The PEI Department of Agriculture and Land has established the Post-tropical Storm Dorian Response Program to provide financial support to corn, crambe, and tree fruit producers who have incurred extra-ordinary costs due to Dorian which are not covered by existing BRM programs.
All applications are due no later than March 19, 2021.
The funding will be as follows:
- Corn (grain, silage, snaplage/cobmeal)
- Up to $50/acre
- Up to $26/acre
- Tree fruit
- $1000/acre of fully affected Fruit Trees
- $500/acre of partially affected Fruit Trees
These numbers are subject to change on a prorate basis if demand for payments exceed estimated acreage.
The Department has Steven Hamill as a contact for corn and crambe producers to help answer questions.
