A farmer may use agricultural loans to finance seasonal farming operations or allied ventures like raising livestock, cultivating fish, or buying land or farm equipment. This kind of financing also aids in hiring labour for crop cultivation and harvesting as well as purchasing supplies like fertilizer, seeds, insecticides, and other things.
Agricultural loans are available to farmers starting at 7% p.a., with processing fees ranging from 0% to 4% of the loan amount. There are various types of agricultural loans taken by farmers.
Crop loans, also referred to as retail Agri loans, enable a farmer to cover short-term costs associated with the cultivation of crops, upkeep of farm machinery, and other post-farm activities. While applying for this loan, the farmer receives a credit card called a Kisan Credit Card. This can be used to withdraw money and utilise it to make the purchases they need for their farming operations.
