Farm Progress America, March 30, 2021

Max Armstrong reports on a recent report showing improving credit conditions on the farm

Max Armstrong shares insight from the Kansas City Federal Reserve which shows there's been a pullback in farm lending but digging in it turns out it's because of strengthened credit conditions. Ag debt at commercial banks eased further near the end of last year, due to general improvement of the ag economy. Higher crop prices and an influx of government payments have helped.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
