This timely topic will plow through the top 10 credit risks and allow you to provide seed questions in advance. Join us to learn more about how to harvest the opportunities of ag lending.

The past few years have been relatively good years for agriculture. Yields have been good; strong prices and higher income have allowed agricultural producers to reduce debt. Although good times do not last forever, they are the best opportunity to review and strengthen credit practices so there are no surprises when the next downturn occurs.

This webinar will explore the expectations for the agricultural economy nationally and globally. It will address the top 10 credit risks and practices, including cash versus accrual accounting, accurate financial statements, creating realistic cash flow projections, stress testing, assessing management skills, and more. Whether you are looking for a refresher or are new to ag lending, this program will be a great way to kick off the 2024 renewal season.


To customize this webinar, each registrant may submit up to two questions concerning agricultural issues. The most commonly asked questions will be addressed during the live program. Email your questions to Bob at by Friday, December 29, 2023, with “Webinar Questions for January 3rd” as the subject line.


This informative session is for all senior lending officers, loan officers, and credit analysts that are involved in agricultural lending or are interested in expanding into agricultural lending.
