To date, almost $300 million has been handed out nationally to close to 134, 000 producers.

And producers who have not yet received their initial share of the $400 million production payment are urged to apply before the September 1st deadline.

Cynthia Booden Firth is the Chief of Client Outreach with Agriculture and Agri-food Canada. She says the program is helping producers adjust with high production costs.

In Saskatchewan, 47,000 producers have received over $88 million.
