Is my production eligible for AgriInvest?
What is eligible for AgriInvest?
Most primary agricultural commodities are eligible for AgriInvest as long as they are produced in CanadaFootnote 1. For example:
- grains, oilseeds and special crops
Agricultural products that you produce and process on your farm may also be eligible providing you report the revenue from processing as farming income (loss) to the Canada Revenue Agency. Some examples of processed products include:
- strawberries made into jam
- beef made into beef jerky
- beeswax made into candles
- grain made into flour
If you farm as a custom feedlot operator, you are eligible based on the value of allowable commodities you produce (or purchase) and feed to livestock. You must also make an appreciable contribution to the growth and maturity of the livestock.
Only the income you earn on your production while it is under your control is eligible for AgriInvest. When the point of sale occurs is determined by the following conditions:'p>
- you produce the commodity on your farm
- it is separate and identifiable from other’s commodities
- you bear full risk for the commodity
- you have a separate invoice that shows the sale value and any deductions from the sale value
For information on point of sale, see What is point of sale?
