Feb. 15, 2013, Winnipeg, MB - CWB is issuing final payments to farmers for the wheat, durum wheat and barley they delivered to the CWB pools during the 2011-12 crop year. These payments represent the balance of the money owing to farmers after their grain has been marketed through the CWB pools, and after operating costs have been deducted.
Direct deposits will be made to farmers' accounts on February 26. Farmers who receive payment by cheque can expect to begin receiving them in the mail on March 7.
A complete listing of payments for all grades in dollars per tonne and dollars per bushel is posted at www.cwb.ca (click Farmers > Farmer Payments).
Farmers who wish to defer their payments have until February 22 to notify CWB by calling 1-800-275-4292 with their PIN and 8-digit Customer Number. Producers can also defer payments online through CWB 2011-12 e-Services.
