The Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) will offer farmers a full portfolio of grain-marketing programs in the 2012-13 crop year, including pooling options, futures contracts and cash prices.
“The grain-marketing landscape is changing, but farmers’ business needs are the same,” says CWB president and CEO Ian White. “Farmers want good returns for their grain, solid risk management and timely cash flow. We’re ready to deliver competitive alternatives that farmers can use with confidence as they build individual marketing strategies.”
Detailed program information will be announced throughout 2012. †
