No minimum input spend required for standard new customer financing program.
Finance qualifying FBN Direct® input purchases at 0% for your first purchase and any purchases made within 30 days. This 0% offer on items purchased during the 30 day window will remain as long as payment is made on respective financing due dates.

Purchase a minimum $20,000 on crop protection, seed, animal health or livestock purchases.

Are there any fees or additional costs to the farmer?
Can a farmer have 2 operating loans from 2 different lenders?
Yes, you can but it depends on the collateral position needed by each lender.
Are operating lines only available for row crop farmers?
Operating lines require crop production for the collateral, so multi-function crop and livestock operations may be a fit, but single livestock operations are not a good fit.
Can I only use my operating line with FBN?
No. While you can use your operating line to buy inputs from FBN, you can also use it to purchase products and services not offered by FBN. Buy inputs from other vendors, pay rent, pay for labor and much more.
Will FBN’s name be on my checks?
FBN’s name is not on grain or crop insurance checks.
