Welcome to AgriShield! A Risk Assessment and Mitigation Platform for Canadian Farmers

What is AgriShield®

A Farm Management Canada initiative

AgriShield® is the first Canadian platform to offer a 360° vision to assess and manage risks on the farm. This platform guides farmers through 6 families of risks that they may encounter. It also helps to leverage existing risk management tools and professional services offered to farmers. With AgriShield®, producers are able to put an action plan in place to minimize threats and maximize opportunities for their business.

Your Sustainability Score

This AgriShield feature was added to allow you to obtain a preliminary measure of your farm’s sustainability, while assessing your farm for risk exposure and preparedness, and all without doing any extra work! AgriShield was benchmarked to the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (SAI) Platform’s Farm Sustainability Assessment (FSA), an internationally recognized farm sustainability measure. The AgriShield platform was officially rated as Gold Equivalent by FSA representatives.
