Results of Benchmark Program
Over the past 4 years NSGA members have had an opportunity to participate in an annual benchmark program. Each participant received annual benchmark reports of their financial data compared to the group data which was provided by the contracted consultant AgriSolutions. The participants and consultant met as a group annually over the program period to discuss results and their significance to individual operations. This is the first time that NSGA members have had this opportunity to benchmark their financial data against other growers for comparison and to create industry benchmarks. This project is now complete. 75% of the funding for this program was provided by Growing Forward 2, The Agricultural Adaptation Council and the Ontario and Federal Government.
The final benchmark report findings for 2013-2015 are available Click here to view.
