Pool Contract

Is it for me?
You want a solid average return for a component of your grain, and are flexible on payment timing. Available in Western Canada only.

How does it work?
Futures and basis are averaged throughout the pooling period. G3's pool management fee puts a ceiling on local basis levels:

What should I think about?

  • Pools are an excellent risk management tool.
  • Receive an initial payment upon delivery, and receive adjustment payments as pool grain is sold. Receive your final net payment when all grain in the pool has been sold.
  • Delivery is coordinated with your local G3 elevator, and can occur throughout the pooling period.
  • G3 endeavours to complete all sales by the end of the pooling period, and to issue final payments shortly after.
