The AgriInvest program allows participants to annually deposit an amount into an account of up to 1.0% of their operation's allowable net sales (ANS) of allowable products and to receive a matching government contribution. However, it is possible for participants to annually deposit an amount into their account that does not exceed the ANS of their operation.
