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)

- $20,000

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

- $50,000

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

- $20,000

Supply managed commodities net sales ($100,000 - $20,000) =


3. Total net sales

Net sales allowable commodities


Plus net sales supply managed commodities

+ $80,000

Total net sales ($70,000 + $80,000) =


4. Total gross sales

Gross sales allowable commodities


Plus gross sales of supply managed commodities

+ $100,000

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

÷ $220,000

$120,000 ÷ $220,000 =


6. Adjusted Allowable Net Sales

Total net sales × percentage

($150,000 × 54%) =
