A Growth in Non-Traditional Agricultural Financing Sources

Three features this week on non-traditional agricultural financing, and its rising prominence in the agricultural lending field.

1) K-State risk management specialist Jenny Ifft and Purdue University agricultural economist Brady Brewer talk about the various sources of non-traditional financing and the degree to which they're claiming a greater share of the agriculture credit market.

2) Based on a series of studies recently conducted by a team of agricultural economists from several leading land-grant universities, K-State risk management specialist Jenny Ifft is joined by agricultural economists Brady Brewer of Purdue and Brian Briggeman of K-State for a look at the likely impact of current economic inflation and rising interest rates on the supply and demand for non-traditional farm loans.

3) The final segment of this week's series on the growth in non-traditional agricultural financing, based on a new report put together by a team of land-grant university agricultural economists:  this time, K-State's Jenny Ifft is joined by Bruce Ahrendsen of the University of Arkansas, as he outlines his study of how non-traditional finance relates to USDA farm loan defaults...and Will Secor of the University of Georgia shares his research on where non-traditional creditors land in the pecking order when it comes to debt repayments in Chapter 12 farm bankruptcy cases.
