Crop Selection

2017 Lima Bean Agreement

Agreement was reached with Bonduelle Ontario Inc. on the 2017 crop of lima beans for processing.

There were no changes price from 2016.

The only change was to Food Safety (Section 5) to read as follows:

The grower shall be required to maintain and submit within 60 days of seeding, a written record of growers crop protection products applied.   Failure to do so shall constitute breach of contract and may result in processor not harvesting crop.  Processor shall determine the approved crop protection products to be applied.  Failure to adhere to this list by the grower may result in non-harvest of crop.  Any acres unharvested as a result, would not be considered by-passed acres.  Where the grower has not submitted records as required, processor shall send a registered letter to the grower within 5 days of harvest of growers’ crop notifying grower that payment is being withheld pending receipt of records.
