Business as usual: FarmCash has farmers’ backs during the busy growing season

During these unprecedented times, it’s business as usual for many services and Alberta’s crop sector is no exception. Crops will be seeded, fertilizers will be applied, and farmers will pay for this season’s inputs. The FarmCash program is here for Alberta farmers with the same mantra: business as usual.

Rooted in delivering superior customer service, FarmCash has Alberta producers front of mind. Despite adjusting to distancing measures and remote operations, FarmCash has maintained fast turnaround times on processing producers’ applications. FarmCash applicants receive funds within three to five business days upon submitting their complete application.

FarmCash allows Alberta producers to simplify their cash flow and gain marketing flexibility. Producers can qualify for up to $1 million with $100,000 interest free and the remainder at a competitive interest rate of TD Prime minus 0.75 per cent. FarmCash offers advances to Alberta producers on over 50 agriculture commodities including all major crops, livestock and honey.

Additionally, FarmCash makes applying for a cash advance easy. The convenient online application offers:

  • The ability to accept e-signatures
  • An automatic loan calculator
  • A document upload feature
  • And the option to have us verify priority agreements on your behalf
