Once again, Horizon Ag and BASF, in association with John Deere Financial and Rabo AgriFinance, are offering rice farmers two 0% APR financial programs for seed and crop protection products for the 2021 season.
“Having the ability to secure 0% financing for seed and herbicide products is not just a good deal for farmers who need the financing for that initial purchase,” Dr. Tim Walker, Horizon Ag general manager, said in a news release. “It also can be a strategic approach to ensure cash flow is available to better afford late-season applications essential to maintaining yield potential.”
This is the third straight year Horizon Ag and BASF have partnered to provide 0% APR financing for their products.
Under the John Deere Financial program, farmers can use their multi-use account to finance what they need this season at 0% APR. They also can choose to use the 0% financing program from Rabo AgriFinance to purchase products from Horizon Ag and BASF.
Eligible products for both programs may include:
• Horizon Ag Clearfield varieties – New CLL16 and CLL17, as well as the established varieties CL111, CL151, CL153, CL163, CLJ01, CLL15 and CLM04, followed by Clearpath herbicide or Newpath herbicide.
• Horizon Ag Provisia rice varieties – PVL02 and PVL03, followed by Provisia herbicide and Facet L herbicide.
Products may be purchased at different times from one or multiple Horizon Ag and BASF authorized retailers. The programs began on Oct. 1, 2020, and will run through Sept. 30, 2021. A minimum purchase of one product and $5,000 minimum purchase are required, with payment due in full by December 2021.
