In smaller rural areas farmers rely on agriculture loans in order to finance certain activities and their operations. Despite the fact that these only comprise 1% of all bank loans, small, rural banks use roughly 6% of their assets in order to finance these loans. In most cases, these loans are seasonal in nature and farmers will use the proceeds from them to purchase feed, fertilizer, livestock, and seed. Suffice it to say, these smaller, rural lenders are well acquainted with the agriculture and farming industries.
Understanding Agriculture Credit
There are a number of credit instruments that can be used to provide farmers with the funding they need including:
- agriculture loans
- banker’s acceptances
- bills of exchange
These different types of financing can be tailored to address the specific needs of the borrower, most of which are determined by harvesting and planting cycles as well as marketing campaigns. Short-term loans finance their daily operations, intermediate-term loans go towards farm equipment and machinery, and long-term loans are used for purchasing additional properties.
