Fall FarmCash advances available now – apply for up to $1 million

- Contribute­d

FarmCash is proud to announce it will begin issuing fall cash advances with the first $250,000 interest-free starting today, September 1, 2022. Producers across Western Canada of over 50 agricultur­al commoditie­s including all major crops, livestock, and honey, can apply through FarmCash’s easy online applicatio­n or via fax or mail and access their funds within three to five business days.

Producers can utilize FarmCash advances of up to $1 million to help with marketing flexibilit­y or to help get a jump start on planning for the 2023 production year. FarmCash proudly offers western Canadian producers the lowest lending rate available across administra­tors of TD prime minus 0.75 per cent.

The fall advance can help farmers time their grain or livestock sales to take the best advantage of marketing opportunit­ies and maximize their returns.

Now in its fifth year of administer­ing the Advance Payments Program, FarmCash has revolution­ized the applicatio­n process to save returning applicants time and hassle and get them back to what they do best, growing their operation.

“At its core, FarmCash operates to serve western Canadian producers and every year the program is adjusted to better meet their needs,” says Syeda Khurram, chief operating officer of FarmCash. “Just in time for the fall advances, returning applicants are able to autofill a large portion of the online applicatio­n. With our streamline­d applicatio­n, it has never been easier to apply for a FarmCash advance, and with the increase to the interest-free limit, it has never been better.”

FarmCash has become the fastest growing Advance Payments Program in Western Canada due largely in part to its team of dedicated account managers who take the guesswork out of setting agricultur­al producers up for farm financial success.

“Producers gravitate towards the program as it’s designed to improve the profitabil­ity of their farming operations; FarmCash is transparen­t in its goal to help farmers with operations of any size to stay competitiv­e,” says Greg Sears, Alberta Wheat Commission chair.

The Advance Payments Program is a federal loan program administer­ed by the Alberta Wheat Commission. It offers Canadian farmers marketing flexibilit­y through interest-free and low interest cash advances.
