of supply managed commodities, your Allowable Net Sales are adjusted to reflect the non-supply managed portion of your commodities.
The adjusted Allowable Net Sales for mixed operations is calculated in six steps.
1. Net sales of allowable commodities
Gross sales of allowable (non-supply managed) commodities
Less purchases of allowable commodities
Allowable Net Sales ($120,000 - $50,000) =
2. Net sales of supply managed commodities
Gross sales of supply managed commodities
Less purchases of supply managed commodities
Supply managed commodities net sales ($100,000 - $20,000) =
3. Total net sales
Net sales allowable commodities
Plus net sales supply managed commodities
Total net sales ($70,000 + $80,000) =
4. Total gross sales
Gross sales allowable commodities
Plus gross sales of supply managed commodities
Total gross sales ($120,000 + $100,000) =
5. Gross sales (allowable commodities) percentage of Total gross sales
Gross sales of allowable commodities
Divided by total gross sales
$120,000 ÷ $220,000 =
6. Adjusted Allowable Net Sales
Total net sales × percentage
($150,000 × 54%) =
