AgriShield® is a comprehensive risk assessment and mitigation platform for Canadian farmers developed under the leadership of Farm Management Canada (FMC).
Its content is based on FMC’s Comprehensive Guide to Managing Risk in Agriculture (2014) as well as on extensive research, including literature reviews and consultations that have taken place across Canada with industry stakeholders and experts, including farmers, advisors, academia and government.
This project was made possible through funding from the Growing Forward 2 (GF2) AgriRisk Initiative (ARI), a program supporting the research and development as well as the implementation and administration of new risk management tools for use in the agriculture sector.
FMC developed AgriShield® in partnership with the Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA), MNP and Groupe AGÉCO; the project team was supported by an Advisory Committee.
