CL153

CL153 is just one of the Clearfield varieties included in the zero percent APR financing offer.

A new program built on the multi-use account through John Deere Financial will offer Southern rice producers zero percent APR financing on purchases of Horizon Ag Clearfield and Provisia rice seed and BASF crop protection products for 2019.

Eligible rice seed varieties from Horizon Ag include Clearfield varieties CL111, CL151, CL153, CL163, CL172, CL272 and CLJ01 followed by Clearpath or Newpath herbicides.

In addition, the program includes Provisia rice variety PVL01 followed by Provisia herbicide, according to a news release.

Customers also can finance other BASF crop protection products applied to their rice acres, including Beyond, Facet L, Sharpen or Prowl H2O herbicides

“Horizon Ag and BASF have long partnered to give rice farmers more options, more flexibility and more opportunities to improve profitability,” Tim Walker, Horizon Ag general manager, said in the release. “This zero-percent APR financing program is a good example of that partnership, providing rice farmers an important cash flow management tool at a time when many are facing significant financial challenges.”

The zero-percent APR financing program, part of a farmer’s multi-use account with John Deere Financial, runs from Oct. 1, 2018, through Sept. 30, 2019, with payment due in full in December 2019.

The offer is valid in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee, Texas and Illinois. For more information, call 800-356-9033 or contact your local Horizon Ag and BASF authorized retailers.
